Changes For 2008!

12

In my heightened state of excitement for the coming 2008 season, I thought it would be good to give F1B a little aesthetic surgery or face lift to celebrate the new season. This prompted me to launch into CSS and php code work, which of course I know nothing about, and to bore you to tears with a generic theme whilst I muddle around with the new look. This I will most likely do with a punishing lack of urgency but not to fear, the new look should take F1B to a higher level.

I appreciate your patience during our digital construction. before you get angry and take up arms; Grace had nothing to do with this. She will be as surprised as anyone about my cocking up a perfectly good web site.

Only thing i don’t like about this “revolution” business at the moment is the header/logo. It’s not pretty enough to compliment my comments NC. However I know you have it in you to make the requisite changes to deserve my patronage. Do not make me adopt a scowl to fit in.

LOL. You are right Paul. For some reason I’m not smart enough to make that page tab a link. I am working on that because it is cumbersome. I really wanted a layout that was more readable and magazine-style. Revolution, while you have to pay for it, is probably the best one out there so far. So I bit on it. Let’s face it; you’re all worth it! ;) Thanks Podium. I like this layout a lot. I will spend the next few days tweaking and arranging to make it better and more personal. Don’t be shocked if there are… Read more »

Ok, one little suggestion….. Can you make the “Honda” 8 ball do a shake, shake, shake…. a little animated gif action?

That’s a good idea, John. I am working on learning how to make animated GIF’s for the starting lights at the top. I want them to actually work. I’ll work on the 8-ball as well.

thx Eddie. Its been a couple very late evenings & I’m way over my head but so far, I’m very pleased with it. Hopefully it will be more intuitive and easier for all of you to participate.

I really like the new look, adds a new level to it, also looks more professional and colourful, good work!

Thx Frantic. I even fixed the forum link so it goes directly to it instead of two pages. How about that for a complete novice. :)

Just tweaking the site now. Trying some animated GIF stuff and category stuff. Thanks for everyone hanging in there with me on this.
