The only problem in which I wish I could get past in the site map is have an access level check so only items accessible for members and under displayed for those at member level, associate and under be displayed for associate level, etc.  If I can't figure out how to do that, I at least wish that the “You are not appropriate level to access this page” message would be pulled in using my CSS and under my site banner instead of that fugly plain white screen.  /laughs and ducks from Aaron.

Hey gang... Looking for some additional feedback.  The guild voted on changing the alt color from green to blue (although all the treehugging druids kept it at a close vote with keeping the green only one vote behind - thankfully we used GuildPortals electronic voting system so I don't have to deal with a chad scandal)

I've also been playing around with some javascript stuff including pulldown menus.  I'm hoping I can sneak into Aaron's Lair and figure out a way to limit what is viewed by security level but I haven't found where he has hidden his Magical Chest of Security Controls yet.  Hopefully I can beat him into submission so he shares this ability soon.. heh /ducks from Aaron.

At any rate, if you click on an item and it gives you that security message you know you clicked on an associate/member only type thing.

I still have a few things to do before actual spotlight submission..  Just wanted to get some feedback from my fellow admins...

Thanks in advance for any critique! /bows humbly and scuttles off to hide in a corner of Aaron's Lair to try and see where he hides that damn chest!

Love the drop-list menus, Kit; great job! Wish there was a mirrored version of the previous color scheme so I could compare and see which colors I preferred.

The original one was based on this theme that Aaron built for the Guild Portal admins website, I think it's called neon green in the themes list.  Basically all of the content boxes were the same as they are here.  The differences between here and the old Torva site was I used the same background and headers (minus the javascript stuff I just added) and the crests were green where they are blue now.

Changing to a blue scheme, I had to dig into the CSS and try to figure out what settings went to which things and change out all the color codes so they would work with blue.  I think I need to start charging the guild for all the time I put into the site... rofl

Oh, as for the menus... I kinda cheated..  I used a handy program I picked up from Sothink called DHTMLMenu to create the javascript.

Brilliant - I'll probably steal them myself (for my personal site, if not also my guild site).

I'm pretty much the developer/admin for our site, and although I was a computer programmer a LOOOOOONG time ago (think COBOL) I know next to nothing of HTML/SHTML/XML/SXL. (Maybe even LESS than next to nothing!)  So our site is completely done using the GP tools, other than adding our own background images and box borders.  Even so, I think within that framework that I've made it a pretty decent site.  I'd appreciate any feedback/suggestions you might have.

Hey there you... get yer own thread!

Your site's more than worthy of it... even if just for that adorable puppy

No, seriously, very nice site. Especially like your twinkly sword medals and your info layout.. is that custom or the categorized links? Looks good

:*) <VERY sheepish grin>  Rhomany, yes, I apologize for not posting separately, I realized last night that I should have done so.  I've already sent Wiltan a PM to ask him to move my post to a different thread!

Thanks for taking a look though... Yes, the links section is the categorized links, and I love that new capability, it sure helps, as we have quite a few links. 

The sword medals I like, but I was trying to add one for each realm rank, so that for example, a RR3 would have 3 little twirling swords, but only one will show up, even if I have a separate image with a different name and description.  Not sure why that is, going to see if I can figure it out this weekend.  I'd also like to have a section next to the roster that displays the medals and their info, but am still working on that, too.   

Thanks for the comment on my puppy, he IS a pretty cute little guy....

P.S.  Wiltan or any other Spotlight Admin, please, if you can, move my posts to a separate thread, sorry about the inadvertent hijacking!

Spotlight admins are just guild webmasters like all of us.  The only one that might be able to move a thread is Aaron or Sandy.  But thanks for bringing new activity back to my thread..   While ya all are checking out Matennon's site for Clan Drae'Nei, take a moment to check out the Torva Spiritus site as well and give me feedback on what yall think...
