    Hello Every one,
    I have not taken a peek over here in a long time..
    Its really building up with members now.
    I love the members page idea and want to work on
    one for me.. I would like to see others that have
    built indepth pages. So post yours here to show off
    a little bit. I would love to see them.
    Melanie


    Any one know if its possible to put a background on my page
    and how to do it? I either want a back ground or to frame in
    my content.

    HI MELANIE![​IMG]

    I just made a personal page! I also think its a great idea!!! .... I put the link for it in my signature, but it would be good if it was on the left side with our email and web site addys.

    For a colored background (I used black) or image background, use the table button on the 3rd row of tools..... then put all your content inside the table.


    (the silkie pic on my page is from your eggs!)

    Well I thought that sounded simple so I made a simple content box/frame and could not figure out how to get my ifo into it, and I lost everything. IT kept posting it above or below the box... I also tried to just copy and paste the info into it and it kept showing up as html code.
    :-( Melanie

    OK I DID IT... CHECK OUT WHAT I GOT SO FAR.
    KAT - I LOVE YOUR PAGE. And I also wish there was a clickable link
    next to the email and web page buttons

    ohhhh [​IMG] it can be frustrating.

    make the table about 600-700 px wide 1 colum and 1 row. play around with border size and color as well as cell padding.....then when you are happy with how the background and border looks, click inside the table and start adding all your content inside the table.

    Also when you save make sure you dont hit the blank page icon beside the save icon (I found that out the hard way ) ;-) it cleared everything!

    I might have to email it to you because I cant write code on this site without it turning into real html.[​IMG]

    Go to where you add your signature
    on the BBcode list where it shows links and images
    use the first url code
    change the address to your address
    then
    change the text in the middle of the code from BackYardChickens Forum to
    My Personal Page

    If this dosnt make sence :) I'll email it to ya.

    Hey Kat, if you want to paste code into the forum you can do so, just wrap it in code tags like the following (removing the spaces):

    [code ] your code here [ /code]
