    I've briefed Tony and we are going ahead with "the plan". Basically I am going to tidy up the guides a bit, might chuck a new design in, although I'm not good at creating templates quickly :(.

    However there is a guide coming! Will explain more nearer the time, but I have 2 extra ideas which will come with this guide format. If it works there will be more guides and regular content.

    Probably going to need some help from you guys, but in the mean time I am preparing everything so be ready :)

    So don't do a new design then? Just stick up a wordpress install and doubtless one of our more clever coding monkeys can "green" it for you with minimal fuss?

    Go with the Thesis template, its the most configurable, SEO friendly and its pretty much completely the design is pretty much completely controlled from from a single css file.

    There is a small charge for thesis, not much though. Worth it imo just for the hassle it saves.

    Use it on my blogs T. Been fucking around with it since it started but never read a manual if that makes sense? Why, what's up?

    Personally I use Arras theme. It allows you to stick in screenshots, etc (see MYstIC G / v4). You can clone themes quite easily and just adjust the CSS very simply. The entire style code for mine for example is:
    Code:
    /*
    Theme Name:     MYstIC G.com
    Description:    MYstIC G.com traditional orange excess!
    Author:         MYstIC G
    Template:       arras-theme
    */
    
    @import url("../arras-theme/style.css");
    
    /* This CSS file is created for you to create or override any of the existing CSS styles used in this theme */
    
    #header {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #FF8C00;
    border-bottom:5px solid #383332;
    padding:0;
    }
    
    .blog-description {
    color:#FFFFFF;
    display:block;
    font-family:'Segoe UI',Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:11px;
    font-weight:700;
    line-height:1em;
    margin:0;
    padding:3px 0 0;
    text-transform:uppercase;
    }
    Effectively base theme + tweaks. Should be very simple to do.

    The one thing I would advise is .htaccess for the admin section and not using the as standard database prefix of wp_ but for example aihaiahdisahda_wp_ as this generally fucks up a lot of the scripts that come along causing problems.

    MYstIC_G ok if I pick your brains, probably on a daily basis about wordpress? I know CSS very well but a newbie to wordpress. I'm looking at some plugins at the mo and scribbing some ideas down on paper still.

    The game I am guiding is COD Black Ops, but with 2 extra unique features which I'll message you about, which should launch the site and kickstart the guides once and for all :).

    One thing on my hit list is the need to find someone who is good with graphics (borg aka jace has offered to help but is limited with time).
