Sorry, what was the problem? Could you be a bit more specific?

How to make CSS codes?

You need to Google on 'css backgrounds' where you will find tutorials on using the css background property.

I'm afraid that we can not help with specifics on how to use and modify CSS/HTML with friendster.com, I realise that according to their front page they are promoting the fact that you can now customize your profiles with CSS but it's really up to them to provide guidance on how to achieve this.

If you have no experience with CSS or HTML then I'm afraid that you will probably find modifying things rather difficult, your best bet is to learn a little about the subject; sites such as w3c schools and htmldog are good starting points.

Well I hope we don't think that there is anything clever in scaring people off !

This should not be the aim, we should attempt to explain why a question falls short of expectations in the kindest manner possible.

I speak not as a saint but as a sinner on occasion and share the frustrations felt by all at times.

Re: How to make CSS codes?

CSS stands for cascading style sheet, and just like HTML, it is just a language that tells the computer to do something.

If you want to have a background image that is on all the pages of your website, just open a notepad and write this.

<!--
body{background-image: url("the_url_goes_here") }
-->

Replace the_url_goes_here with the url, but remember the quotation marks. Background-image is an operator, and you can learn many more CSS operators.

Then save your notepad as whatever.css and open a new one. This time, create a web page using HTML and in your "head", put <link rel="stylesheet" href="whatever_you_called_your_page.css" type="text/css">. Now your background image will be on the page, and so that way, if you are creating more than one page to your website, you can just type that tag in the head (the link rel tag) and it will bring up that background image.

However, if you want different background images on different pages (which is a bad idea -- your website will most likely look awful), just use HTML. <body background="the_url_goes_here">

If you know nothing about creating HTML pages, then you won't understand what I meant about the "head" or tags. If you don't, I will explain.
