    So I'm working on a new design for my site: (link removed as per private request--TheGAME1264) , all pages are based on vBulletin(vbIndex hack).

    The frontpage is the basis for how I want the whole site to look ie. logo(will be changing slightly), colour scheme, top navigation bar and columns(some may need to be dropped depending on the page viewed).

    My problems: for a start I'm not sure of the best way for the forums to look when trying to retain this design. I've done a bit with the colour scheme but I'm not happy, suggestions would be appreciated.

    My biggest problem right now is getting the forums to look right with this design. On the front page the top nav menu is joined to the left column, completing the look I'm after but on any of the forum pages, the top nav menu and forum buttons are kinda just floating below the logo as there is no left column, what to do? The "white space" to the sides of the frontpage looks fine I think but not so when viewing the forum, something needs to change?

    I will probably do the "space between category" template mod but something else is need to make the tables look better then? I don't want to go overboard with images on all the tables as speed is important, it just needs something else?

    I might make the forum buttons the same style as the top menu ones, not sure of the best way or how to locate them though? I think I will get rid of the breadcumb too, opinions?

    All other pages in the top nav menu will eventually be changed to the frontpage format, suggestions on the best way for any of them to look would also be appreciated, though I'm not worried about them too much for now.

    Sorry about the length of this post, just the ideas in my head spilling out :dead:

    Thanks for reading and hopefully you guys will have some suggestions for me,

    G :classic:

    Hi there, nice site you have, looks liek its generated a lot of interest. As for the technicalites of it I've never worked with vBulletin and might suggest that you post on thier oficial forums or some other place that closely follows vBuletin.
    The colour scheme though, I'm sure your too far ahead to be bothered with the coulor scheme for a while but if you were to redo it I would suggest lowering the predominance of the blue at the left hand side. Kind of experiment with a few combinations of colours to achieve the same to colour seperation effect but derive them from your logo.gif.
    I would use a dropper to take colours from the actual image and experiment with a few of them, that way you'll achieve a greater harmony. Sorry I couldn't be of other help though.

    Welcome to the board, TheMasterG!

    According to The WDF Rules, discussion of vBulletin and related stuff isn't allowed in order to prevent vBulletin pirates from getting support (brother filburt has paid for the licence). I'm going to close the thread at this point for this reason.
