[I WILL PAY SOMEONE FOR A FEW HOURS OF HELP. PLEASE RESCUE ME FROM BLOATWARE SKINS THAT DON'T WORK AS ADVERTISED.]
I have real bills to pay so if someone is feeling ... what is the word ... generous I would be so thankful if I didn't have to pay but if what I'm asking is very complex please tell me and maybe I should reconsider.
I'm trying desperately to start a simple business and get it off the ground. It's just a parent gateway. I don't need fancy slide-ins. I want the simplest looking portal to match my site www.bitsunderground.com so I bought this skin Simple Responsive 10 Color and I installed DNN and then went to install this skin. I just wanted to plain gray in fact "Slate Gray" and the 07 container with the "Gray Homepage". I now have a bright green site. Their support DnnVista.Net sucks. There is no phone number and it's email based. I emailed them explaining the problem and what I got were the instructions explained in the .zip file readme.pdf which while most would classify as a response most would also say it's a useless response.
I'm a father, recently laid off. We run out of money entirely in weeks. I need to be able to start a message board with forums, process basic payments, upload videos and do product reviews. I need a very simple DNN layout with few wiz-bangs and yet after installing the skin I have overwhelming junk upon my site. I have used DNN in the past and used skins in the past and in the past you applied the skin and the entire site took on the skin. I picked slate gray like my main site I never asked for green and it's everywhere.
I have very little money and yet I will pay someone to help me get this home page to look like a simple home page that non-technical parents can quickly find what they want and go to.
Yes, I could open it in Visual Studio, yes I could modify the CSS and yes I could go about all the work of customizing but I thought that's why I bought a skin so I didn't have to create classes and such.
