Welcome to Gaia! ::

I've been having these weird thoughts lately...


  1. Browser: Fire Fox
  2. Operating System: Windows XP Home
  3. Profile System: Old School
  4. Problem: Can't move about section while trying to add additional area. When I have anything but position: absolute then I can't seem to move the about section at all. However when I take out margin-left, I cannot add the extra 'shop' section.
  5. CSS Code (optional):
    #about{overflow:auto; overflow-x:hidden; overflow-y:auto; width: 298px; height: 476px; position: margin-left; top: 170px; left: 35px; color:#C9CDF0; font-family:Arial; font-size:10px; font-weight: ; letter-spacing: 1px; text-align: right;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-track-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-face-color: #A1273C;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #771C2C;}
    #about font{font-size: 10px;}
    #about a:hover{color: #181A2B!important;}

    #about ol{overflow:auto; overflow-x:hidden; overflow-y:auto; width: 298px; height: 200px; position: absolute; top: 542px; left: 35px; color:#C9CDF0; font-family:Arial; font-size:10px; font-weight: ; letter-spacing: 1px; text-align: right;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-track-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-face-color: #A1273C;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #771C2C;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #771C2C;}
    #about font{font-size: 10px;}
    #about a:hover{color: #181A2B!important;}

....like is any of this for real or not?
okay... i put a tektek profile in the "theme override" box, but it told me that i did not have permission to edit it. Why?
  1. Browser: Internet Explorer 7.0.5730. 13
  2. Operating System: Windows XP sp2
  3. Profile System: V2
  4. Problem: Third row no longer exists - I can not click and drag any content into it. Content that used to be in the third column has automatically defaulted to the first row after the recent update. I can not correct the problem.
  5. CSS Code (optional): non applied.
  6. Screenshot (optional):
My Profile - on my screen the third row content was put under the first row stuff. If you keep scrolling down you will see two music videos, my VJ playlist, and my house. These used to be in the third row.

Edit: the problem was my monitor's resolution. I set it to 1152 x 864 and the layout in my profile returned to "normal". The setting 1024 x 768 was too small and apparently squished everything. How odd. confused

The reason why the about ol section won't leave the About Me section is because you have a scrollbar for #about. [that code is the overflow such; just put #about {height: __px; width: __px;} instead.]

  2. Operating System: Windows
  3. Profile System: Old School
  4. Problem: My comments are messed up. o_O; They're all stuck together towards the bottom, and the text doesn't stay in #comments .caption2 and passes the borders.
  5. CSS Code (optional): This is my coding for comment .caption and #comments .caption2:
    /*comments*/
    #comments .caption{border-bottom: 0px;}
    #comments .caption2{border-bottom: 0px;}
    #comments .caption{border-right: 8px double #ffdf00;}
    #comments .caption2{border-right: 8px double #ffdf00;}
    #comments .caption{border-left: 3px solid #1a8e9f;}
    #comments .caption2{border-left: 3px solid #ffdf00;}
    #comments .caption{border-top: 3px solid #1a8e9f;}
    #comments .caption2{border-top: 3px solid #1a8e9f;}

    #comments .caption{left: 1001px; width: 140px; top: 280px;background: transparent;}
    #comments .caption2{left: 1000px; width: 140px; top: 280px;background: transparent;}

    #comments {overflow:scroll; overflow-x:hidden; overflow-y:auto; height: 250px; width: 125px;}
    #comments {position: absolute; top: 124px; left: 615px;}

    #comments .caption {position: relative; top: 50px; margin-left: -1004px;}
    #comments .caption2 {position: relative; top: -140px; margin-left: -1003px;}

    #comments .message {font-family: lucida sans; font-size: 9px; text-align:justify; color: #c9c8c8; height: 140px;}
    #comments .caption {height:140px;}
    #comments .caption2 {height: 0px;}
    #comments {color: #909090;}
    #comments .caption2 {width: 121px;}
    #comments .caption {width: 121px;}

  6. Screenshot (optional):
  1. Browser: IE (but it does the same thing in Firefox)
  2. Operating System: Windows XP
  3. Profile System: Old School
  4. Problem: The trade, add, ignore and message buttons are being really dodgy. I want the entire button to be a linking area (not just the top corner) and to change when I hover over the top, and also not to move the scrollbars weirdly when I roll over them.
  5. CSS Code (optional):

    #bar #addButton {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2drkadd.png) no-repeat; text-indent: -4000px; position: absolute; top: 280px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}
    #bar #addButton a:hover {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2add.png) no-repeat; position: absolute; top: 445px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}

    #bar #msgButton {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2drkpm.png) no-repeat; text-indent: -4000px; position: absolute; top:335px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}
    #bar #msgButton a:hover {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2pm.png) no-repeat; position: absolute; top: 445px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}

    #bar #tradeButton {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2drktrade.png) no-repeat; text-indent: -4000px; position: absolute; top: 390px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}
    #bar #tradeButton a:hover {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2trade.png) no-repeat; position: absolute; top: 445px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}

    #bar #ignoreButton {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2drkignore.png) no-repeat; position: absolute; top: 445px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}
    #bar #ignoreButton a:hover {background: transparent url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v315/sananeth/v5/2ignore.png) no-repeat; position: absolute; top: 445px; left: 634px; width:90px; height:45px;}

I don't have a problem, but I do have several questions.

1. Can I put Javascript in the profile?
2. How many flash things can I put in? does it have to be just one?
3. Do drop down menus work in the profiles?? AS well as several other flash applications..??

I'm not too well-versed in flash because I don't have the application, but I know that to use flash you would put the .swf file in your Multimedia slot. Therefore, you can only have one flash file on a Classic profile. I'm not sure how well flash files work on Current profiles. If you code a drop-down menu in the flash file, you should be able to use it.

Here are a few profiles done in flash as examples of what can be done with Gaia's system:

Thanks,
those profiles their entire thing is a flash file, I don't want all of it to be flash, i just have like certain things that I wanna put in there, so the V2 version will work just fine right? seeing as you can put more than one multimedia. :3

Thanks,
i think those are the questions i have.. hmm, and for Javascript?? and ways to protect your coding..

    Hello, I was wondering if you could help me find a way to get a midi music file to work
    on my old school profile theme?

    I want to do a midi file because I'm on dial-up and they load much easier for me.
    If I convert the file to flash or wav the file size goes from 14KB to over 1.5MB and
    that kind of defeats the purpose I was gunning for.

    Thank,
    Crimson
