In that case, i would create a "Proudest Monkeys" title with a fancy photoshop font, save it on the same red background color, and upload it as an image. I'll quickly show you what i mean. will edit this thread asap.

edit: here. i used the font called 'Kristen ITC' and added a 2pt stroke and a drop shadow. looks cool i think kinda playful... monkey-ish

whipy,

There will be a big alignment problem when I insert an image there, but this can be done.

What can't be done is combining the background gradient and your pic.

What I can do is embed your pic in the background. A raw .psd image would be useful.

The tabs redesigned are coming up after I take a shower.

edit: btw, like it

edit2: I'm not quite sure about this. If the community is to grow, we'll have a couple of MySQL queries at start and we might be going too slow in terms of load times, but let's try the pic for now.

edit3: I have a different solution

An updated version.

Could use whipy's font 'cause it's non-free.

Tab font turns black with mouse over them.



Hope you like it, please comment.

I'd rather leave the slogan easy editable.

Anyway, pm'd.

Ok. Red looks good.

Some notes: (no offense)
- I would change the "Proudest Monkeys" font. It's hard to decide if we take a more "comic" font or a "serious" font (like Verdana, etc.)
- I would cut the "Articles" section. Articles, News etc. should be on the main page. A great option would be that just "logged-in" users can read the whole article or news. Something like: Via a "read more" hyperlink.
- Right under the "Who's new" and "Who's online" there could be some DMB-related things. Like: last played setlist (antsmarching.org) style, track of the day, album of the week, etc.

Some good points there, Jacob. I think it would be okay to go for the more playful font, since we have a playful monkey logo anyway (although that may not be the definitive one).

i know it's not the intention of making money off this site, but - for example to pay for our bandwith - maybe we could get some links on there to dmb cd's (combining it with the 'album of the week' idea). there's sites like Amazon (i think they offer that service anyway), where you can earn money for your site if someone clicked a 'get it at Amazon' link from your site to theirs and purchased an album.

@font

Like I said, I not good that it at all. Please agree on something and I'll make it look that way.

@content

The things on the screenshot are just to show the layout and have no meaning whatsoever. That's why I wanted you to tell me what features to implement.

@setlist

Can do.

@ads

It really depens on who's going to get involved. If it's only three people, then maybe it's a good idea.

@Jo

Thanks for the file.

Not that I'm resting. I've done some work on the modules. Think we're gonna need a new server now, there's not much more I can do locally.

Anyway, I'm off to Germany. Rethink things, please, I'll be back on Monday.

I'm gonna go off-line for two weeks starting Sat to ease the stress and I'll have time to work.

Wishes and opinions would be cool, dylan contacting me on what's possible and what's not would be even cooler.
