the portfolio site... this is a pet-peeve of mine so take it for what it's worth.. but I hate layouts that shift right to left all the time when the scroll bar comes and goes. With your background, you may want to give it a set left margin so the page always lays across the graphic of the woman the same.
Ah, good suggestion. I think I will implement that!
Dues is pretty slick... is the menu hard-coded, or did you do it using show_menu or show_menu2?
The menu on Deus, up at the top... it's hard-coded. There WILL be a dynamic menu on the site, but it will be part of the "content" and not the header.
14th minute - I like that! - dang.. I had a notebook page style theme on my to-do list and you beat me to it. heh. The forums posting on the bottom of the main page, did you write the code to pull those out? I was going to do that for my paintball site and haven't gotten around to it... care to share?
No, I didn't write it; since I'm using the SMF Forums on the site, they have this "SSI" stuff that will allow you to do exactly that. The home page for 14thMinute has four sections: WYSYWIG, News, WYSYWIG, and Code. The code section is this:
echo "<hr><div class='forumview' align='center'>Latest forum posts</div>";
And that handles the latest forum posts. Really, it's that simple.
