I really like the stylesheet and the board layout.

Indeed, its coming together quite nicely... My only sugguestion is to work on a background colour that goes with the banner image, since the image has a green hint to it like the forums, the background sould match imo.

Agreed, I matched the banner, it does look tigher.

My 2¢ to tighten even more:

What if you make the "light" rows in the forums match the light areas of the logo, then the "dark" rows match the dark green (you'd then have to change some of the link colors)...

Add the "Rules" and "Photo Galleries" links to the nav bar and stick something else in that white space...

Center the bottom banner...

And if you can, put Forum Stats to the left of Who's Online...

That just my opinion, I could be wrong wink

Where do I add the current links to the nav bar? That seems like a great idea!

Make a new portal island, and just insert html based links into it, then assign it via the portal settings.

Yeah, I can see how I could do that but what I am not seeing is where I can then insert it into the Nav Bar. ?????

Right now I added it into the right column, which is still better than what I had, but the Nav Bar insertion sure seems like the best way to go.

You'd have to edit \templates\default\header.tpl

On or near Line 137 find:
Code
<a href="{$config.BASE_URL}/ubbthreads.php{$var_start}ubb{$var_eq}faq">{$lang.FAQ_TEXT}</a>

Replace with:
Code
<a href="{$config.BASE_URL}/ubbthreads.php{$var_start}ubb{$var_eq}faq">{$lang.FAQ_TEXT}</a> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
<a href="http://www.westcoastwine.net/intro.htm">Rules of Usage</a> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
<a href="http://www.westcoastwine.net/photo/" target="_blank">Photo Galleries</a> 

Hopefully it'll fit. If not, change "Rules of Usage" to "Rules" or something...
