Adding background images...

(viewed 3261 times)
Ok so you've already changed your header image and chosen a back ground colour! Nice one, well done.

But you feel you'd like something extra. A background image!

below is the code you'll need to replace what you've already done! just remember to copy your URLS for your images and remember the height of your header!

body {

/* This will change text colour throughout your moblog */

color: #333;

/* change your background colour here */

background-color: #cccccc;

/* background image - replace with your own URL */

background-image: url(;
background-attachment: fixed;
background-repeat: repeat;

hr { color: #000000;}
h1 { color: #000000;}
h2 { color: #000000;}
h3 { color: #000000;}

/* header image and height */

#masthead {
height: 165px;
background: transparent url(;

/* this will change the colour of your content boxes on the right */

.contentbox {
background-color: #ffffff;

/* this will change the colour of your content box on the left */

.leftbox {
background-color: #ffffff;

.leftbox h2 { color: #000000;}
.leftbox h3{ color: #000000;}

How to make your moblog feel more like yours.

(viewed 2226 times)
in two easy steps.....

Step one:

a] Edit your profile and click the "my moblog" tab.

b] click "choose new theme"

c] select the "barcode" theme.

Step two:

a] copy and paste the following CSS code in to your "Add CSS" box

body { background-color: #XXXXXX; }

#masthead {
height: 165px;
background: transparent url('');

This will allow your to change the background colour and the header image. Please replace the relevant parts with the URL of your own header image and choice of colour.

where #XXXXXX = your colour.

The dimensions for your header should be 760px x 165px. If you don't have your own webspace try using for free...

Have fun and be creative, you can alter the height of your header by changing the 165px value in the #masthead part of the code to either a larger or smaller number. Remember to create your header image the same size though.

Good luck.
