I am not having any problems with my diary. I just wanted to ask you where it is that you go to get the background pictures that I have. I was wanting to get more, but have no idea on how to do things like that along those lines.

Thanks, Bleste

To upload a background picture from your computer, first rename the picture something unique and include your username in the filename. Then go to "Your Diary" and click "new picture" - follow the steps to upload a picture. This will create a new entry and show the picture. Once this has occurred, you can feel free to erase the picture entry if you like.

Next, "add new entry". Just below the text box is a new entry box labeled "background picture file:". Just type in the exact file name of the picture that you uploaded. Don't forget the file extension.

Once you've uploaded the background picture once, you don't need to upload it ever again. You can just type in the background file name (with extension) whenever you want to use it as a background picture.

Before uploading the picture, please make sure the name is unique and includes your username in it. If the file name isn't unique, the server will automatically change the file name and you won't be able to find it. For example one of my filenames might be called: ddwebmasterbluelines.gif

If you want to leave the background white, just leave the background entry blank.

I've uploaded a few basic backgrounds that you can use right away without having to upload your own. When you go to make a new entry you will see a list of them, with samples, just below the text box.

Ok, thanks for trying to help me. I have to be honest and say that I do not understand. And I must admit that I do have problems understanding things.

May I ask where you got the ones from that you gave me?

I have pictures on my computer, but they are all like jpgs.

Is there a website that I can go to where I can get different ones like you gave me? This way I wouldn't have to worry about changing anything.

Sorry, I don't have any specific websites that I know of with suitable backgrounds.
