Technically - excellent!
Colour - would not be my first choice.


Note: The background image looks a lot like Harderwijk, with tank tracks in the sand on the military training area. Some 'not-so-pleasant' memories!

 :'(

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Harry, I think the grey one is better suited for a background that adjust for screen size. However, it needs something striking like the green eyes of digiflash.nl (car headlights?). I'm not quite found of the logo although it looks better on the grey background. If you make the test, reducing screen size, you will notice the background slides upward and no longer fills the screen. This does not look particularly good on smaller screens. In my opinion, what makes digiflash outstanding, is that your background harmonizes perfectly well with the environment, no matter what screen size it's on. I believe that to use this technique most effectively, images must melt with the background color.;):)

Thanks Jean.

On pc's with windows vista and xp have that vertically problem on screen. Have noticed this on a 14" screen.  This also happen with de Digiflash theme. Have no idea at the moment how to get this right. All PCs under win 7 have this problem less.

The gray screen is better, and yes you are right there is missing something, but the theme was not 100% ready now. There can change everything before release. :)  But at this way I can see and work better how things are working out . Only I work with a 24 "screen where it look always better.  :)

I really like it, however, the only thing I find is that some of the text is hard to read.

Making games is fun…having people play them is the reward!

lol,Harry! Somehow, I new you would add a beautiful girl somewhere in that background. It is just perfect, the color, the accents on the car, the new logo is excellent. Everything works together quite well I'd say. 

For the background to keep its proportion when sizing to smaller screens, try this css change:

Code

body#main_website
background-size: 100% 100%;


I'm sure you will get to address the menu faded text eventually, as Tisnart pointed out.

Cheers!

Thanks Jean, I was missing something in the whole image and that are most simple small items.
The code is working very well on my small screens, so this I will also set in the blue world theme. Its only the second 100% and remove the word "auto" from that line.

And free for download under v9 addons.
Hope someone can use it, or change it for their need.

Now, that is one I REALLY like - and not simply because of the girl.

Colour choice is terrific!

Keep going Harry - this can only be good for spreading the word about ocPortal.

Technically they all look good.  But I'm not a fan of grey's and dark sites.

This one looks fabulous, Harry!
I am convinced lots of gamers and others for the art works will snatch it off the addon shelves the instant you put it there for download.

Well done!

Harry you work looks great!

I tried both of your themes for ocPortal 9 and I'm using the Wargames one, changed the backround and site name. I love how the background does not move.

I'm new to ocPortal and the whole web building thing. I been out of work for over 10 month now and trying to create a website to hopefully sell some products/services that I have. I just cannot get the Galleries to work like I want! I also do not want the 'e-card' but would like to have someone email me about the product that they are looking at.

I also do not want to use the e-commerce in ocPortal

Which brings me to this;

I went to your site “photography - digiflash.nl” and loved it. Your Galleries work more like I want.

How do I get mine to work that way?

Keep up the great work.
