But I think I'm getting the gist of it finally, and I've been writing notes to try and keep it straight.
(SOOOO funny -- I used to be able to understand complicated Calculus formulas in high school, but I can't understand how to set up Forum Categories!)(*emphasis on USED TO!!*)
Well, in my defense (as much as anyone might want to listen to it...), the site didn't really do a great job explaining any instructions or what the words they used actually symbolized! :-P
But after doing it WRONG several times, I think I am clear on what "Categories" actually means to them!! LOL
I have MOST of the Categories and Boards set up now (I think!), so I'm going to post a screenshot to show you what I've created.
BUT....BEFORE I DO.....I want to repeat something I put into a comment the other day --- I'm definitely NOT personally connected to anything about what I'm creating, naming, picking, etc! So if there's anyone with better ideas of names or anything, I WELCOME that -- let us all know, and if everyone wants something changed, I'll happily change it!!!!
This isn't "MINE" for "ME".....this is for ALL of US, I'm just doing the put-together of it. So anything, ANYTHING that one of you might really want to change or add, just let me know (here or in an email) -- I'm open to any and ALL suggestions!!!!
PLEASE keep that in mind when you look at the forum picture, and if anyone has an opinion about anything, I want to hear it! :-)
Here it is! (I can't seem to get it any bigger! :-P Just use the "Control" key and either the "Page Up" key or scroll-up on your mouse to bring it closer) (STUPID Blogger!).....
Just a little history on THIS style....I GAVE UP on the other "Free Forum" website with the confusing CSS-thing, and used this site -- I could only pick a preset style/frame, with all the colors and fonts already picked out and unchangeable. All I could do is upload my "Logo", which is the picture you see on top. I think I can also upload "Logos" for each category, if I wanted to, but that's the extent of the CHANGES that can be made on this site. THANK GOD!!!!! That CSS was killing me! :-P LOL
I DO wish I could change the size of the forum title, which is in tiny blue words just to the right of the logo on top. Maybe sometime I'll make a Logo with the title in it.....maybe...! LOL
So after looking at the general "LOOK", check out the boards I have, and let me know if I missed anything. Or maybe it's too many....??? I DO still need to add a board for Seasonal Decorating, I think -- Christmas, Fall, Spring, Summer -- and I could put them under the "Decorating" category, OR, I could put them in their own category ("Seasonal Decorating").....
*SIGH!* SOOOO many decisions....!!!!
Anyway, that's where I'm at after tonight! I'd LOVE to hear any thoughts/opinions/ideas....!!
Now I'm off to ~VEG-OUT~ for an hour before I try and fall asleep! I'll be checking back in the morning!!! :-D
