I've tried a few out, didnt like them much.

Wanted something like the concert database search results uses with "Elvis" in it using colors to define name and title etc.

so "ELV15562days" or something..... or something even better lol

anyway, I've decided to open it up over time or whatever to have people submit an image.

Needs to be in size: 149 pixels wide 52 pixels tall

Preferably gif file with background invisible if you want so the blue still shows through? Up to you. No rush.

Current one is this with backbround made invisible.

Now you come to mention it, there are titles for the forum which would be a tad 'catchier' than what we have now...

You misunderstood me there !

The subtitles are fine !

It was the "15562days" main title which I thought could be catchier !

I know what it signifies, but what's the relevance to the content here ?

It reflects that this site has laid out Elvis' life & professional career in 15562 individual days.

I suppose you mean if someone saw the domain name listed they wouldnt have a clue it had anything to do with Elvis.
I pretty sure that's true.
But, the robots have been doing their thing. If you look at the most amount of people that were here at one point it says 78.
77 of them were the robots busily logging everything.
So when people search for an Elvis related item, maybe a date, an item, a record, a song, whatever, provided its on here somewhere it will slowly move up the results and what people see on results is the text that's relevant more than they do the domain name.
I can't change the domain name, well I could, but I wouldn't want the grief in trying.
I also need to do the META tags. These are tags built into the sites html head, so key words related to Elvis will also help.

Its hard, still loads to do, but time will show its worth it. (I actually came here the other day to look up something!)

There are other Elvis reference sites, like Keith Flynn's excellent one, but it looks like none will be as 'all-singing-and-dancing' as this one will be !

Yes, it's hard to be different. Elvis is Elvis and we can't change anything about him.
Sites like Keiths, Francescs and others have their place in the history of Elvis and the internet. But they are what they are - one way information only sites.
On here its how we distribute and display the information, it's how we can allow the site to cross reference itself and also it's unique in that by using the forum format it allows fans to help build it with what they want in it but in a pre-formatted way.
So other forums just have topics at random in loosley defined sections. By mapping the topics out in a predefined chronological order it allows a structure to be followed and adhered to but waiting to be filled in and built so to speak.
That is very different as far as Elvis sites go.

And it's still evolving - ever since you turned up lol
No, seriously though, its about other peoples perspective on something where their way of looking at something is a way that others hadn't looked at before. :!:

But the date range you cover goes back to 1930/31 !

Somewhat greater than 15,562 days...

No ya muppet, how is it greater?
Elvis' life and professional career spaned 15562 days.
I might well have before and after Elvis life but go take a look at post August 16th 1977 and see what the day numbers are, they start to go minus lol (seriously), Aug 17th was day number -1, so its always 15562 days minus a figure after Aug 16th.
I dont think a version was set up for pre jan 8th 1935 as it didnt have individual days.

Are you referring to the profile, the Jailhouse Rock profile, on top of the screen?
if that is the case the image is reversed.

Wait a sec, can you see a Jailhouse Rock photo at the top of the screen?
I can't.
But that doesn't mean there isn't one.
A couple of weeks ago I tried to insert an image in the header - it didn't work. Or at least I thought it didn't work as I couldn't get it to display.
But that might be the cache at my end still causing the old version to display.
I can't recall if I shruggged my shoulders and just left it there or whether I removed it from the code.
Having said all that it was a red top Jailhouse Rock promo shoot photo I used.
Is it that one you can see PP?

It's just that what you see on your screen isn't always the latest version of the site you're on.

The pesky 'cache' can be still 'remembering' [& displaying] an out-of-date version.
