CBox BG - Pretty in Plaid 2 by firstfear CBox BG - Pretty in Plaid 2 by firstfear
These Background Images are free for use on Deviantart Only!

->Please do not use these for anything beyond Custom Box Backgrounds
->Feel free to edit/recolour!
->Please link back to me if you use these
----------------------------------------------------------

Custom Box content with these backgrounds will look best if contained within an extra 'box'.

See my main page for examples.

See =somrat's gallery for code to create these extra boxes around your content.


----------------------------------------------------------
To use these BGs please follow the instructions below!:
1. Download the Zip folder containing all of the BG images. (Download link on top right of page)

2. Find the downloaded zip folder and unzip it.

3. Upload your chosen BG image to your Deviantart SCRAPS, along with a link back to me in the upload's description. (Failure to do this will be claiming the image as your own which you do not have permission to do!)

4. Copy the code below and paste it into your custom box.

<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat">
<img src="IMAGE URL GOES HERE"/><**/div><**/div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox">
YOUR CONTENT GOES HERE<**/div>
(remember to remove the *s from the above code or it will not work)

5. Fullview the BG image uploaded to your scraps and right click on it. Choose "copy Image url", "Copy Image location", or something to that effect. (It may be slightly different depending on your browser).

6.Go back to your custom box code and paste your copied url where it says "IMAGE URL GOES HERE"

7. Type your custom box content where it says "CONTENT GOES HERE".

8.Save your custom box!

Sorry to bug, but how do you do the "box within a box" thing?

And how to you get an image in there? (like on top of the box)

Also - uh - [link] :3

:iconfirstfear:
firstfear Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
no worries ^^. If I have an answer I'll always happily provide it.

Have you looked in =somrat's gallery as per info in the description here? :).

See here for custom box codes-> [link]

There are several variations on the extra box to choose from <3.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by 'get an image in there' though. Do you mean a secondary custom box background within that extra box? Or something more like a header/title image above the content you put within the box?

And I mean how people have a custom box full of text and a picture or two, in the box.

Use Somrat's gallery, like she said. Go to Custom Box Resources and get a box you like. Then just put the code for it IN the custom box code.

ahh yeah as it states in the description..it's hard to see text directly on these BGs. I see you've found how to do the 'extra box' within the custom box to put your text in to though.

I think I put the description correct, if not I will correct it. If I can not upload the image or anything I will delete it from my scraps.

Thanks,

Actually it looks like you didnt follow the instructions quite right^^;.

From viewing the entire Pages source code (please next time you ask someone for assistance with code..actually show them the exact code you are using and having issues with, it would have saved me time in trying to assist you here ^^;)..I found that the url you seem to be using for the background image is this-> [link]

this is not an image url. It is a webpage url :). As per the instructions in the description above, you need to fullview an image on DA, right-click the actual image and choose 'copy image location' (or something similar). All image urls need to end in an image file extension like gif, or png, jpg, etc.

So..the url for the link you were using is this -> [link]

the url for the image you have in your scraps is this-> [link]
