Custom Theme Contest & Tutorial

  • There is a new feature going to be introduced to the site, custom themes! Anyone can customise their profile with CSS, but now there's going to be a contest to see who has the best style. The three top custom profile themes will be converted into site themes, free for everyone to apply to the entire site, just for them to see, everywhere!

    How to do it:

    1. Go to your profile settings, and click on Profile Style.

    2. Add CSS code into the text box to edit the theme for your profile. Like so:

     

    body {

    //Start putting things in here, like this for example
    background-image: url(http://www.dundjinni.com/forums/uploads/ProBono/AB5_Starfield_3_WebTreats.jpg);

    //End of custom things

    }

     

    Make sure to use the correct syntax. Here's a link to a copy of the current theme CSS for reference. http://pastebin.com/N3VASNxR

    3. Make a comment on this blog post saying you're interested!

     

    The top styles will be chosen on August 30th.

     

    Offensive styles will be removed, and custom profile permissions taken away, or a ban if it's severe enough. Please check the ToS for site rules.

     

    Good luck to Everyone!
