Default Unanswered: Ok I give up and need help!

I have been trying to customize my page for a month now.

No I am not technical or savvy with computers.

However I see everyone with these beautiful profiles that I think.........gosh I could do that!

WRONG!

I have loaded pics into my albums. I followed the information STEP by step listed here in WI.

Here is what it says.



Argh I have tried different pictures and images and graphics. to no avail.


Is there someone that can go over how to pretty up my profile step by step???

I am not smart on the puter. so it has to be really step by step!!!!!!!!!!!

I could not even put a color on there. *sigh*


I am using Firefox.


Thank you to anyone who can help!

I am not sure if this is even mentioned anywhere on WI, but my own experience of the "Main has invalid properties: Background Image" message tells me this:

The customization page does not accept the URL that WI gives you when you view a picture; each picture used to follow a different URL and now it is programmed differently. The old version has an album number and a picture number in it, while the new one uses the names of the albums and pictures which is NOT accepted in the customization page (at least not for me).

So what you need to do is find out the album number and picture number of the picture you want as a background, and put it into this URL form:

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...e.php?albumid=[insert album id here]&pictureid=[insert picture id here]

(ignore the hyperlink - I can't get rid of it! Although to see the whole thing minus the "..." in the middle, click it)

THAT is what the customization page accepts.

To find out the album and picture number, you will have to click "Edit" on the picture you want to use and the URL will then show those two numbers. The address of the picture should end like this:

albumid=[album number]&pictureid=[picture number]

So you can copy and paste that text from the address bar and it can go directly in the form mentioned above. Type the final http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...e.php?albumid=[insert album id here]&pictureid=[insert picture id here]" form in the bar for background image and you should be all set.

Default Re: Ok I give up and need help!

When it comes to pictures I have found it was easier to save the pictures from other places to my computer and then upload them from my computer to WI. That way I avoided the whole URL thing and WI created its own URL location for the photo at that point.

Oh I was going to mention to that the pictures have to be uploaded into your profile album first. Then you go to the main section and grab them from the album to put in for your background.

In the album section try uploading photos from your computer. Don't use urls...let WI set the url for a photo directly from your computer. Its easy from there and you won't have any problems.

You can PM me and I can try to help you.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems and I'm not an expert with computers or anything... But I have Firefox too and it works just fine. Maybe you could try an updated version of Internet Explorer. Here is the link for Internet Explorer 8 (the newest version)
Internet Explorer 8: Home page

Or when you try to put the background up make sure that you have it in a Profile Album. Then click on the little picture that looks like this --> Click the image to open in full size. and then click on the picture that you want. It should show up

If you have anymore questions then feel free to PM or VM me. Good luck!

Chipmunk is right but you have to change the images that you have saved in your album to profile like the pic shows below. Edit album, click on Profile, Then click submit. Then follow what chipmunk says about the little film pic image selector.
Click the image to open in full size.
