DIYC is in the middle of an Extreme Makeover!!!

We have the start of a Home Page (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com) that is going to centralize and organize all the different DIYC resources we have developed with all your help over the past 9 months. This is just the beginning and we are looking for your input about it. Tell us what you like or dislike. Give us suggestions of what you want to see on the home page. Got some design ideas or coding skills, let us know. If you want to partake tell us. A great way to help us out and show off your talent is to get involved with the DIYC logo contest (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2364)

A thanks goes to Josh Cook, aka JOSH. He single handedly designed what you are about to see. You can view the Home Page (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com) by clicking Here (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com)

I would Consider adding some text to the center of that box welcoming people to our new "home" and that the site is being updated!

Frank, i do have a version with text and a few images. But as i was saying last night in chat, it has issues in firefox. It works great in IE, but firefox throws things to the side. I hope to fix this today, but i not sure how much time i will have to work on it.

The version can be seen here, www.keokukfbc.org/DIYC/index.html If anyone feels that they can help fix the issue with Div tags, download the files, send them back to me at j.cook.102@gmail.com or to Brian, and we can see how they perform in IE and Firefox.

Unfortunately Firefox, while not a majority...is definitely not a minority either.

exactly, but i never like to release something unfinished Unlike KC :P

I will work on it today and see what i can come up with. On my paintball site, i did layers and such, and it works great in firefox and internet explorer... I will see about stealing the code, or getting ahold of the lady who helped me (this may be this evening before this happends as she is in taiwan lol)

Firefox ( and Safari for that matter ) don't like absolute positioned divs inside tables. Simply take your 3 "layer" divs out of the table and put them after the closing </table> tag and then go add the left postion for the table to the left css styles of the three layers.

Alternatively, take the <table> out and replace it with a div which *can* be positioned and can accept nested positioned divs.

Actually rumour has it (OK I chatted with KC a couple of days ago in the chat) that he is working on the final release for V2 at the moment.

Hi All,

After the logo contest has been run & won ..

have you thought about producing some bumper stickers with the logo.

I'd buy 1.
