Kevin, the website looks great!!!!
I tried to do some of that stuff (smilies) for Dave a few years ago, but I'm not as smart as you are!!!

A few suggestions:
Add Davez phone number to the Bogger forum banner--it would make things easier for people to order...I know I was always searching for his number to call/order before I had him on speed dial!

I would love to draw up some custom Toyota/truck/4Runner smilies...what is the max pixel size you'd want to see? It looks like most are ~24 pixels tall or less...what would you want for max width? PM me your email address, and I'll start sending some. I'd love to see the Pirate4x4.com :flipoff2: and :beer: smilies added! :lol:




Again--things look absolutly awesome---great job!!!

Thanks dude :good:

Dave asked me to put the number up on the forum header, just haven't done it yet... but definetely a must until the store is up. The size of all the smilies recently added is what we'll be using; not sure the exactly dimensions off hand. I'm slowly replacing all of them to match the same style and be animated... i'm close :D

I would have added some like that, but this forum is a business so I have to keep it somewhat professional. If it was the type of environment like pirate4x4 whose main purpose is advertisements and discussion, i'd definetely add them.

Sorry, don't see those being added anytime soon here.

Alot of do-it-yourself'rs might find it helpful if there were a Fabrication category on the site. Where we could find things like bushings, brackets, tabs & more.

I know it would help me with my wishlist :)

I noticed that images posted using BBcode get cut off depending on the browser size used. On my cell phone I can't see full pictures because of this. And on my desktop, a picture I just posted a larger image and the right side was cut off. It is larger then I normally post. Is there a way to make posts with larger images, scale to the right like on Vbulletin and Invisionboard?

I'm still sorting out the details of the store, but we will have something like that. For now, i'm adding "parts" sub-categories. For an example, go to steering > parts.

I can replicate the problem in both environments; i'm looking into it.

Thanks.

Special thanks to MikeC, Splasher, Dez, MT4Runner, and RCKYOTA for all your help during the last few months of upgrades, changes, and additions to the site.

As promised for helping out, PM me your next order and I will provide a very decent discount or 1 year elite membership... personally paid for out of my pocket.

Thanks again; it was very helpful!
