    Spent the last 20 hours revamping it. Basically started with alot of templates but have almost completly modified them all. Same with the java script in it highly modified from the originals.

    Heads up there are some public front page posts that i dont mind anyone seeing but i dont want comments on them.

    www.venomxt.com

    Things about what iv done with it.

    I like the collapsing front page posts. Still need to figure out how to make only the first one stay open.

    The gallery seems to be working out well. Uses a PHP script to auto update once pictures are placed in the folder.

    The File tab takes you to a login i peiced together. It seems to be work very well and is someone what secure for a client side login.

    The upload Tab took awhile. Its working well but i need to find/make a java script to automatically create a thumbnail from the uploaded files. But that will come later.

    The forum is just me playing with phpbb im liking it but i wish i could play with Vbulletin hehe.

    Well to be honest, I don't see the point behind being able to collapse and expand the posts.

    When you click on home it leads to a 404.

    Other than that I like the simplicity behind teh design, although a bit too dark for me.

    Not too harsh, right? :p

    the expanding and contracting of the posts is more for the fact that i have some personal stuff that i dont like to bombard on people. so it be nice if it were contracted. then if they want to read well they clicked it hehe. Im not sure how much i like it either but it was such a pain in the ass to get right.. that its gona stay for awhile lol. *until i get a archive system set up*

    Thanks for the feed back. keep it coming.

    Well then I think you should make all the posts collapsed by default? They were all opened up for me.

    I like it. Nice job. :)
    I think you should spread out the buttons on the top a little bit more so they are aligned with the banner and the body.

    An easier method you might want to use: Just put up links on the main page. Clicking on the link will take you to a new page with the full content.

    You could even ajax-ify it.
