Ok, another hack from me. This is very small, but it looks great.

What does it do?
Puts a BG graphic for each forum description/name table in Ultimate.cgi.

Can I see it in action?
Sure you can, but it isn't my site. Just go here .

Where can I get it?
Right here

If you are not sure what this hack does, just go to the demo site I gave you. It looks really nice.

yeah, this hack was done within 2 1/2 minutes and, well, i would appreciate any comments concerning the new layout of my board, so, give it a try... >
technoforum.de > technoforum.de > forum (or klick on the black 'man' standing there) - it's amazing what you can do with this hack. imagine of very little s/w-yte gif-anims (loFi style) you might use. for example. oooooh... wonderfull!

maybe not, but maybe it was too, u gotta understand that it's pretty discouraging thou.

i've seen my (my exact) rounded table graphics on other forums, my mouseover, i even saw a forum which had used my customized cp images too customize his cp. it even said OML Boards when I looked.

it really is frustrating, but at least mine uses the control panel. smile

Dude, I had no idea. I had never seen your forums. I had never seen a hack like this anywhere else.

I didn't want to use the cp, I hate configuration. I should of used a -e statement, no?

Maybe this could be intergrated with
UBB Hypercells
To look like this
When I get some time I might try to do this myself or make a demo for you that don't understand...

it's ok, i don't mind sharing. it's when i get really ripped off (like when i didn't get credit for my translator for code buttons. smile ) that i get mad.

i had the dd imageover code working, but if u look at my forums, the javascript ALONE makes the code unable too appear in notpad because of size.

Thanks Dawg. I seriously never saw your forums. If I had, I would have asked permission to write it or asked if you had a installation sheet.

Nice forums, by the way. Very unique.

Your problem roots from your settings. Somewhere you have a bgcolor on your tables. My hack is displaying correctly. The problem is that the table that displays the forum name, and decription (which is right on top of the table you added the bg image to) has a background color of #000000 (black). The table with the bg color is overlapping the table with the image, but it isn't as wide as the table with the image, so it just displays the corners of the image. All you have to do is take out the the bg color of the table.

Hey Scud Muffin I am not by any means taking away from your good work...... So with that in mind could you please find some way to do as The Prohacker said with the hyper cells? I have hyper cells on my board and would love for the pic(s) to glow too. Thanks again.

Scud, when I did what you told me to do that just screwed over all the colours... why isn't it working just like the Technoforum? I would really appreciate some help if anyone else knows what's wrong, as this would look great on my forum

No, I am saying that in your actual script, you need to take out the "bgcolor=...." on the table that holds the forum name and description. I have it working great on 5.47d, I am not sure why your code is different.

That is a fine forum Scud. I really like this hack. I suppose there is a way to expand it over all of the areas?

Yes, there is a way to add it to any table. Unfortunately, I have been really busy, so I can not make this hack just yet. Maybe next week?
