Thank You for choosing the Skyblue Theme!

I plan on trying to visit anyone who is using the theme I made. I was kinda worried that no one would use it.

Great theme! It's my favourite…and if I were to make another comic - only if I were to fall on my head and go insane - I would surely use it again for my other comic on the DD. :P

Hope more people make more themes. Five different background options (None, Mallard blue/red, Sky blue and brute) means some comics lose a feeling of individuality

Not to mention a modest amount of time and effort.

If you're proficient at making a simple web page with HTML, it's not very hard at all to make a DD template. you just need to know the tags to insert in your page. Volte6 lists those here:

Ok. On somone's advice I've taken a tutorial on this stuff, so now I'm not quite so addlebrained.

If I draw up a border for a theme, could somone explain how to translate it into html?

most of the templates I make are what some call 9 box tables
for example your using the Brute Theme.
The box that your comic sits in is made up of 9 table cells.
the corner cells of the table have images placed in them to make the rounded looks. All the other cells have back ground images so that they stretch nice.

here is what the code would look like.
<table width="600" height="99" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td width="55" height="40"><img src="gfx/top_left_image.gif" width="55" height="40"></td>
<td width="490" background="gfx/top_main.gif">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="55"><img src="gfx/top_right_main.gif" width="55" height="40"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="19" background="gfx/left_main.gif">&nbsp;</td>
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<div align="center">
<?php showComic($QUACT_TEMPLATE); ?>
</div></td>
<td background="gfx/right_main.gif">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="40"><img src="gfx/bt_left_main.gif" width="55" height="40"></td>
<td background="gfx/bt_main.gif">&nbsp;</td>
<td><img src="gfx/bt_right_main.gif" width="55" height="40"></td>
</tr>
</table>


If you past that table into an editor like dreamweaver the images will be broken but you get the idea.
The part that takes the longest is clipping up a single image into 9 images that will piece together into a table.

Or suggest a style of theme you would like to see. Maybe someone can hook you up.

aha I see!

I'm more interested in learning to do it myself than I am interested in seeing a specific template.

Thankyou very much! I'll prolly have more questions before long!
