FAQ - Background and Scroll Boxes

Before you can post images on your page or in the board, you will first need to validate your account.  See here for instructions.

Backgrounds
In order to have a background on your who I am you need to use a table.

This is the basic code.
<table style="height: 100px; width: 100px; background-color: #000000; " >
<tr><td>Text</td></tr>
</table>

Alternative code
<div style="border:1px solid #000000; background-image:url('URLGOESHERE'); width: 590px; height: 590px; background-color: #ffffff; color: #000000; font-size: 11px; font-family: Arial; overflow: auto">

Scroll boxes
<div style="overflow:auto; height: 300px; width:550px; font-family:georgia; font-size: 14px; color: ffffff; border-color: #ff0000; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; background-color: #000000;">
<div align="center">YOUR TEXT HERE</div></div>

For a transparent scroll box use this code
<center><div style="FONT-SIZE: 9pt; OVERFLOW: auto; WIDTH: 194px; COLOR: orange; FONT-FAMILY: arial; HEIGHT: 231px; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent"><p>ENTER YOUR CODE HERE</div></center>

To get two scroll boxes side by side
<table><tr>
<td>SCROLLBOXCODE</td>
<td>SCROLLBOXCODE</td>
</tr></table>

Copy and paste the code into your "Who Am I" remove the SCROLLBOXCODE And add your scroll box code.




Once you place the code on your profile it can not be changed. If you want to change the background colour or size you will have to delete it and start again.

You can have a background image instead of a background colour by replacing background-color: #HEXCODE with background-image: url(IMGURLHERE)

In order to change the colours of the border, fonts and backgrounds you need to know the hex code of the colour you want. They can be found here
