HELP: Forum Index Page Design + Header And Footer
#1
Hi Naija coders,

I'm very green in programming, infact i'm still a noob lacking experience. But thanks to mybb i'm now learning php basic after a fringe study of html and css. So i decided to build my first forum.
I'm just in love with "how fun editing mybb" is. Infact i can do design the forum to suit my taste, but unfortunately i don't have it's difficult even to discover my taste forum design.

So please coders, i need your help on the best possible way to design the forum different from what Nigerians do. I know i'm using a common theme but i love it. I'll customise to make it great and lovely.

What I need now are: index page, Header and footer design.

Please help whether with code or with tip, both are highly Welcome.
Here is the forum url : http://fundeal.22web.org
To front page pls @deelino @dealwap
Thanks in advance for your help.

Naija words green theme is just perfect u can begin wit dat bt it dosent have 30% of mybb features... That is that for that...
Anyway the things you are looking for are the hardest things in web development(personal experience).. Bt i wouuld advice u to learn css very well..(general advice)

Header(my opinion and advice)

A header should be very simple that it dosent span too many items but simple enough to be too descriptive(that is the user can get to the most important part of your website with few clicks)..

Index(landing page)

This should contain too many items either and should neva be more than two colors used...

Footer
Like i said all mybb(nigeria made only) dont contain 30% of mybb features you can add those to ur footer(i mean their links..like calender,member list etc).. Adding a language selector or a theme selector would be nice...
Thanks...

Creating mybb forums is very easy especially when you look through all their core files your understanding becomes wide.

Anyway i can see that you are using gomobile for your forum but i dont advice anyone to use gomobile unless you are a mybb developer

Here are the reasons you sould not use gomobile:
1. Gomobile is no longer mainted by the owner
2. It doesnt contain all of mybb new templates (e.g the latest version of mybb may have contain 300 templates but because gomobile was created a long time ago and was not updated since then you would find 200 templates so that means you miss out on the features the remaining 100 templates provide. This is just and example)
3. Some css are written wrongly in gomobile which actually affect functionality the of the forum e.g time stamp for quoted post)
4. Gomobile does not contain all of mybb newer tags / changes.
5. Their are still many more reasons but i will stop here.

So thats why i advice u not to use any gomobile theme i once made that mistake but never again, i would advice you to look for a newer / current theme on the mybb mods site http://community.mybb.com/mods.php then make it mobile friendly by using css. Or wait for mybb 1.9 they say its going to be mobile friendly.

Whatever you deside is up to u. I have said my own. But one thing is sure and certain and that is if you continue to use gomobile you will keep facing problems from time to time on you forum your forum may not be at peace Smile because different bugs would keep poping up every now and then.
And theirfore you need to be and advanced mybb user to fix it.

Anyway i wish you good luck. Dont forget to try some of the plugins i created for mybb, check link bellow.

The themes on the mybb mods site are absolutely free. Aldo some are not mobile responsive. But they have great themes, especially themes created by @iAndrew

I use to have a mybb forum but i closed it down seems i already know everything about mybb so i moved to pure php site development, but i would go back to mybb when they release mybb v1.9 Big Grin

Enjoy. And also if you need any help on mybb dont hesitate to ask me.
