New website!?!
« on: September 27, 2013, 15:05:30 »
Hi all,

I am having some issues with our current wesite host, mail keeps messing up etc
So between now and a few months I will be migrating this forum to a new host.

Anyhow.. shall I make a new website? I am sure I can do better then our current.
Anybody know some examples of clan websites they like, site with a 2014 vibe to it?

What about the software, do we want to stay with SMF and tiny portal? Or shall we try something new?
Drupal seems to be the pro way to go, but we gamers like features that might not be available on a system like that...

There are hooks to different forum packages, smf doesnt see to be popular, but do we like smf? maybe Vbullatin? or phpBB? Anybody have experiences with these forum types? Likes? Dislikes?

So if any of you have any idea on what a good base could be for a forum like ours, let me know!

Cheers,
T

I wonder -

Could we make it less dark? It's very black atm. What about nice blues? Might make it cleaner and easier to see.
I think we need to make sure that the provider offers us what we need. I guess if it allows us to upload our own CSS to customise etc. then it makes it easier? I can't remember if that's possible when we setup this one?

TCP have gone very simple, which I don't think is easy to see what's going on. FFM's is nice, but then they've got black as well. Does it have to be black?! lol

I guess we could also do with the logo being a bit clearer - it looks naff on this page. lol.

Depends what they offer.

But to be honest, I think we could do better, but maybe if we make it a bit cleaner and simplify the navigation perhaps? I am not sure about tools etc, I usually just stick to the basic HTML/CSS - but then if there's options, whatever's easiest.

:)

So basically... whatever ! :D

I was kinda talking tech specs, not design -  functions, features etc etc :-) hosting isnt the issue.

Feel free to make a design!

I can only relate to design, not tech stuff, and I like the current setup and design. Ive liked Tiny Portals setup and design since we went there. Colours and maybe layout could be discussed, but I really like it as it is. I think this is one of the best designs I see when moving around between forum pages. I really dont vote for a design chance.
