About Guild Hosting / Clan Hosting
GameStreet’s hosting system offers services and functionality that guilds and clans use on a daily basis to coordinate their activities in game. Whether you are a guild in an MMORPG or a clan playing a FPG game, GameStreet’s free guild hosting platform provides a fully functional portal for each guild or clan, with a common set of tools that can be customized to each guild’s needs.
Each guild gets their own mini-site that contains multiple pages that can be customized with any content and tools they wish to add to it. Using the Guild Designer tool, anyone can easily create a guild and add content on the fly, move content around the page using drag-and-drop, and customize the look and feel with our stock themes. Themes can also be modified using the advanced style editor, or if you are web-savvy and know how to use style sheets you can easily add custom CSS to your site.
Content is added to each page in "widgets" which are content sections that are available in dozens of different flavors. Each one has a specific purpose and can be placed anywhere on any of your guild pages. See the "Widgets and Content" tab for more details on each type of widget available. All this functionality combined make this the most flexible and customizable guild hosting system on the planet
