I've got nothing to discuss really. I like CSS best and I spent a lot of time and effort optimizing and styling my website into the smallest of details.

My website is actually based on the theme the former owner used with a gradient orange color. The colors of orange (#FF5100) go together very well with some blue accents found on my website and white text. The darker, almost brownish text color I use in common text on the forum makes it more readable.

The orange theme I made has set an example for the webshop and chatbox I made, both HTML based.

Here are a couple of screenshots for you as an example:

- Index page:

In the topics:

- Chatbox:

- Webshop:

I'm using a couple of JS for security reasons and blocking some of the data in the topics from guest view. Even with Java disabled, one can still not get around it easily.

- Prevent topic viewing notification: http://prntscr.com/684ofi
- Registering is possible from 3 countries only which citizens most likely be speaking Dutch:
- The Netherlands
- Belgium
- Luxemburg
I'm seeking for as much Dutch related audience as possible.

I do love the color scheme and one thing I would recommend is the new topic buttons and buttons next to it that are white with red text I would recommend doing custom buttons if you have the time and maybe use a color like #5E5240 or maybe even #ABA090 Also I love the colors you choose for the background and the toolbar but I did notice the toolbar is a tad busy but i'm not sure if maybe clear out the social icons and move things on the toolbar over a tad. Just some tips but I think your site looks really nice Smile

If you want to try the look without the share buttons you could always do something like this. Make sure to do !imporant so it overrides the original CSS.


 #fa_share {
    display: none !important;

What do I do? Logos, Websites, Custom Graphics, Branding, mockups, and more.

Yeah, they're ugly little monsters those topic buttons, aren't they? I know Razz They came with the phpBB3 ProSilver theme I had chosen when I got started. I asked them to be translated @ FM. I should have asked for stylish buttons instead, but I'll do that later on.

Yeah, the toolbar seems to be quite busy because of that Google Translate stuff I've been working on from within the toolbar. I know about (hiding) the share buttons and I may just do that. I've hidden 1 already: the e-mail the founder button.

Yes, I need to design new buttons for this forum as well but if you want I could design some buttons for you and you can choose to use them or not your decision. Just to see how they look and if you want some changes done I can do that but just give me an idea of what kind of buttons you would want.

I'm not sure about the button overhaul yet. You got a portfolio to show me? I wanna make sure, always looking for the best of the best. There are so many out there doing 'GFX' as they say with due respect though, but some are just bullocks.
