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.

[size="1"]
<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>
[/size]


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

Would anyone be able to tell me how to make a picture smaller so i can use it as my profile picture
#87
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.
#88
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/make-cool-and-clever-text-effects-with-css-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.


<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.

anyone no how to get youtube vids in ur about me section?
( . Y . )
#98
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:

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


on your profile!

just find your own video though.

hey guys

perhaps someone could tell me how to change my sig?


Up at the top of the page (under the advertisement), it should say 'control panel'.

Click on that, and on the left, it should say 'edit signature'. Click that.

Ctrl and F5 on the keyboard.

it'll hard-refresh the page and let you see the new one. F5 will just refresh the page normally.

It just takes some time, it usually takes mine about 2 days to fully change.

@ctb, wow, i never new that. Thanks.

I noticed that some of the css code wasn't showing up so instead of having a seperate css stylesheet saved on another server I placed the <style></style> tags within <body></body> tags and everything that didn't show up before shows up fine now. Just if anyone wants to know.

Well, if anyone gives a crap... here's what I did for my stylesheet:



<body STYLE="background-image:url(http://www.profilepitstop.com/myspace_graphics/userpics/graphics/thumbnail/funny_pictures_1230.jpg);backgroundcolor:#C11B17;background-attachment:fixed;background-position:left;background-repeat:yes-repeat;">

Sorry for the big mess, but it never worked when I added new lines into it.
Anyways, does anyone know a site where I can put up a stylesheet to link to? Cuz it's a pain in the ass to scroll through that huge wall of text whenever I want to tweak something.
Signature? What's a signature?

Do you mean you've got massive amounts of blank space in you About Me?

because if you space out your codes, the spaces in between will add up, resulting in a big random blank space.

Quote by The Rules
What is a signature/avatar/user title? How do I change mine?
- Your signature is a piece of writing that will be added to the end of every post you make. It must be no more than 250 characters in length (including any code) and cannot contain embedded images.
- Your avatar is the small picture that appears beside every post you make. It must be 50x50 pixels in size or smaller, and no larger than 19.5kb. If you need a picture resized, please visit the Avatar Exchange.
- Your user title is the small piece of writing that appears directly below your username, next to each post you make.

- All of these options can be changed in your Control Panel which can be found near the top of your screen:



- The options to edit your signature, avatar and user title (found within Edit Profile) can be found on the left menu in your Control Panel:
