I've been working on some blogs on how to mod your profile, but in an easy step-by-step way for people who find this thread a little confusing. Here's the links:

Hey. I've come back with a new pimped profile, brilliant thread

But I have a few problems. If you look on the profile page, there are still one or two random yellow texts, for example my status, and the "time" indicators on my MP3 tracks, and I can't find the code that deals with it . Also, my inactive tabs seem to be "hovering, and both these problems are bugging me.

Help would be appreciated


Regarding the yellow texts, I don't think it's possible to change that. I've never seen any profile with other colours, at least. (You should probably wait for someone that hasn't leeched off ctb for his entire modding experience, though )

The inactive tab is for some reason supposed to look like that, it annoys the living heck out of me too

Also, that's an epic background

MushroomEDIT: Regarding your first post, yes you can add an animated .GIF. But you can't stick more than one image in the different parameters.

But you can do like I did (which I pretty much copied from ZeGuitarist), and create a background like this: http://i42.tinypic.com/2rqhx52.jpg (from ZeGuitarist's profile). You can see how he then filled both the left and right side of the top parameter with only one picture.

A few question:

Is it possible to fill the whole background (the frontal part, not the sides) with a single "wallpaper"? Do I just center the image? I'm about to experiment.

And also, does this respond to .GIF? Can I Animate, for example, the sides, by linking it to a .GIF image?
Yeah, should be possible. Good luck with that. It probably won't go to plan. (If I tried anyway. But I'm fussy. :p) It might overlap parts where you don't want it to be.

GIFs should work.
Quote by texico11
Finally, can I stick more than one image in the different parameters of the profile? So, in the background, I could stick one image at the bottom left, one at the bottom right, etc? ZeGuitarists example only shows one image for every element section.

TY
Proabaly not. People aren't allowed to use a position code, and a couple of other codes after the UG team stopped people linking code sheets they uploaded from sites.

By the way, what is the deal with copyrights regarding the profiles? Several people have used photos for there profile, including ZeGuitarist. If I made a bunch of profiles on various theme to let others use, what would the deal be?

/knows little about the legal situation regarding images.
I'm sure there's not a problem with it, if people are getting the pictures from Google Images or whatever anyway.

Nice lightning theme!

What would I need to write to put this http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y211/arpeggi/londoncalling.jpg as my profile background? I have already tried but can't get it right.

When I try that, it comes up with the "this has been deleted" sing from photobucket, and if I replace the html with a different one it's just black

Shame about ctb, probably could've helped me out here..

Today I started modding my profile ;

http://tinyurl.com/mkpv5m

There are few questions I have though.

How do I get the bit that says 'About Don_Humpador' to have a blue border like the rest of it?See how it's blue for about 90%, but only that top bit is grey? I'm sure it's in there somewhere but amidst the mire of code...

Is it possible to change the yellow text? I read the thread here but couldn't find an answer.

Can I remove the underscores/underlines on the 'All Posts/Threads by..' ? Same thing goes for UG groups bit, I had a look but couldn't find any script that said 'text-decoration; underline'...?

How do I fix my name in the top right-hand corner to stay the same size? I don't remember editing it at all, but when I hover over it, it gets several pixels larger.. Bugging the hell out of me.

Thanks, and cheers for the guide, I needed to spruce up my profile

Edit : I can't get pictures to work I have the right code, I'm using Tinypic, it's the right size..

It's one of these two codes: (can't remember which one)

DIV.info_ot {background: url(URL) #COLOR}

DIV.info_ot_s {background: url(URL) #COLOR}

Not at the moment. I'm trying to find the code for that.

Press: Control and F and then type in underline. Once you find it, backspace it and type in none.

Thanks for that

I did try the find idea but it didn't occur to me that because it's in the editing window, doing a find on it wouldn't work, so I had to copy it out into TextEdit before finding that rogue 'Underline'.

how do you put you tube videos in your profile?


Go to the YouTube video you want to embed into your profile, on the right hand side near the video description there are two links, one saying URL and the other Embed. Copy the Embed code and post it into the 'About me & Interests' section of your profile

Change all of these:
font: Verdana;

into these:
font: PUTANYFONTINHERE;

(For a list of fonts that work with HTML, open Microsoft Word and look at the fonts in there. The fonts that work with Microsoft Word work with HTML.)

Hi all!

The UG Profile Mod thread has been renewed! The old thread has become obsolete since the banning of the use of css stylesheets to modify profile pages... So, a lot of the info in the old thread became useless, and the useful info that remained is scattered all over a huge thread! So, we decided it was time for a new thread... The one and only Official UG Profile Mod Thread, version 2!

So, with the banning of css sheets, all there’s left for us to modify our profiles with is HTML! So, for all of you users who want to pimp their profile, but don’t know how: everything you need to know about HTML and profile modding will be collected in this thread!

Hey.

I customised my profile using Internet Explorer a while ago and it looks fine on it. But I'm using Firefox now, and some of the background codes for the grey stripey areas and stuff aren't working on it. How do I change that?

Thanks.

Switch some the the nonworking codes around in your full HTML code. I don't know why it works, but it does.

I can't find this code even though I know that I have it. Try using one of these:
.b1 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}
.b2 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}
.b3 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}
.b4 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}
.b5 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}
.b6 {border: solid 1px #COLOR}

(Once I find the right code, I'll be sure to post it here)

Also, can someone give me the basic code of a UG profile?

I foolishly tried to embed 2 videos (big mistake) on my profile and found the "hard work" I'd done to sexify my profile was wiped out. And I can't be arsed to copy every line so.. Please?

Editing group profiles use the same codes as member profiles, just pop it in at the bottom of the 'long' about this group box.

The entire code to ZeGuitarist's profile is at the bottom of the first or second post in this thread, it should do wonders

I did the same thing when I tried popping in three YouTube videos on my profile, but I just took it as an opportunity to make a newer, even better profile
