I really wish I could think of something to start the new site on. (As far as topic goes.)

Enjoy the goody Micro, new stuff's always fun!



gogo

p.s. If you're looking for something to make your forum about, how bout listing the stuff you're great at or love doing/writing? Shorlisting like this is a great way to put down on paper what has a chance of being successful. Good luck

Thanks gogo!

I'll give that a try!

What bothers me is that most of my hobbies are dominated by large forums.

Doesn't matter. What's important is to be honest about what you're going to stick to doing. If you're spending time on games, find an angle and work it.

My own forum is a gaming forum... my angle is that I focus on one game only.

List what you're doing the most every day, this is probably what you have the most expertise in and have highest chance of creating loyal readers from what you put up.

Thanks for the advice gogo!

I've got my mind set on soccer. I am a pretty big fan, and I was able to snag a really good domain in my opinion. I did some research and it seems there are a few relatively large soccer related boards, now some might say that there's too many to be successful. I disagree. If there are that many, then that means I have a chance.

Tell me what you think of the domain: talksoccer.org

I am loving XenForo. The styling system was a little difficult, or maybe that's just because of my vB background. But I am getting the hang of it.

It's a quick study. If you can style for vB, you'll be able to pick up the XenForo system easily

I hope so! I downloaded a theme and it was really discouraging as all the colors were specified in the templates, not the color palette, so I got rid of it as I didn't know what I was doing. Kind of wish I didn't though, now I know what I was doing wrong. Regardless, I like the theme I have now. I can customize it easily. The styling system is actually much easier than vB's. Just seems to take some getting used to.

Try to keep all your edits inside your extra.css template - it makes life so much easier when upgrading

How can I make edits to the forum using that? Do I just call the class and set it's parameters? Does that override the pre-existing templates?

Well obviously extra.css is just for the css edits, which you'd be amazed at the things you can do. Some of the classes will need !important added to the css, but most of them will pull from extra.css instead of from the standard templates.

The added bonus is that your extra.css never gets overwritten during upgrades. On my sites, which both have completely custom styles, upgrading takes about 2 minutes - it takes us longer to upload the files than it does to clean anything up afterwards.

Nice! Are you saying that I shouldn't use the color palette and instead should specify the colors in extra.css?
