Basic HTML

Post by Zara » Mon Feb 27, 2017 1:28 pm

I just made a html guide for someone who wanted to write some things on her homepage and thought some of it might come in useful or just as a memory jogger here. :)

<br> This is a line break. It doesn't need a closing tag. Put one at the end of every line including any spaces. Use multiples to make bigger spaces, for example: <br><br><br><br> would give a 4 line space.

Basic URL:
<a href="URL link here">

Clickable url linked picture:
<a href="URL link here"><img src="Image URL here"></a>

Clickable text:
<a href="URL link here"><b>Write your word(s) here</b></a>

Add an image:
<img src="Image url here" alt="Text you want to display if image fails to load here" />

<font color=blue>This will be blue</font>
Basic colours are: silver gray black red maroon yellow olive lime green aqua teal blue

<b>This will be bold</b>

<u>This will be underlined</u>

<i>This will be italic</i>

<center>This will be centred</center>

<!-- Hidden note here -->


If anyone wants to know any other basic coding stuff just ask below and I'll do my best to add it.

adding a background to the product page? so it covers the whole page under the product images.

Tiled:

Code: Select all

<style> 
body { 
tiled

background-image: url('Put your image link here'); 
background-attachment: fixed; 
background-repeat: repeat; 
} 
</style>
Non-tiled

Center the background image, without repeating:

Code: Select all

<style> 
body{background:url("IMAGE DIRECT LINK HERE") center center no-repeat} 
</style>

if your background image is large enough to cover most of the screen, one way of forcing it to cover all the empty spaces, while stretching the image a bit when necessary:

Code: Select all

<style> 
body{ 
background:url("IMAGE DIRECT LINK HERE") top center no-repeat; 
background-size:100% 100%; 
} 
</style>
Another way of doing the same but keeping the image proportions (aspect ratio):

Code: Select all

<style> 
body{ 
background:url("IMAGE DIRECT LINK HERE") top center no-repeat; 
background-size:contain; 
} 
</style>

Zara thanks for this topic , while it is a basic thing to do this was one of my favorite parts of IMVU .
When IMVU started I spent as much time viewing others and designing my own pages as I did in any other area of IMVU .
The first thing I'd do when meeting a new user to my scene is goto see their page .
Back then it seems everyone used homepages , compared to the current times not nearly as many users design .
The blame the introduction to next and zero effort by IMVU to promote the drag and drop stickers and user
friendly designs to become the next facebook , youtube or whatever instead of the next myspace . Where alike
the new forum mess they never took it to those next levels .

Writing this and realizing all they had to do was make a bunch of new tabs dedicated to whatsoever we can imagine
and streamlining the current tabs . Instead of removing tabs and I wont even go into the settings mess .

Anyway thanks for the time as this is a great topic idea :idea:

Thank you! Homepages are probably IMVU's most under utilised feature, a free webpage for chrissakes and yet most don't realise their value. Such a waste.

Thanks for your visit to mine! It's a bit of a shambles atm as due to a blonde moment I wiped it unnecessarily to clear an issue. :oops:

Yeah I forgot to mention mine is also in the re-working status as since many years back imvu got rid of the messages tab . .
That kinda pretty much messed up my whole page design , I like to set up my pages as tutorials with links so I don't have to type
the same answers over and over in chat .
