Please help with Mysteria
I used a template of Wolfhound’s and then adapted, inserting my own stuff. It seems to me that some of the CSS code works and some doesn’t so I am not sure if I should remove all or none or just some, but the main changes I would like to make are:
MAIN LOOK OVERALL:
Use the “faded parchment” (http://cdn.obsidianportal.com/assets/177083/Paperbacklight.jpg(Paperbacklight)
background as the backing for the text in the central section, which is currently white, and use a darker brown colour for the actual background that appears on the left and right bars supporting this. I like my previous insert, Dark Brown Scratched Wall (http://cdn.obsidianportal.com/assets/177039/Brown_Grunge.jpg(Brown Grunge) for this but the original image was 585 x 439 px and the Info under the BACKGROUND DROP function recommends a minimum of 1000 x 800 px so I am also fine with using another dark brown background if my preference doesn’t work. Hopefully, that should enable the light coloured text to be seen better.
(Possibly have the central text block widened but this is not serious. I have currently set the width on the CONTENT MAX WIDTH as 1700).
On most pages (apart from FRONT WIKI PAGE), I like the new Fonts but if the page is now FADED PARCHMENT instead of white, I would prefer the text to be very dark brown instead of black, with the LINKS being a light brown colour, possible changing to orange or red on hover/click.
I love the new Character Page exactly AS IS and would not change it other than the darker background as described above.
Individual Wiki pages should look as they are but on FADED PARCHMENT instead of white, juxtaposed with DARK background as described above and font colours changes as described above.
Calendar page should follow this trend, as well as maps and items (i.e. darker background only). I had not made any adjustments to ADVENTURE LOG style as we had not started playing, but would generally like to keep the same feel throughout.
Forum pages look fine as they are, even with the faded parchment background, although if overall style demands darker background that is also cool, so long as text can be read easily.
PLAYER CHARACTER DSTs: The new fonts on these are much better. I would still prefer them to be on FADED PARCHMENT (rather than white), with dark brown background (in line with other pages).
FRONT WIKI PAGE:
I had originally copied a WOLFHOUND design of identical pictures, three in a row, with Text in each one that provided a link to the WIKI Pages. I would now like to keep this positioning but I wish to substitute a different picture for each link. (I can replace MOCKUP pictures at a later date when style is arranged). I don’t mind too much about any suggested FONT changes but I would like a definite change in colour on HOVER. (Pictures were just SQUARE BOXES in terms of their shape).
I would like to keep the flashing Mandala and may change the TITLES: “Windows of Mysteria”, “Doors to Mysteria” and “Development” to something a little more dramatic in terms of FONT CHOICE.
IMAGES OF THE PAST:
Before the Reforge, I took snapshots of my whole CSS EDIT section, as well as snapshots of each page to show how it looked before (although I am quite into moving forward and not sticking to the old style). If those would be helpful, I can always email them to a prospective Vanguard Advisor.
My BANNER is temporary at the moment and I can easily change it later to suit layout!
Much hope and anticipation. I am really at a loss with the CSS component, having copied and pasted from template with not too much understanding of how it works.
