If you mean to add a background to your bands profile page then yes you can. If you need help with the codes I can answer that.

I'm am totally new to this concept of customizing you Profile using html codes. I've tried altering the left and right spaces of my profile (ya know, the large black area either side) but nothing seems to change when I type in a code which has the link to the url. So for a start could someone recommend a good site which is good for me to host the pics that I want to use.

Also, could someone just tell the exact codes (i mean to the letter) which would be used to edit the left and right sides of my profile. I'm just a bit confused with the explanation posts. Don't mean to be awkward, but I really wanna get this under my belt.

Okay, well here's the code you need to set a background to your profile.

<style type="text/css"><!-- body {background: url(INSERT PICTURE URL HERE) } --></style>


Just copy and paste that to your ABOUT ME Section of your profile. Make sure you get an image from Photobucket or Tinypic. Make sure you put the image URL in the parenthesis.

Argh. I think I hit a key or something ****y. My background info is being displayed on my personal info section on my page. I have had that background for a few months and never had this problem. Is there any way of getting rid of the text without ruining the background?

Thanks guys!

I have a bug to report. Maybe. Might just be a result of some of my code getting destroyed when I actually added info.

But my friends table and comments section are gone. Completely. I rather like it

Hey, how do you get your most recent blog first, at the top of the page, instead of scrolling down to it?

Yay! I am having background problems

I posted for help in here over two months ago and haven't fixed it since cause quite frankly, I have no idea what I'm doing insofar as background editing.

I seen the problem on your profile and just send me a PM of all the info in your About Me section and I'll clean it up and make sure you still have the background. Please tell me if you want to change colors or anything else.

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help me, too!

Is it possible to get a snowfall effect using HTML/CSS on my profile page?

Like this kind of thing: http://www.schillmania.com/projects/snowstorm/

Or like this: http://rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/scripts/bg/snow_fall_1.html

Those pages even have the code, but I can't get it to work!

Thanks very much xxxx

Well, I took a look at your page and it looks like you already have that down. If you need more help you can send me a PM since I'm not here that often.

GOOD NEWS GUYS! Call it dumb luck, but I found the code to separate the orange text from the rest of the font! Granted it edits a few smaller things as well, but this is as good as it gets. See if it works for you!:

font {font: bold 12px Verdana; color: #COLOR; letter-spacing: none; text-decoration: none}

It changes:
- The number of profile views
- The number of blogs posted
- The "online" in 'User is online now!'
- Registered date
- Status
- The number of pieces of equipment
- The numbers in 'Displaying # to # of # comments total'
- Favorite [X] in Interests
- Rank number and total contributions in Contributions
- Ultimate-Guitar.Com in the bottom right corner

It was so simple this whole time! Unless someone else already beat me to it and I'm just reposting the code like a herp-derp. I just assumed it hadn't been found since it wasn't on the first page. In that case, my bad, carry on! =)

How to put video in section about on my profile?

Here is an example...

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Rankles/

Use this code (this is not an HTML code):

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/(go to the YouTube video. In the URL box, copy everything after the "v=" and paste here)&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" height="355" width="425">

And now I have also figured out the code to edit the light blue border around the user profile picture!

.pic .b2 td {border: outset 2px #00FFFF !important;}

^That's just mine, but you can edit the information. Obviously meaning, the style, size, and color (just don't take out the !important).

Hey Joshua, would you mind going to my profile to see if I embedded my video correctly?

It doesn't play for me - but it used to be there. I'm wondering if it is a Shockwave issue on my end.

Also, thanks for all your hard work helping people in this thread


here is the code I am using:

<embed width="580" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid545.photobucket.com/albums/hh384/buckethead_311/Splawn%20022709/DeathMarchtoCrater51_0001.flv">

Hi 311.

No, it's not loading for me. But that's not the same code as the one I posted in that comment. That's the one you need.

So first, you would copy this part of the code:
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/

Next, you would go to the YouTube video you want to embed and copy everything after the v= . Only that. It would be this part (it won't work if it's from a YT playlist, so be sure it's just the video by itself):



and paste that into the code, so it would look like this
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/kDY2XVMIPSk

then just paste the rest of the code from my comment so the full and complete code looks like this.
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/kDY2XVMIPSk&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" height="355" width="425">


After that, just paste that code anywhere in your About Me section and it should be embedded. This is just something I do though, so I have no idea if there's an easier way or if I can help if it's not. Hope it does though.

I see.

Thanks for the response Joshua.

Does it make a difference that my video is on photobucket?

Also, it has been up and running in my profile for years now - it just all of sudden disappeared the other day.

I did notice that some of the code in the 'About Me' section had been parcelled or screwed up. It happens in my blogs too every now and then. Pretty sure it is on UG's side.

The code I pasted in above is the code that it worked on before. I had pasted the entire sting into a text doc so I would have it for reference or if something happened to it. I compared the original to what is there now and I had to fix a few things as mentioned above. But even after that and looking at it with a fine tooth comb - it looks identical to the original code, which is why I think it is on UG's side, not mine.

Thoughts?

THANKS!

Ah. I'm not sure how to embed videos using photobucket, so I don't think my code would work.

But I do know that after soo many years, photobucket eventually removes anything uploaded to it to preserve space. I think in order to stop that, you have to make a photobucket account and change the settings.

^ Hey thanks again.


Not sure at this point.

I'll keep messing with the code and maybe check my settings on my Photobucket account. The video is on photobucket. It is not deleted there. I have an account. Video has been there for like 4-5 years.

Like I said, thanks again. I was hoping you would point out something obviously wrong with my code and I'd just make a change. Or that maybe UG changed slightly and someone like you would know what that is and how to adapt to it.

Cheers bud
