This thread is to discuss and decide on forum aesthetics.
I've thrown a few things together as placeholders as I configure DT, but none of it is cast in stone. I'll also be working on the look and feel of my blog, and I don't care if the forum looks significantly different from the blog in terms of logo, artwork, favicon, etc.
Is there a way to put a direct link up somewhere on the main forums page or the navigation menu for joining groups? It's not super intuitive right now. I didn't actually notice the menus were dropdowns until sparkle pointed it out to me.
I can probably do that once I find out why custom menu buttons don't show up for people who are in a custom member group. Until I know that's fixable, I don't know how I want to proceed on a couple of other features I'd like to have.
I've reported this to the developer.
If the above problem isn't solvable I'll probably have to scrap the current "ask"/"accept" process (which I like!) and go with a process where the asking is manual - PM or post or something, and the owner of that subforum adds the person manually.
I don't think it's necessarily more work to do it that way, but the board owner won't get notification of a request automatically the way it happens now.
