Sidebars

October 31, 2011 at 2:10am

I was looking over at ]Runboard Extra and saw Moosemans ]Sidebar in CSS - basics topic. As I was looking at the code I realized that the codes given were unlikely to produce the layout that the average user would be looking for.

So I started working on a basic sidebar layout in CSS. Well, one thing led to another and the next thing you know I had finished creating not 1, not 2 but 7 different sidebar layouts!!!

01. ]Fixed Width basic

02. ]Offset Basic

03. ]Fixed Width Right basic

04. ]Left with Banner/Logo on top

05. ]Right with Banner/Logo on top

06. ]Left sidebar, flex width message board, banner at top

07. ]Right sidebar, flex width message board, banner at top

I can think of two additional layout options off the top of my head but since I like the number 7 I decided to stop there... I did create screen shots of each of the layouts though to make it easier for a user to decide what will work best for their own Runboard message board community.

Learning how much Thor has done for us

September 14, 2011 at 6:00pm

I started working on a website for my church last month. I only get a few minutes a week for this but one thing I noticed was just how different it is when working on a website from scratch and working on a Runboard. With Runboard I don't have to worry about doc types or meta tags because Runboard takes care of that for me. I still have to do the decrotive stuff with CSS but when working on a site I have to also set all the content stuff in place. I don't have to worry about that on Runboard because the messageboard is the content for the most part. I don't have to worry about the way text flows on Runboard but when doing things from scratch I have to think about all of it.

Thank you Thor for all you do to help us make our message boards just the way we like them without having to worry so much about every single detail.

The Ten Commandments of Runboard (a fantasy)

April 17, 2011 at 4:00am

scene 1: Lesigner Girl and Erika walking into the break room when suddenly a bright light shines down and they see Pastor Rick given a tablet and a Runboard coffee cup.

scene 2: Pastor Rick, grows a beard and long hair then starts reading the tablet (in a Charlton Heston voice) saying:

The Ten Commandments of Runboard
1. I am Thor who brought thee out of the world of mismanaged subscription boards

2. Thou shalt not be forced to pay for message boards anymore

3. Thou shalt not share thy password with another

4. Remember thy Runboard and share it with others

5. Honor thy Message board and keep it active

6. Thou shalt not spam

7. Thou shalt not spread illegal content

8. Thou shalt not slander one another

9. Thou shalt not covet another boards cool design

10. When thou shalt ask for Support it shall be granted unto thee


scene 3: Light fades away, Pastor Rick returns to normal, shakes his head and says "I hate it when he does that... want some coffee?"

Upside down economy

March 27, 2011 at 10:35pm

This past Saturday I loaded up my lawnmowers and went down to my church to help with the first mowing of the year. I know it is odd for a senior pastor to do this but I like to get around the church members as much as I can. So i stopped by and picked up my brother and off we went, it was looking good when we got "old red" to start up. Old red is now starting its tenth mowing season and is held together by coat hanger wire and duct tape --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--.

The other mower which was less than a year old though... a totally different story because despite everything we could do it just refused to start. So we called over to the lawn mower shop and they told us they charged $[sign in to see URL] just to look at it! Then we took the mower back to where we bought it to see what they could do. I was hopeful that the mower would still be under some kind of warranty. Well, it was and it wasn't... the store would not repair the mower but they told us that if we gave them $[sign in to see URL] we could swap the broken mower for a brand new one! Of course I took the deal but it is sad to think that getting a mower fixed costs more than just swapping it out for a new one... and the really sad part... the store told me if the new one broke anytime in the next two years they would do the swap again!

Now the cool part is that we did get the churches yard mowed so everything worked out great for us when it was all said and done. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

TSA Screenings

November 30, 2010 at 4:54am

Nope, I am not going political on this but I find it very weird when the "puffer machines" (see: [sign in to see URL]) are phased out and the new x-ray scanners promoted by former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff ([sign in to see URL]) is suddenly being touted as the way to go. No mention is made why the Iscon scanners were not considered ([sign in to see URL]) even though they are now being used by the U.S. Department of Corrections ([url][sign in to see URL] One wonders why the privacy concerns of criminal suspects are more important to the government than the privacy and health concerns of the general flying public. Could it be that political friendships and ties are more important than doing the ethical and morally correct thing?

Personal bio

I was called into the ministry back in 1971 and have been active in the preaching and teaching Gods message to man ever since. In 2005 I discovered Runboard while in search of a free message board site. After looking at the other options I chose Runboard as the best option for my ministry because I could really change everything to match my website. This led to RBBT.Net as a 3rd party supporter for Runboard and the RunSearch engine led to the RDS promotions and now my major hobby is all things Runboard related.
