UG Profile Mod Thread - How to customise your UG Profile!

This entire thread is made for information on how to modify your own UG profile, seeing as I still see people asking me how I changed the colour of the letters in mine. Any other mod questions should be asked here and hopefully someone will answer. I ,however, am no good at computers so hopefully questions asked will be answered by other UG Members who know what they're doing.

NEW THREAD IS HERE: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1018162

<style type="text/css"> a:active { color: red; } a:visited { color: red; } a:link { color: red; } a:hover { color: white; }
</style>

You can get the color codes here.
And you can also replace the space occupied by 'red' with the color codes.

Why, thank you. So you can change the colour by changing the "red" in the code to any colour you like?

Yep, you can use the codes or you can put something simple like Blue, Orange, White, Black.

*moving to the New Member's forum because that's where questions about the site/forums/etc belong*

we've had quite a few questions about customising profiles in here already so it should be quite helpful to have a reference for people who want to jazz their profiles up a bit

Code:
<body STYLE="background-image:url(http://tex-server.org/text/wp-content/lines-2.jpg); background color:#C11B17; background-attachment: fixed; background-position:left; background-repeat:yes-repeat;">


that. make sure the code carries on on all one line though. had to make it like that for the time being because it made my post really wide.

Code:
http://tex-server.org/text/wp-content/lines-2.jpg


that of course is the link to the image. be sure to put it on photobucket or imageshack in case the picture gets removed.

edit: lul. i stole connorhd's profile.
i'm gonna make it different though. i'm not a meanie.

We all know my profile is the coolest.

But it's mostly HTML and CSS, it's not hard if people bother to look for themselves.

a request for this thread to be moved to Site Suggestions please?

seeing as there is the Official Ultimate Guitar Profiles Suggestions Thread.
i'm sure that it fits in more with the feedback forum rather than the newbie forum.

how exactly is advice on modifying your profile a suggestion?

trust me, it belongs here, as this forum is where people should be asking questions about the site/forums/profiles.

if you have a suggestion for something the UG team can do to improve the profiles in general, such as adding a feature, then that would go in site feedback.

Sometimes for some reason, when you edit the css in your about me section, it automatically inserts whitespaces into it.

And the UG profiles use alot of different classes for multiple things...
IE
td.b8 {}, DIV.info_in_s{} etc etc

I found if you save it as a stylesheet (.css) as opposed to direct css and upload it to another webserver, and use your UG program to link back to it ( <link rel=...> ) then that works best.

Phil, are there servers one can get an account similar to photobucket, et al, where one can upload a stylesheet? i'm only familiar with the image upload sites, because that's all i've needed before.

this is different, Clifford.

the Profile Suggestions thread is about what the programmers might change about how those pages work, add features, etc.

this thread is about how we, as users, can enter things into our own profile page, specifically the 'about me' section and create our own unique look.

You can try Ripway or just Google "file hosting" and you should find a bunch of sites. You could even use something like FreeWebs or 110mb.

I'd also recommend that anyone with FireFox get the Firebug add-on, which allows you to probe the webpage, identify classes and ids, and change them to see how they would look.

are you using:

?

Perhaps file linking isn't permitted with that web host

I just copied this from something -BlackZepplin- posted-


Here's some codes...


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


<style type="text/css">a:active, a:visited, a:link { color:#B22222} <br />
a:hover { color:#66CCFF; } <br />
</style><br />

^ this one changes JUST the color of the font on links, underlined texts, etc.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


<style type="text/css"><!-- span,td,body{font-family:franklin Gothic medium; font-style:italic;font-size:16px;color:#C58917;} //--></style>

^ this one changes the actual text on your page/profile. You can modify the text family(where it says franklin Gothic medium), the style(where it say italics), the size(where it says 16), and of course the color(where it says #C58917)


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


You can look at my profile as an example. Also heres a link to all of the color codes...

http://www.computerhope.com/htmcolor.htm

Just copy and paste the one of your choice into the appropriate section in one(or both) of the HTML color codes I posted above.


OH YEA! Those HTML Color Codes are to be posted in your "About me" section of your profle...

My Profile ---> Edit Profile ---> About me & Interests ---> About Me [html allowed]

mikko:
  • TD.sts {border:1px solid #COLOR;padding:4px 0px 2px 7px;font:bold 11px Arial; color:#39688C;letter-spacing:1px}
    • This will change the "last updated" section
  • .contact {border:solid 1px #COLOR;margin:0px 0px 10px 0px;padding:5px}
    • This will change the blue outline around the "contacting mikko" section
  • .pic {background:#102839 URL('URL') no-repeat;padding:10px;margin-bottom:15px}
    • This will change the background image of your profile pic

If you need anything else just say.
Some stuff cant be changed because it doesnt have a class name, its set as a live style.
