i have a problem with the comments and info colour under the contact box.
i can't find where in the code to get it out of black.

i've been using the web developer add-on for firefox. when you go under the css menu and select 'view style information', it puts a red box around each part of the page where you place the cursor and you click on it and it has code in a frame at the bottom of the page.

i just search each bit in the notepad file. lol.

As well as the code above, you can use this as your new CSS. Its the same as yours, just alot neater and more efficient.

Code:
<style type="text/css"> .pic{background-image: url('http://www.iem.ac.ru/zeppelin/images/cross64. jpg');background-repeat: no-repeat;background-color: #000000;padding:10px;} .contact {border:solid 1px #99FF33;margin:0px 0px 10px 0px;padding:5px} a:active { color: red; } a:visited { color: red; } a:link { color: red; } a:hover { color: white; } </style>


I've also fixed several errors in your code. IE white spaces in statements, and added a hyphen in the no-repeat statement.

A.dd {color: #ffc600; text-decoration: none; font:bold 9px Verdana; text-transform: lowercase}
A:hover.dd {color: #ffc600; text-decoration: none; font:bold 9px Verdana; text-transform: lowercase}


that changes the 'location' properties.

A.w {color: #ffc600; text-decoration: none; font:bold 9px Verdana; text-transform: lowercase}
A:hover.w {color: #ffc600; text-decoration: none; font:bold 9px Verdana; text-transform: lowercase}


that changes the 'sign out', 'my profile', top right bits.

How do you get crazy background effects like in Manda's profile?

Edit:

I found some cool text-shadow effects for you people WITHOUT IE or Firefox (which don't seem to support it for some reason).

http://www.kremalicious.com/2008/04...ss-text-shadow/

Anothedit: I was looking up some cool css effects with Google, and this thing on banners came up:
http://www.phoenity.com/newtedge/effective_banner/


Edit 3!?:

I'm trying to make a light box with CSS, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Quote:
<style type="text/css">
.black_overlay{(@) (@) none;(@) (@) absolute;(@) (@) 0%;(@) (@) 0%;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
background-color: black;
z-index:1001;
-moz-opacity: 0.8;
opacity:.80;
filter: alpha(opacity=80);
}

.white_content {(@) (@) none;(@) (@) absolute;(@) (@) 25%;(@) (@) 25%;
width: 50%;
height: 50%;
padding: 16px;
border: 16px solid orange;
background-color: white;
z-index:1002;
overflow: auto;
</style>


Anyone have a clue?

Your effects will work in IE if you use the correct CSS.
Theres not much point in making a lightbox if your using it for images. The only place your profile CSS will work is on the profiles homepage.

And also, lightboxes require alot of Javascript, UGProfiles wont allow you to save javascript or anything within <script></script> tags, so your lightbox wont work


Manda!
Sorry I havent got round to updating your css yet, I promise ill do it soon

Use ms paint or gimp to resize it.

that's ok i'm a tad concerned that some text on the left hand side is the same colour as the background, but other than that it's not particularly urgent. take your time - i appreciate that you've even done it in the first place

Ah, thanks. That explains it. I'm using Firefox anyway, so I guess it's a lost cause.

to rhcp22 and willrobinsonP. the video on youtube or wherever should have an 'embed' code next to the video.
so you can embed it into your page or whatever.

just copy and paste it before or after text on your page depending on where you want it.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/uxc2VGoIhHU&hl=en"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/uxc2VGoIhHU&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

will show:

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxc2VGoIhHU


on your profile!

just find your own video though.
