Tech Tips for Annie

Okay, Annie, this is how I created the leopard background for Kok Hon's blog. It is actually a downloaded graphic tile which is repeated in different areas of the screen. The background tile graphics are easily available. Google it.

  1. Firstly, you must know I am using the Minima Black scheme.
  2. Therefore, I need to populate TWO areas on the blog layout with that tile. If you look carefully, you can see there is a slight distorted tile area to the left and right of his chicken banner. This is the second area, #header-wrapper. The main area would be the body.
  3. In my Layout, I go to the Edit HTML tab.
  4. I ADD this line background-image:url(http://photobucket.com/annie/tile.jpg); to the attributes of the body and the #header-wrapper area. **DON'T FORGET THE CLOSING SEMICOLON ';'
  5. I assume you understand what the above means.
Umm, that should be about it. Please save your layout before you do these modifications.

sounds easy enough. the hard part is figuring out what to put in there. i like my white background...and sometimes i don't. fickle woman!

K.K. said...

fickle woman, why not try style-switcher? it's a script to have ur background color changed instantly with a click!

but having that installed on ur blog is much more troublesome than Jonzz tutorial. heheh...

COOL! It doesn't sink into my brain yet, but I am sure it will click in my head once I start it.
I will definitely SAVE a copy of my template. It's got a lot of crap on it.

Like ME says, I will now search for a perfect background! SO COOL! I'm so excited. Should I test it now? mmmm... or make dinner?

Thank you GOBS Jonzz!!!

me said...

k.k! hey! you can't just stop there!! tempting me with such a cool thing and then tell me it's un-do-able for ppl with ordinary non-IT brains like fickle woman. then again, won't i be able to do the same thing by going to the page layout and click on the colour for the background? it's just a few more clicks.....unless you mean my readers get to see different backgrounds with just a click...now! that's cool!

K.K. said...

me, that's exactly what i meant. readers get to choose what colour they like. u can check out my blog here if u like, the color options are at the left sidebar.

looks like Jonnz comment is turnin into a "Blog Backgrnd Forum" edy! LOL!

Las montañas said...

Jonzz said...

[wuching]: What do you mean??

[me]: I suggest a nice simple gray design at one of the corners like a maple leaf.

[k.k]: Wah, after ME wallop you then you know. Only she can call herself names, you know (He he he he he he)

[PB]: Sheesh, I thought you guys started this. How would I know?

[sam]: Don't worry. Annie's a pro. She just wants the Jonzz Quick Reference Guide *RUNS BEFORE ANNIE COMES*

[baby's breathe]: LOL, of all the comments here, this one is so out of place, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

[m5lvin]: ROFL. one day I'll quote your phrase. Is it copyrighted?

[annie]: I just have one thing to say. What is GOBS?

[me and k.k]: Wah, having a forum here. Actually, I didn't expect any comments for this post. LOL!

[LM]: Here's your running shoes. Now RUN before Annie catches you!
