Custom box - Background tutorial by MeoWmatsu Custom box - Background tutorial by MeoWmatsu
I've deceided to make a Tutorial, to help a friend out on how to set a background for you custom box. (This is my first tutorial so go easy on me ^-^' )


Here is the code , just copy and paste it into your custom box:
<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div align="center">
<div class="floaty-boat"><img src="PLACE YOUR IMAGE URL HERE"></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox">



With this tutorial you can add a content-holder box to your custom box:

It kinda works?

For some reason, with some costum box backgrounds this works, but with some others they will not show up for people that visit my page and it will dissapear for me too over time.

also i've just found out that in all other boxes that aren't custom ones it covers the content....
i guess i'll just give up with this stuff! it just wont work for me no matter what i try >.< i have no idea how everyone else manages to do this seemingly without any problems...

wow this is the first tutorial that actually kinda worked XD
now the only problem i still have is that the background picture is to thin! it doesn't cover the sides of the box >.<
do i just ave to get a wider BG pic ? that would be weird since all custombox BGs i've found so far are that thin .w.

That's probably because you didn't add in the code for a content holder.

Which browser do you use? Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox?

internet explorer

Internet explorer doesn't have that option indeed (I use google chrome)
But you can do it another way:

1. Right-click on the page (not the image you want as a Background)

2. Click on 'View Source'

3. Search in the source for "<img" (without the ") and you'll find any images on the website.

4. Continue searching for the right <img with the attribute "src=" (again without the ") and copy the value that attribute has. (example: <img src="[link]">" copy [link].

5. Now you have the link and you can continue the tutorial from there!

Or if this is too hard, you could download Google Chrome and use that as your default browser.

Hope this helps out :)
