Non-coding contributions

Post by wheybags »

So, if there's anyone out there that wants to help out with freeablo, but isn't a programmer, you could maybe help with the site.
This website is a bit shitty, it would be nice to have a specialised wordpress + phpbb theme (where the two are stylistically consistent, like http://openmw.org)
Another thing is a clone of the exocet font under a permissive license, if there is anyone out there who can make fonts :P
Otherwise, of course, there is always bug testing :P

Well I'm not really a fantastic graphic artist that can build that consistent theme for both phpbb and wordpress, however I do have a subscription to RocketTheme for wordpress themes. It's not much to be able to get a theme to you to use for Freeablo. They make consistent themes for phpbb, wordpress, joomla and even magneto and it wouldn't take much to match colours and create banners to make it a Freeablo theme.

Wordpress themes: http://demo.rockettheme.com/wordpress-themes
phpBB styles: http://demo.rockettheme.com/phpbb-styles

Check some of them out, not every theme is shared between the two. If you like this idea let me know and I can aid in implementing them. I do have a friend that does graphic design, he made the Khanduras Network logo. He wants to help me with Khanduras, I'm sure we could help you when that time comes. But neither of us can start something like you're asking from scratch, I start with a template like this and customize it as much as I can. We can change fonts and layouts fairly easily, I'd be glad to help there if I can.

I actually quite like the current wp theme, but if someone makes a new one instead of adapting that I'd be totally ok with that.
Thanl you very much for the offer, but I'd rather avoid using paid themes, want to keep everything about this liberally licensed :P

I completely understand, just thought I'd offer what I have.

Another thing actually is if there are any typographers out there, a clone of exocet under a permissive license would be really great for ingame uis

You can find AvQuest but it's only freeware, not completly free :

"This font is Testware, in that you can use it free of charge (non commercial purposes only) without getting permission".
