WarlordsSiteAdmin (New Admin) 9/17/2008 8:35 AM EST : Recruitment Buttons Help

Hello
 We recently purchased our site, and I'm very new to the web site design. However slowly but surely we are getting thigns done. I was curious, I have seen a ton of sites with the Class Buttons - next to the class they are recruiting.

I have spent a few days trying to figure this out, and have failed over and over again. This is my first time posting so I am hoping to get some help.

When I try to edit, go into messing around the things under the recruitment page, it says unable to edit?

Any help would be much appreciated. Warrior - isn't exciting  iwould like an icon for the warrior ya know

Again, any help offered I appreciate.

Thank you!

You didn't say what game you are playing, but here is the thread with links to designs for several different recruitment boxes. If your game isn't in that list, you can just use one as a template to change the image locations and the class names.

Ack i'm sorry..

Everquest 2 are the icons i'm loooking for.

I'm slowly learning, I just learned how to the Enter page, also on the enter page - is there a way to resize the picture, so when you inster the url it doesn't show up in 4 different frames? Just want it to be one big picture, not 4 of the same picture on the screen.

So, now i'm still kicking myself trying to figure out how to make recruitment icons, for EQ2. If anyone could help please? Would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks got it I guess i didn't see the numbers on the bottom more than one page)

I got it to work right - but I can't see the icons, i'm raiding at the moment so i'm trying to read through to see how to enable the pictures, was curious if you could help with this?

I'm not sure if i enabled or disabled something that prevented the pictures to not show next to the class. Thanks .:)

It's really a work in progress, we couldn't wait any longer due to some guild issues, we had to give up our old site, and move quickly and it was really hard to get another / new site up and running... and guild rebuilding lol so we had to get a site up fast, so we just opened it to our memebers, and having to do maint work while guild site is in progress. Not ideal. But it happens sadly. Our old site it pretty much did everything - we didn't have a lot of room for us to add themes etc but everything we did do we lost sadly.

So it's a work in progress, and yeah i got the design stuff quickly it became my job - so i'm trying to learn as much possible. and for being computer stupid its very over whelming.. but we shall see how it turns out

once again thanks for all the help so far  VERY thankful you guys know what you are doing. heh

Wow, I totally messed up the CSS for that... I left out the complete URL to the images in that post... LOL it worked fine on my computer o.O

Anyway, I updated the post... basically I added the orange text into the CSS, so it went from:
.berserker {color: #ffffff; background: url(eq2berserker.jpg) no-repeat; height:20px; padding-left:26px; }
to
.berserker {color: #ffffff; background: url(http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa236/Mottie1/testsite/icons/eq2berserker.jpg) no-repeat; height:20px; padding-left:26px; }
Sorry about that... my fault entirely.
