    Finally I am posting. Here it is

    http://www.worldcinemaforum.com

    Movies are everything to me. I watch all kinds of movies with no barriers. Have been working very hard for the past one month on this forum. Yet to come up with a good logo.

    Open for suggestions, criticism & contribution.;)

    Thanks

    I really like the header look as it gives me the feeling of a movie theater before the show starts. Depending on the width of the browser though, things don't remain centered as it seems the left side is fixed width. See below.

    This gets worse though when going a bit narrower as the next shot shows.

    and when scrolling over to the right...

    That is really my only comment. Again I like the look of the header. Maybe you could expand on that and have your logo appear in the center of the blackened header, fading in like a movie starting...

    BTW I will pass this site along to my nephew, a big movie nut.

    thanks a ton Robert. the width problem is with the old version browsers. The template support team said this is obvious with fixed width templates and it is impossible to rectify because the whole style has to changed. Not yet sure if its the same with latest version browsers. Can you tell me which browser and version you're using.

    Thanks again :)

    Sure. Just checked at home with the latest FF and Chrome, both with the same result. If you can, post a screen shot of the Style Propoerties: General: Page Width Controller section. Something is amiss. :)

    I can replicate the issue Robert detailed in any version of any browser. The problem occurs because of the method used to position the two background graphics either side of the main content. Specifically:

    Code:
    .pageWidthAlt {
        margin: 0 auto;
        width: 1184px;
    }
    Removing the width element fixes the problem in terms that the page will now collapse correctly but unfortunately that causes the two aforementioned background graphics to miss-align. A single, centred, background graphic would easily fix the issue but that comes with a slight bandwidth payload i.e. an increased image size.

    I would also consider getting a professionally designed logo that reflects more the content of your site. Here's one I mashed together earlier :D

    In general your site looks pretty good though and I wish you the best of luck with it (y)

    Thanks Robert, I have shown this discussion to the theme developer and he is working on what zappaDPJ has said. Hopefully the problem will be rectified. :)

    It was really just a rather thrown together example of what your forum might look like with a logo designed around the forum theme. It's pretty generic and not particularly good but if you like it you are more than welcome to use it :)

    I've cleaned it up a bit and attached it as a png file so it'll look reasonable no matter what colour background it sits on. You'll need to adjust the logo height setting. In case you don't know how to do this, from the admin control panel go to Styles > Style Properties (of the appropriate style) > Header and Navigation > Height of Header Logo which should be set to 96px and click the 'Update Style Settings' button.

    Nice looking theme.

    I would personally add in some better suited node icons, possibly have a different nodeicon per forum I just don't think the red characters convey very well the niche of your site. But otherwise great looking forum nice job.
