If you want to change your background in your profile you need to

  1. have the background picture hosted somewhere (I assume you can use a friendster photo album).
  2. Right click on the photo and copy the url to your clipboard
  3. go to your profile and click "•edit profile"
  4. click on the "Customize (new)" tag
  5. go to the "Advanced users: Personalize your profile with CSS" field
  6. type this into the field:
    body { 
    background-image: url(http://photos.friendster.com/photos/61/62/21722616/16585444624305m.jpg); 
    }
    except you will use the url in your clipboard from step 2 (unless you want Poopdeck Pappy and Ned as your background Laughing out loud
  7. hit the "Save" button
  8. go to "My Settings"
  9. Switch "Safe Mode" to "Yes"
  10. Hit the "Save" button
  11. Switch "Safe Mode" to "No"
  12. Hit the "Save" button again
  13. Check out your profile

Some more things I think I should add:

  • No, I (we) will not make you a background. Most of the people here are professionals, work long hours and get paid to do what they do and have no reason to take food out of their families mouths to take the time to do something that you should be doing without some form of compensation. BTW, don't ask, you won't like the price. Wink
  • No, I (we) will not decode cryptic questions that are not clear, concise and to the point. Read this (not optional).
  • No, I (we) will not sign up for a freindster account just to view your updates.

Enjoy your stay. We will help you if you at least try to help yourself, I promise.

Attention: Friendsters members. How to modify your profiles

Triumph you're a star, I was half joking when I mentioned the fact that you were able to find out how friendster dealt with customizing their code.

This should prove very helpful to friendster members and I do hope that they make use of it.

I am making this sticky so that they may easily find it and perhaps pass the link on to other friendster members.

Attention: Friendsters members. How to modify your profiles

No-repeat is likely to produce one rather small background tile though, isn't it ?
Although this is speculation without sight of code or image.

sober_jamer what size is the background image ? if it is meant to cover the background as one image it will need to approximate the screen size and to not be repeated. If it is an abstract pattern that needs to fill the screen it needs to be a pattern that is suitable for repeating.

It might help - if the image is not too large in file size - if you posted it here for us to look at.

You can't scale images in CSS. You'll need to do that in PhotoShop or a similar image editor.

Attention: Friendsters members. How to modify your profiles

@Aniz

color:red;
font-weight:bold;


However you will need to know where to apply these rules.

I am assuming your a friendster member; if this is the case then you will need to follow the instructions outlined in the posts designed to help you in the 'Off Topic' section, specifically the instructions on how to add code to your profile (forgive me if I do not repeat what has already been written)

When you have that information you will need to add this code to the 'modify CSS box' on your profile:

  
body {  
font-weight:bold;  
color:blue;  
}

You must enter this exactly as written. substituting whatever colour you want in place of the 'blue'.

This bit of code will change all the page text color and make it bold.

As you are asking a general question this is the best answer that can be given without knowing whether it is specific part you want changed

This will only work if no other colors have been specified elsewhere in the existing friendster CSS style sheets. If you find that some colors do not change then you will need to identify which part of the page it is and apply the code to that item.

btw it is not necessary to use large text or to make it bold when you post on this forum.

@ khen_sathan15

What do you not understand?
What are you trying to do?

It's impossible to help you if you do not help us understand what it is that your attempting to do that is not working. So you will need to give us a little more information.

The instructions we have provided are quite complete and about as easy to understand as we can make them, you just need to follow them step by step.

Attention: Friendsters members. How to modify your profiles

Aniz,

The reference to 'Get lucky' will not work 'Get Lucky' is a skin or a theme.
In other words it applies an overall look to your profile that is already made for you and which you select using the buttons at the bottom of the page. Selecting one of these means that any code you have entered will be lost.

If you want all the page to have one color for the text and the other changes to work you will need to try this:

 
 
body { 
background-image: url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/Aniz_ZafeeRa/fs22.jpg) 
no-repeat; } 
 
body #container * { 
font-weight: bold; 
color:blue; 
background-color:transparent; 
border-color:green; 
}


Change colours for whatever you like; border-color will add back borders for the boxes, if you don't want them to be visible change it to 'none'
You can not have background-image specified in the way you have done I put in background-image:none because friendster uses some images on the title bars.
In your code you had an error on the background image with an ; before the no-repeat also make sure there is a space between ) and no-repeat

If you want the various boxes to be different I suggest that you choose one of the skins and then if you want to customize it it may be possible.

Then you should probably leave your profile as it was given to you. CSS requires at least a basic understanding of computers and coding.

Aniz you will need to change your background image code to this:

body {
background: url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/Aniz_ZafeeRa/fs22.jpg)
no-repeat fixed;
}

If that doesn't work try:

body {
background-image: url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v283/Aniz_ZafeeRa/fs22.jpg) ;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
}
