I am in need of help at the theme site dedicated to ocportal. I know it also offers themes for other scripts as that is also to help get more trafic and more exposer of ocportal.

I know it does not use the ocportal forum and there are reasons why and I will post those in another topic after this one is posted.

Any way I am working on 2 themes at the moment but not getting very far as I think I am making them to complex and getting stuck, 2 threads here about those 2 themes, I did get some help but am still stuck.

I know that there are at least 3 other members on here that are good at making themes, better then me, Joe, soccerdad, igdesign (I think thats correct).

Any way I would love to help and any one that helps can get a free link to his or her site.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Oh I just realized I forgot about fletch he makes some cool themes too.
I know that one of my friends even wanted ocportal do to what fletch's site looked like. She wanted a site exactly like that. Hmm maybe that gives me an idea I could make a them based on fletch's theme as long as he is not against the idea. :)

You give me too much credit, Amy!

My site is basically the 'default' tweaked in different areas to please me aesthetically.

You are free to use any of my 'ideas'. I'd view it as a compliment.

The negative side of modding is, of course, my reluctance to upgrade to version 4. Especially if it means having to go through the headache of substituting or replacing the various graphics I currently use. I'm sure the core will work fine, but I really don't want to spend hours rebuilding the site to look like it does now.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hey Ami! I'll have some more free time coming up very shortly, so I'll be able to start helping out further.

Fletch: send me a PM if you'd like to work together to get your site migrated. (it would be a chance for me to learn more while we're at it). What we can do is make a mirror copy of your OCP3 site on my server and work there to get it migrated and it won't affect your production site. Just a thought…

Thanks for the spelling correction.

Hey SD,

Nice to know there are good and helpful people still around.

I would take up your offer without a moments hesitation (might still do) if I hadn't already started another domain and hosting package - just to assist me in porting over my 3.2.10 site into a version 4.

Your suggestion is precisely how I'd planned to do it, so it is reassuring that somebody as talented as yourself is thinking along the same lines.

I'll SHOUT for help if I get myself bogged down. Equally, I'll document the switch-over if all goes well, just in case somebody else is feeling a bit 'fragile' about it.

Great Fletch, best of luck, and as mentioned, please do not hesitate to let me/us know if we can help in anyway. I consider every OCP event to be a learning experience!  :thumbs:

what happened to the site?  oc4themes.org?  I get nothing.

Darn shame really, I was really looking forward to learning from those that had gone before me.

If I can help bringing that back in anyway let me know.  I got unlimited bandwidth, storage, domains hosting plan.  Shared but still it's fairly sweet  :cool:

Hosting is not an issue. I have to many web hosts at the moment.
Time is one thing I am in need of. Thank you for the kind words I will see what I can do.

I honestly feel a bit ashamed of my actions on this. I had no idea how many people were using the site. It is good to know as I was starting to feel it may have died.

I cannot help with actually themeing, but if you need a good advertising/moderator/etc., let me know. I think the site does have potential.
