Post Getting to the Fraternity site from the forums?
Is there any link from the forums through to the fraternityofshadows.com site itself?

I think it would be a good addition even though the forums URL incorporates the site URL.

Nope. It's something I've been wanting for a while. Haven't had time to look into it.

we mean the other way 'round. some people find the cafe through a google search, and don't realize there's all the goodies on the main site. There are several links from fraternityofshadows.com to fraternityofshadows.com/forum, but none from fraternityofshadows.com/forum to fraternityofshadows.com outside of posts like this one.

It likely requires some hacking of the phpbb skins to get what we want. I don't like doing that. It's a big pain and fraught with danger. I'll look for another way.

Generally you can request it on the home site that hosts it.... So for example if i ever need help on Proboards you go to proboards and request it in a section they have. I'm sure there's something of a similiar sort here.....


Also isn't there a link at the top of the page right now? Nope it looks like it would lead there but it doesn't.... I'm surprised you don't use a better resolution picture for that one anyways. It looks kinda fuzzy?

yeah, I can pursue it with the phpbb support forums or our hosting service, or dig into the code myself and figure it out. I just haven't taken the time to do any of those.

Who has time anymore? Between checking endless dead crypt topics here, and planning real life campaigns and work on top of that? No, we don't have time. xD

OK... style hacking it is... :)

Kludgey, but it seems to have worked. (link is up top, under or beside the logo).

Report any issues here.

Psalm 82:55

Gonzoron you are brilliant
In lots of lovely ways.
You've pwned the heathen spam bots
And linked to the front page.

When lamentations reached you
In mournfulness and woe
You brought to us the rows and
Columns of table code.

For this and other largesse
We all owe you a price,
We're working on the cookies
And human sacrifice.


~~ A-a-a-amen...

For what doth it profit Gonzoron to gain the entire Ravenloft Collection, only to lose his soul?

Mark 8:36

(Original qoute: What would it profit a man to gain the whole world, only to lose his soul?)

:D I think that is ravenlofty no?

As long as that darn dicepouch and the pins remain elusive, I don't have to worry about my soul. :)

Click on the page, and tell me that it's lovely!
I'll click on the page and say the same thing to you.
The forum thanks its favored son: happy mod Gonzoron,
He's coding away...

Click on the page, and let the Horror shake you.
I'll click on the page and then we'll both go loopy:
Madness will oft'-en attend Ravenloft
As its nobles and ladies and peasants go crazy and rave
Through the demiplaaane!

[Turns away from audience and bows solemnly.]
