Okay so I have a lot of questions because I am pretty new to this kind of stuff.

1) Does anyone know how I could make a link to other things such as "Add" , "Message" , and "Trade"?
2) How do I resize and change the color of links? I can resize regular font but not links
3) How do I make it so everything on the page stays in place no matter what the size of the screen is?
4) How do I make my youtube player a little box with the play button on it?

If anyone doesn't understand my questions then just ask! heart

Tell me what you think c:
  1. Use the drop menu on a profile or in the forums, copy the users add link and replace the UID (user ID). For instance if you copy mine, you will see add/(num) you would replace my UID with your UID which you can get from your profile URL in the address bar.
  2. a {font-size: 15px; color: red;}
    adjust accordingly.
  3. #columns, #texts_decoration, #pictures_ decoration {
    border: 1px solid red;
    left: 50%;
    margin-left: -512px;
    position: absolute;
    width: 1024px;
    }
    I have included a border so you can see the width of the area. As long as you stay within the left and right border it will be in the same position on every screen, but after that you'll want to remove it unless you want an ugly red border.
  4. .media_panel {padding: 0; margin: 0;}
    .media_panel h2 {display: none;}
    .media_panel object, .media_panel embed {height: 25px; width: 30px;}

AHH YOU ARE AMAZING!! Thank you so much! emotion_kirakira
Although, I think im having some issues with # 3, Even though it is within the red border, it still moves on a different screen size. I added in the height, but how do I make it start from the top?
If you don't understand what I am saying then I left the red border up so you can see what's going on

Actually, I think I might have worded # 3 wrong. I pretty much want the pictures to be glued to the background, so everything is properly placed when someone has either larger or smaller computer screen. sorry about that D:

I did my links all in this kind of format so where would I put the: a {font-size: 15px; color: red;}?

I think it'd be cute if you used like bannedstory to make maplestory persona's instead of blurry resized avatars.
You could also make your own background with NPC's and mobs too.

I know you're using that red border with support from the person above but it's really distracting and an eyesore.
When you have everything situated with that border, be sure to hide it using border: none;

sorry I'm such a noob

For the problem with the pictures (#3 on the original post), it's not working because apparently Gaia killed Knight Yoshi's code... For the selectors, change "#columns, #texts_decoration, #pictures_ decoration" to "#columns, #texts_container, #pictures_container"

For the links, put that CSS he gave you into the theme override box (same place as the rest of the CSS)

Trade links don't work because they have an ampersand ( & ) in them, and those don't work in the links you can put in with BBCode. You'll have to put the link through a URL shortener (bit.ly, tinyurl, etc) and use that instead.
