How To Edit Your Profile

Post by Luffy » 28 Jun 2008, 17:00

OK it's seem like a lot of members are having trouble setting the profile background. So here the instruction for it ;)

Edit your profile

Click on My Account at the top of the page. Then click on My Profile to edit your profile. You could set the profile background, profile text color, and other information for your profile.

Get a picture URL for your profile background

You could go to Google Images to search for anime wallpaper. For instance, type in the keyword anime wallpaper, bleach wallpaper, one piece wallpaper or naturo wallpaper. When you have found the one that you like, click on it. Then click on See full-size image. If a bigger picture displays and you see the URL address ends with something like .jpg, .gif, or .png then that's the URL of the picture. Just copy and paste it into your Background Profile textbox ;)

You could do the same with Yahoo Images, but instead of clicking on See full-size image, click on View Image ;)

Google Images
http://images.google.com

Yahoo Images
http://images.search.yahoo.com/

Image
Copy and paste that into your background profile

Note: For some images, when you click on it, it will popup a dialog box asking you to Save the image. You could save it and upload it to other free image hosting site such as tinypic.com or imageshack.us to get the URL of the picture.

Add music to your profile

To add music to your profile, you could either use eSnips.com or imeem.com. It's better to use eSnips because imeem has a lot of songs that you can only play for 30 secconds :D To add music from eSnips, go to http://www.esnips.com and search for your song. Then just copy the URL in the address bar and paste it into the Music box in your profile.

Copy this URL and paste it into the Music box

To add music from imeem, copy the embed code under the player and paste it into the Music box in your profile.


Insert images to your profile

To insert images to your porilfe, first you need a URL of the image just like the profile background. Then you can use BBCode to put the image on your profile. In the profile editor, you can click on the Img button to insert the Image BBcode.

Image

Then paste the URL of the image in the center of the tag. Like this:

Code: Select all

[img]http://i35.tinypic.com/30ua5ar.jpg[/img]

Sometimes a site does not let you link the images, so it's best to save the image to your computer and then upload it to some free image hosting site such as Tinypic.com. For the profile background, you need to copy the one in the Direlect link textbox. For the About Me section, you can copy the IMG Code for forums, which already has the image BBcode inserted.

Use Other BBCode in Your Profile

Here are some other BBCode that your could use for your profile:

Marquee: Make running text or images. You can put anything inside the marquee code and set the direction to either left or right

Code: Select all

[marquee=left]My text here[/marquee]

Example:
My text here

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

Align: Align your text to left, center, or right

Code: Select all

[align=center]My Text Here[/align]

Example:
My Text Here


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

Highlight: Put a background into your text. FOr the colors, you could either use words like green. red, or the color code

Code: Select all

[highlight=#80BF00]My Text Here[/highlight]

Example:
My Text Here

Youtube Video

To post YouTube video on your profile. Copy the video URL and use this code

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGuaTb0uE0k[/youtube]


Delete the other stuff in the URL and just leave ?v=aGuaTb0uE0k otherwise it will not work. If you want to set autoplay, just add &autoplay=1 to the url

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGuaTb0uE0k&autoplay=1[/youtube]


Those are just some of the interesting BBCode that you could use for your profile. There are many more BBcode and I'll also add more interesting BBCode soon. For more information about BBCode, Click here



I hope the explanation is clear enough. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in here ;)

you need to have a full URL address for the picture. A correct URL should be something like http://....... .jpg . What you have now is just a name of a picture, not a URL :D

Hey guys now you could also add music from http://www.esnips.com . eSnips is better because all the songs are in full length. Read the first post for instructions to add music from eSnips :D
