Does anyone know how to take things off of the wishlist?

I have a question for anyone who ever may be able to help me. I frequently used Gaia Tool's profile editor since it was super convenient and a time saver when making profiles. (having duel windows for edit and preview is nice.) I'm in a bind now cause I didn't take this in account before taking a profile commission.

Is there another place like Gaia Tool's with a profile editor, or am I going to have to do this the old, long, hard way?

This is really helpful!
But I seem to be having a problem. When trying to change my background (I have v2 profile) I go to my profile, and as instructed, hit the "edit my profile layout" button. I picked a picture on my photobucket account, and after I save it, my background stays the same. It doesn't change into the background I want it to.
So I tried it another way by going into profile preferences and did the code in "theme override" as instructed. Still, my profile background didn't change.
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks!

  4. Problem: I was writing a music video code in the media section and when I clicked save the almost everything on the profile disappeared or went invisible... except for a few txt boxes and avi pictures. It won't let me undo it.

Is there any channel of communication available regarding feedback?

More specifically, Gaia currently prevents the use of > in custom css, the > character gets converted into &, which at first makes perfect sense- doing this helps prevent HTML injections. However > is a valid part of the CSS structure organisation; The > character between 2 elements in the selector means that the latter has to be an immediate child of the former- excluding sub childs that would normally be included with just a space.

If you only disallow the < character you can still completely prevent html injections, and the < character is not part of the CSS syntax and thus wouldn't cause any problems / CSS limitations.

your a:hover code is being ignored because u forgot the : between color and #6699ff
a:hover {color:#6699ff!important}

the bar is probably your #profile section
for some reason .section {background:transparent} will NOT make the #profile section transparent, you have to make it transparent in its own code

#profile {background:transparent}

Thank you a lot. The second problem was just my inattention!
That's so simple, as it came out (:

Is it at all possible to make the background stick in v2 profiles? what I mean is that when you scroll down it only scrolls the contents of your profile but the background image remains where it is.

i hope that makes sense. Thank you in advance.
