    first i would just like to say what a terrific site this is and what a top service

    ive downloaded your featured nightclub template and pretty much customised it to how i want it, however, im changing the top links to what i need them to be, but one of them i need to be two words and its overlapping the next number very slightly. What do i need to do to the code to space out the link tags so i can make everything fit?

    also, can anyone make a phpbb3 theme to complement this?

    You can make your own www.phpbb.com/kb/article/how-to-create-a-new-phpbb3-style/ but not right now, the site has "been attacked through a 0-day-exploit" and is down.
    As for your spacing problem this may work, but then it might make the font to small. Look in you style.css file for font-size: 12px and try 11px or 10px save your file after edit.
    #menu li{
     [COLOR=red]top:50px[/COLOR]; [COLOR=gray]/* change to 35px */[/COLOR]
     list-style-type: none;
    #m01 {left:160px;}
    #m02 {left:305px;}
    #m03 {left:450px;}
    #m04 {left:590px;}
    #m05 {left:730px;}
    #menu a{
     font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif;
    [COLOR=red]font-size: 12px; [/COLOR][COLOR=gray]/* change to 11px or 10px */[/COLOR]
     text-transform: uppercase;
    If that will not do it, then set top:50px to 35px and font-size: 10px save your edit. Now open for edit your index.html file go to the menu section and add a "break" >Home<br>Home< It should look like this (play around with different combos see what works best)

    Just noticed you could also try in the style sheet changing
    #m01 {left:[COLOR=red]160[/COLOR]px;}
    #m02 {left:[COLOR=red]305[/COLOR]px;}
    #m03 {left:[COLOR=red]450[/COLOR]px;}
    #m04 {left:[COLOR=red]590[/COLOR]px;}
    #m05 {left:[COLOR=red]730[/COLOR]px;}
    reduce them and they will shift to the left.

    nice one ill give that a go, thanks for that

    also is there anyway to add extra links at the top, maybe another row underneath them with the numbers in stars continuing??

    and do you know of an uploader script that i can place onto the page that will sync colour wise with the rest of the page so members can upload their dj mixes directly to my host that will display as a download link on the page??

    Stu you might what to read https://freewebsitetemplates.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5694 it will give you an idea what templates are all about. If you wanted to add another row then you would have to rewrite the whole template. Maybe you could use one of the menu selections to send them to another page and have all but one menu selections different. That one different menu would allow to get back home or you could see if a drop down menu with sub-menus would work. You can do this in javascript.

    If you google for an uploader script, I would look in the area of "php" as there are more scripts written in php. Then you will need a another script in php to display them. Of course you will need to learn php. You can always get a better understanding of languages at http://www.w3schools.com/ along with many other tutoral sites out there.
    Hope this helps - keep us informed - we love to see the site.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but Im trying to compile some different code examples given in the devkit, and every example gives me error:too few arguments to function PAD_ScanPadsI tried searching for the problem, but with no luck...

    Igorokk - what place do you think this is?
    Lets see this is a forum about html/css templates and you are compling code in some language (unknown) and using a devkit, again unknown.
    A mystery for now. I suppose you could use Visual Studio and c# as it's less ridged than c++. but then again you could use c++ for the framework with .NET as the wrapper and c# for the body, link it into a database and server up all pages from the back end, throwing in some ajax for good measure.

    I see what you are both saying, but...
    over the years the line between a programming language and a scripting language is getting blurred. Designing a site to run off a database with compiled objects is intense but possible.
    Myself having started out with machine language, then languages which are traditionally compiled to native machine code for the system on which they run and now scripts which are often, but not always, interpreted from the source code or "semi-compiled" to bytecode which is interpreted.
    I... oops I'm doing it again. :eek:
    Like I have said in other posts I'm just a "coder" :D

    We are the 'mods' Web Monkey. :D
    Just a lil' joke I posted in reference to all that in-depth coding jargon.

    (of which I haven't got a clue what they're on about) :confused:

    Yeah, I know you are, I was a mod for over four years once, but had to leave due to family matters.

    Hey, i have a few questions, i would apreciate if anyone could help me out.

    •How long is a round? and when does this one end?

    • if someone appears in my com-list under "people you know" and i didnt add them.... does this mean they added me to their contact list?

    Interesting question.
    I believe this may have derived from a similar question that has been around since time immemorial.

    How long is a piece of string?

    (I feel qualified to answer this; having done numerous in depth studies on the subject of string)

    As for a 'com list', I wouldn't have a clue.
