Journal Background

Ok, I have several people ask me how to add a background to their journals; hopefully I can explain it all with one post.

First you'll need a site that will allow you to link to a picture from that site. I use http://www.liquid2k.com; get one there now.

Secondly you need to upload your picture to your site. As soon as you have your site go there and upload it.

Third, you'll need to modify your journal, using the modify journal page. You will be adding some lines of code in the box that says, "This is not where you type your journal!" Here is the code I have added to mine;

GLOBAL_HEAD<=
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
body, html, td, font, div, p {
font-size: 10pt;
}
body { background-image:url(http://liquid2k.com/justgoto/tankszone.jpg);background-attachment: fixed }
table {background:transparent}
-->
</STYLE>
<=GLOBAL_HEAD


Basically it is all CSS, (Cascading Style Sheet,) code; this particular set-up will change my text size and make all the table backgrounds transparent.
If you look where it says, "background-image:url(http://liquid2k.com/justgoto/tankszone.jpg)."
You can see the site name, http://liquid2k.com/, then my name, justgoto and the background image tankzone.jpg. Make sure you keep every space and every puncuation mark, as is. The background is fixed and the table backgrounds are set to be transparent. Press here to see what I mean.

If you like your table backgrounds, just make it like this;

GLOBAL_HEAD<=
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
body { background-image:url(http://liquid2k.com/justgoto/tankszone.jpg);background-attachment: fixed }
-->
</STYLE>
<=GLOBAL_HEAD


It's all the same really, but the table and font code is gone. You can see an example of this here.

I will read up in howto and annoyingjournal and see if I can find some links about the subject; if I find some, I'll post them below.
