TAMAKO Template Layout Request

Postby Rein Akira » July 20th, 2010, 2:04 am

Hello,

For weeks I have been wanting to make a costomized layout for my comic TAMAKO. And for weeks I have tried to figure out the HTML coding system, but to no avail. I have yet to even make a dent in what I would like to do with the site. Therefore, I was wondering if someone would not mind helping me in my little speed bump.

I have the layout already planned. Here are some images that portray how I would like the site to look:

Home Page:
Image

Comic Page:
Image

Archive Page:

I have already created the images needed for the background, First, Prev, Next, and Latest buttons, the banner, and the rating images (however, with the rating images, I do not know how you would need them i.e. individually or in a line as they are shown in the picture. I will adjust to fit the needed way.). Here are their links:

Background:

Next Button:

Previous Button:

First Button:

Latest Button:

Rating Ghost Image (I do not really like the white box around the ghost, but if there is no way to remove it then it is fine.):

Banner:

I will give additional information that is needed during the process and answer any question that might pop up. I will help as much as I can to make it as painless as possible, so please help me, I would be very grateful!

(P.S., Sorry for the formality... it just seemed the way to ask for a favor, lol...)

EDIT: Resized (smaller) Images:

Previous Button:

Latest Button:

You can remove the white box around the ghost by making it transparent. JPG does not support transparency, but GIF and PNG do. I can make the image for you, but first I have concerns:
Are you sure about the relative sizes of everything? If I use the rate and menu buttons you give, everything will be very large, and will not look like the layout you give. There are of course ways to resize them in the layout, but they'll look worse than if you just give the final sizes from the start. The smaller images will make the page load faster, too.
All the text in the menu and the "rate this comic" and "average rating" text will also need to be images, if you want those specific fonts, as those are not standard fonts. However, if the fonts are not important, I can use standard fonts without needing images. What's your choice?
How do you want the layout positioned in the window when it's larger than your mock-ups? Centered?

I don't think I have time to do it for you this month, but I think the above should help out anyone else who'd like to try.

I can resize the images, that's no problem at all. The font really isn't important, I just started typing with whatever I had last used, lol. And yes, I would like the layout centered.

Oh! And time isn't a problem... I'm in no rush to get anything, lol... I honestly wasn't even expecting a reply so soon... If someone else doesn't offer, whenever you have time is fine! ^.^ I'll put up the resized images ASAP!
