New Templates for Gallery and Ski Forums

The Gallery and Ski Forums site templates sucked. I had applied the site color schemes, but they had a hokey feel to them. The templates that I used for both of them were pretty generic.

Gallery and phpbb are very configurable and have pretty easy to decode and understand template files. For phpbb, I went through and modified the table attibutes for phpbb to set the width to 890 and to center the pages (like the home page for the site). In addition, I added the main site header javascripts to stick the main pictures up and randomize them.

For Gallery, pretty much the same process. I left the individual photo pages the same as they were since the pictures are of varying size and the ones that are 1024x768 don't display well in the table format and the headers don't look right unless the tables are sized to 890 wide.

Check out the Gallery and Ski Forums pages and let me know if you find any glitches or gotchas... especially if you use a browser other than IE.

Both gallery and forum look good in IE. Unfortunately, gallery is not displaying properly in firefox. Top banner is left-aligning but rest of page is centred.
