Notice: Header Photo

I just wanted to give you a little heads up on the new header photo of the site. In the future we will have some contests to let members submit their panorama shots to be used in the header. In order to show you all how this works, I figured I could find a suitable image from our photo gallery and put up a working example.

Special thanks to our member MohdGasim who's photo from Alsit Mountain - East Sudan is currently being featured in the header (click here to view the original).

As you can see in the following example, I had to crop out a panorama from a larger photo:

Click image for larger version

Name:	ct example 1.jpg
Views:	361
Size:	52.0 KB
ID:	8313

The result is a panorama photo that is 8 times wider then it is tall (8:1 aspect ratio).

Click image for larger version

Name:	ct example 2.jpg
Views:	346
Size:	9.0 KB
ID:	8314

We will announce more details in the future when we hold our first contest to replace the current photo in the header. Hopefully we can keep things fresh by replacing the header on a regular basis. More to come soon...

I have a similar thing on my vBulletin forum, except that I have some Javascript that runs and randomly selects the banner. I'd be willing to share if you'd like.

Zippy, thanks for offering that. I took at look at your site, it's a nice setup of vBulletin 4. Regarding the javascript, I think we are going to stick to a single header image and just change them out every so often. This is because we have a big international audience and we need as many elements of the site to cache as possible. Thanks for offering though...

X2. And here's a pitch for one of my favorites on the site. But I suspect it won't work in 'letterbox' mode.


2010 VW Touareg V6TDI | AK Gray/Anthracite | Air Suspension | Lux Package | Factory Hitch | 17" Makalus (5) | CBI Fold Down Tire Carrier | Antec Underride Protection Plate & Extension | 265/65R17 General Grabber AT2s (5)
