Please help me with template - Out of Skills error

Postby Darkhog » January 13th, 2010, 3:02 pm

Please help me with creating layout for my comic, because XHTML and CSS scares me. Graphics are already created, if someone will want to help me with that i'll send them via PM (I don't want my layout to be stolen). I already created all graphics (background, first/next/prev/last buttons) and a vis to show how it should looks, I only need someone to put it together, because I don't know anything about xhtml and css - i'm graphic, not webmaster (but layout is already cutted down to images of buttons, frames, etc. because I done some templates for phpbb and know something about it, css was created by another person).

//EDIT: Ok, After consideration I'll put all images here in hope that there are only honest people, not template stealers.
http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/5059 ... ldlook.png - this is my vis about how it layout should looks. Under buttons should be comic combobox and under it comments on black background with white letters

And there are images of layout. Names are self-explainable, I think.

As I wrote before I need only person who put it together and give me proper codes to copy-paste. Images will be on imageshack and css i'll put to other server, because I have no donator/premium account and have no money for it.

Thanks. At least someone read this thread. I read wiki about making own templates, even there was one comic about how to make it, but xhtml and even normal html combined with css make me go nuts, so i stopped to try make template on my own.

A few questions...
Do you want the pink bg to go all the way across the screen?
What font do you want to use for words?
Do you want rating stars and if so, where at on the page?
How do you want the comments area to look? (besides a black bg?) You can suggest any type of layout and I can let you know if I can do it (a picture with example comments would be helpful, unless you want it to look exactly like an existing template with minor changes).
How do you want the menu to look? (Besides the black bg and white words?) What happens when you put the cursor over a word?
How should the News/Welcome Page look?
How should the Archive look?
And, what are the dimensions of the banner picture at the top of the pages?

If you can't answer some, don't worry about it. I can let you see what I have and then you can tell me what to change.

Yes, it's tiled bg
What font do you want to use for words?
As in current layout ( http://mtdw.smackjeeves.com )
Do you want rating stars and if so, where at on the page?
Under comic (but on the black area), same goes for "share" icons, etc.
How do you want the comments area to look? (besides a black bg?) You can suggest any type of layout and I can let you know if I can do it (a picture with example comments would be helpful, unless you want it to look exactly like an existing template with minor changes).

After putting cursor over link it'll change color from #FFFFFF to #808080
How should the News/Welcome Page look?
I don't use it, so you can leave it. My comic uses last comic for welcome page (as most comics I've seen do). You can even remove link to news
How should the Archive look?
As in current template, but black/white coloring and links as in menu. Headers (#, title, etc.) can be bold
And, what are the dimensions of the banner picture at the top of the pages?
This'll be exact same banner that is in smackjeeves comic selector(TM) so smackjeeves baner's dimensions apply

more questions. If you don't know or have no opinion about something, that's okay. I'm just asking because I want it to look as much the way you want it as possible.

Should the black menu area be the same width as the black comments area?

Do you want to show what date and time the comments have been posted? If so, where do you want to show it?
What do you want to happen if some people have a different size of avatar than other people? Do you want to make all avatars the same size, or do you want to make the text column larger for smaller avatars?
What do you want to happen if someone doesn't have an avatar? Do you want to have the comment text take up the whole space?
Do you want to label author comments and user comments? How?
Where do you want the button(s)/link(s) for leaving comments, and how do you want it displayed?
Where and how do you want edit and delete links displayed? (since you can delete any comment, or edit your own, and others can edit or delete their own)
If someone puts a title on their comment, what should happen?

What do you want as rating stars? I can make them look like and do a lot of things.

I think so. But in case it'll not look like I want, I can do fine adjustments in code myself. Don't have enough mastery of (X)HTML/CSS to make whole template, tough.

Do you want to show what date and time the comments have been posted? If so, where do you want to show it?
Over nickname, 8pt Arial
What do you want to happen if some people have a different size of avatar than other people? Do you want to make all avatars the same size, or do you want to make the text column larger for smaller avatars?
Downscaled to 100px width (don't touch height in case if someone has panoramic avatar)
What do you want to happen if someone doesn't have an avatar? Do you want to have the comment text take up the whole space?
Instead of avatar I want this. Sorry, forgotten to upload.
Do you want to label author comments and user comments? How?
If "Mark as author comment" checkbox is selected, I want to show the comment before all other - pretty much as in current layout.
Where do you want the button(s)/link(s) for leaving comments, and how do you want it displayed?
Before and after comments. Dunno if it possible to make comment form inside comic page, but if case it is I want form under comment and text link to "popup form" before comments
Where and how do you want edit and delete links displayed? (since you can delete any comment, or edit your own, and others can edit or delete their own)
At the right of username (Example: Darkhog [edit] [delete])
If someone puts a title on their comment, what should happen?
Title should be displayed under one's name. A this point some font things. Dates as I said earlier should be 8pt arial, names 10-12pt Arial and title should be 16pt Times New Roman. Colors I'll leave to you
What do you want as rating stars? I can make them look like and do a lot of things.
Take my avatar, crop it in gimp, so there will be no empty space around and scale to 24x24px


And little question - after you done, can you make dummy comic with layout applied, so I can check if everything is as I wanted before applying to my own?
Geez... I want to continue work on comic itself... It had to be updated on September, and now is almost end of the year...
