Tutorial: Adding a Custom Background Image  


Learn how to customize the background image of your profile pages using the step-by-step tutorial below. Feel free to post any comments or questions.

1) The first step is to find a background image to use on your page and upload it to an image hosting site like photobucket.com. Image hosting sites will usually provide you with the direct link to the image. This is needed as it provides the exact web address to the image location.

2) Log into your Writers-Network.com account. To add the background image to a poem page, you will need to add some code into the Body section (the large text area where you type your poem). You can either edit an existing poem or create a new one. NOTE: you can also add a background image to your homepage by adding the code to the "Introduction" section of your profile.

3) Copy the code below and paste it into the Body section of your poem page. PLEASE NOTE: the code below should be pasted all together on the same line (no line breaks):


4) Once you've pasted the code into the text area, replace the text that reads IMG URL HERE with the actual URL (direct link) to the image that you received from the photo hosting site. Make sure you do NOT delete the two quotes from the code.

5) Click "Publish Entry" and you're done! Visit your profile to view the change. NOTE: If you are creating a new poem, be sure to enter the actual poem TITLE otherwise you will not be able to find your poem.

You can only see the background image by visiting your profile. The background feature does not show when viewing a poem from the W-N homepage.

Ive used the code on this page and replaced the default grey/white stripped background with a pink and white one. Visit my profile to see this in action: http://www.writers-network.com/index.cgi?m=1&view=52864

ENJOY!!!

Very helpful to have support like this, but I followed all of the directions and I am still having difficulty with a custom background. I have no problem with codes and use them all the time for images, but its not working with the
I will keep trying. Also, I can not find an "introduction section" in the profile. Once you use a formatted background-you can't delete the one in there to put in your own. (?)
I know it can be done and I'll keep trying. Thanks

The code is above (in blue) and should be added WITHOUT any line breaks (in other words, all the code should be on the same line).

As for the "introduction section"--it's no longer labelled that but you can still find in on the "Update Your Profile" page under the label "Homepage Text".

If you want to delete the background at a later date, just delete the line of code.
