skins..< you need two windows open for this>
rip a skin from me that i created and use this as a starter, go into your skins
scroll until you see "my skin" to the right it says "edit skin", click it
this opens a new window with the skin coding inside.
right click and hit select all
hit the back button
hit create a skin at the top
and it opens a new skin
delete everything in the blank skin
paste the skin you copied there
name it and save it
this is the one you will be using to make changes to instead of changing the original
now in a different window open your pic hosting site (photobucket.com or pictub.com
go to the pic you want to use
you need to copy the IMG code
then go back to the skin you are working on
scroll down about a quarter way down the page should be about the 10th or 15th paragraph
it says body background(it is much longer than the rest)
that is where you paste the IMG code at
just replace the http:// so forth
from http: to jpg
it will shove in the IMG as well just delete that from the front and back
hit save skin at the bottom
then go to your page and make sure the pic took to the skin
go look and make sure the pic took to the skin
go to profile and view as everyone else does
if you want to change the color of the borders each border has its own line in the appropriate paragraph
they are all labeled such as shoutbox
please note that the codes need a # sign before them in the skin
if i changed the number of the color you probably should too
i suggest starting with 4 number codes that seem to go together in a scheme
because some of the colors are on top of each other and if they are too similar they wont show up
such as the cherry whistle and the percentage bar
the bar is on top of the background color and in it you can choose an additional color for the numbers that appear
so i suggest 4 starting colors
when you are changing colors and if i used a different color it is probably because it is on top of another color
changing the size of padding should also be done if you are changing the size of other things around it
such as : if you change font size it wont fit in the box
so you have to change the padding to change the size of the box it is in
but in my skin the padding should be right on top of or below the font size and color in the coding of the skin.
make sure you preview the skin when your done to make sure it is the way you want it.
**to change color on your skin,
enter the #000000 <-- examle.
or type in the word Blue <---example.
smile: it brings up your face value
