I am still at work — trying to get the site to a point where I might invite friends to visit. I have added a few more pages to the structure and decided for now to have a static “أهلا بك” page with a “Notes” page… this one. Rather than going for a two column design I am going for a single column design… for now with a three column footer. I put a search window in the header image… though am not 100% happy with it there. Perhaps I will keep this Theme, perhaps look for another. I just liked my old design and this is the first I found with the rounded corner rectangle fitting within the screen size.
Now a matter of what content to include from the previous site and what to add… and what to include from the site before that I never did get around to update.
I also have my plan to resurrect The Gnome’s Garden. Whether or not to use phpBB3 or not is the question. I am not sure that I will upgrade what is there or just start fresh. I have this idea about going to simplify a phpBB3 board to something more like an original Citadel style board. I still don’t think there is any Cit board that you can run on a remote server.
My plans still are to make it simple for people to transition too and from Facebook to the Gnomestead. I just hope my security measures will take the strain. I think this measure is necessary in order to keep users. Conversely I think I can offer some “security”/”privacy” that Facebook just can’t offer… mind you, that will hinge on personal trust that members would have in me.
