Pretty Up Your Profile by Gasara Pretty Up Your Profile by Gasara
An updated and more in-depth version of this tutorial can now be found here.

I've been asked a number of times how I add background images to the boxes on my profile page so I thought I'd put this together. There's some basic HTML in there as well for snazzy formatting.

The code you'll need for adding backgrounds is below. Just copy/paste into your custom boxes and add your links and content.

--------------------------------------

ADDING BACKGROUNDS TO YOUR CUSTOM BOX:

<div class="popup2-moremenu">
<div class="floaty-boat"><img src="BACKGROUND IMAGE URL"></div>
<div class="gr-box gr-genericbox">

YOUR CONTENT

</div></div>



--------------------------------------

Troubleshooting & FAQ can be found here:

Custom Box - Troubleshooting & FAQCustom Boxes
Quite a few people still seem to have issues with getting their custom box backgrounds to work correctly so I thought I'd put this little troubleshooting guide and FAQ together to help. If you follow the instructions closely, you shouldn't have any problems.
If you encounter any issues that aren't explained here, please let me know. I will update this guide with any extra info or solutions as they are requested.
You can read more about customising your profile page here.
The Basics
<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><img src="IMAGE URL"></div></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox" align="center">
CUSTOM TEXT
</div>

Copy the code above and paste into a Custom box on your profile page. Add the URL of your background image where it says IMAGE URL and replace CUSTOM TEXT with the content you want


Please read before asking for help. Cheers x

Thankyou, I am so bad with reading code T^T. For a custom profile I would need to make every box a custom box?
