Thank you for reading this post.
I just finished a new skin layout (just played around with photoshop). And I must say that I'am very excited about it. ...... But!
Looking at it, I see a kind of a implementation problem. As it is, it can't grow in height I think. Does any of you guys have an idea of how to do this?

If you slice it right under the banner then you could let that slice repeat.
Then your image of the desert that sits in the back would move down as the page grew.

But that would be then the repeated area, I understand. But in that case, content would not apear in the bottom area where the two camels are (is it?).

you could do the inner section as a fixed size div then scroll/clip the inner content, then place all your panes inside that.
<div style="width:500px;height:400px;overflow:scroll or hidden or auto">
you will need to do a seperate admin skin as its really annoying trying to edit and having to scroll to see bits. also wont work on real old browsers.

I wouldn't do a scrolling div on the inside. That makes sites look like they are using frames. Just my opinion though.
If adding the content is something you have control over, you could put one pane in the bottom area and just make sure the content didn't overflow that part.
You could also slice the lower part with the camels even more but you would have to find a place to repeat it somewhere lower.

My approch made for terrible load time......not good

Thnx for the reactions
I think that I slice it so that i get a repeated horizontal line (1px height) just beneath the banner but in a special way.
I'll try to slice both the white content as the background content (the camels) seperate for the same (1px horizontal) line. And try to let those two layers (divs on top of eachother) grow in height seperately so that I can use the top div layer (white one)
from top to bottom and let the lower div (camels picture) grow with it, when necessary.
If it works I'll show you somewhere on the net.

I've got dozens of projects that just take a huge stop when it comes to implementing with dnn.
The only way I can see that really being feasible it to accept an area of wasted space, probably split the panes up accordingly to have elements with no background able to expand, use elements of fixed images/links to fill areas that will fall apart when
You're game than me.. I have this cool smoked/black/green skin I played around with and it was designed to have a sort of blurred affect over the main skin but it becomes extremely fragile.
There is nothing wrong with doing a completely fixed skin - if the site doesn't have much content you could design it this way have a very cool effect.
Just my two cents worth and it's a cool looking skin alright!
