Tableless Layout - using CSS Only

It's been some time since I've done anything to Xoops, and the last XOOPS site I built uses a canned (Colors) theme. I'm getting ready to work on a new site, and I already know what I want it to look like. Unfortunately there isn't a theme out there that comes close to what I want.

And what I want is to use CSS to control the layout. I don't want to use tables. I'm quite adamant about this. I also plan to make sure as much as possible it semanticaly correct.

What I'm looking for is someone who has built a CSS, tableless theme/template that can offer some sage advise, or things I'll need to look out for. My hope is that I can put together a theme/template that will put the main stuff up front and menu items at the end (which SEs like) even though the menu is on the right.

What I'm shooting for is this look here.

Ranibow and DOTNETNUKE were both featured in an article in the current Visual Studio Magazine. http://www.fawcette.com you might be able to find out more info there too.

GOOD Gravy man! How many smilies are you displaying? You do know that it is possible to limit the number of smilies listed (that's why there is the "[more...]" link).
But as for your code....
displaying \n doesn't make HTML go to the next line.... just the resulting code thats written out....
Try <br> instead....

Here is my 2 cents worth....
Ability to see all posts since last visit.
Ability to see all posts w/ no replies or less than X views (X can be either user or admin config'd)
Polls. Other BB system allow a poster to also create a poll as part of the thread. I only discovered yesterday that newBB doesn't have this feature -- found out the hard way.
Expanded threaded view. 99% of the time, I switch to flat view to make it easier to view all of the replies in a thread. I would be more likely to actually use the threaded mode, if the posts were expanded to the show the post rather than just the subject line of the post (which I then have to click). Maybe this can be another view option.

It's possible.... but it isn't easy.... I've been able to sucessfully implement it in my site: http://www.developerkb.com .... but it came at a price.... because I had to modify some core files, and add a new one.... I'm perpatually stuck in a slightly older version of XOOPS and have not been able to upgrade to the latest like I want to.
A total of 4 files were harmed in the process.
Essentially, it involved the login process to check for the "Remember Me" flag and setting a cookie. Then I had to check for that cookie any time the user hit ANY page on the site (so if they are following a link from email or typed it right in they get auto logged in)..... After some sleepless nights, I discovered that I had to separate this from the original checklogin page, and do some smoke and mirrors to get it to refresh properly (while keeping it transparent to the user)
Then there was an issue with the user's changing their password and the cookie not getting updated.....
I think the XOOPS Core people are going to (hopefully) better implement this in future version.

Thats down to session times in the admin, set for cookies, extend the session time:

admin ---> system admin ---> preferences ---> general

near the bottom with cookie info you'll see a option to use sessions and session times.

hope this is of help.

[EDIT]

hacks............. mmmmmmmmm............. extending sessions works on my site with out hacks, didn't see the replys you guys made sorry.


BAD! BAD! XOOPS admin..... I hope your IPS likes you.
There is a problem with simply extending the session length... it chewes up server processing. The reason being that the session data is stored on the server, so depending on the number of people visiting the site, it could be a minor issue, or it could be a big deal (and while it may not be big deal for you, your ISP may think otherwise... most sites are hosted on shared server.... and if EVERYONE is storing session data on it )
And even some of the hacks out there do nothing more than extend that session in some pretty spectacular fasions.

Bottom line: Bacareful of what hack you implement.

I'm tryiong to update my signature to include an image. If the image points to a jpg or a gif file, I don't have any problems. BUT, if I try to point it to a URL where a dynamic image is generated, such as http://mp3.complex-sys.com/view_new.php?id=105 it doesn't want to work. IS there something built into XOOPS to prevent img tags from being rendered if it isn't a "real" image? Or what?

PS: This happens on all XOOPS sites I visit... here, my own, etc.

Or, to take it one step further... the user should also have the ability to indicate what kind of mail they would like to get - There are some I want as plain text, while others as HTML.
