Things that aren't templates but lots of people need help with



Coding is difficult for new people, so I will give an example of the code box at the top of my page:

{| style="background-color:#FFFF00; border:1px solid #CCFF00; padding-right:3px; padding-left:3px; padding-top:3px; padding-bottom:3px; -moz-border-radius: 1em;"  -webkit-border-radius: 1em;" align="center" width="100%"
| style="text-align: center;"|

Welcome to my out-of-date user page. This is under construction, so don't be surprised if you see a big mess. :P

My links:

[[/Testing area/]] | [[User: YatzSliversword/Template tutorial|Template tutorial]]

|border-width = 0
|border-color = yellow
|info-background = orange
|logo-background = lime
|logo-size = 20
|logo-color = black
|logo = SUP
|info = Read this to recieve a frying pan in the face. :D}}

That is your standard box. You can change the color and border to whatever you wish.

Drop Boxes:

People have trouble with drop boxes, so you have this:

{|class="collapsible collapsed" style="width: 50%; border: 1px solid black;"
Me as a cat
|affie = ThunderClan
|pastaffie = None
|postdeath = StarClan
|namest = Kit:<br>Apprentice:<br>Warrior:<br>Deputy:<br>Leader:
|familyl = Whitetail<br>Fireflight<br>Featherfall
|mentor = Robinfeather
|apps = Seedpaw,Woodpaw
|image = Birdstar.leader.Request.png}}

And that becomes this:

Note: If you are cop/pasting these codes, you can take out my stuff and add your own words and stuff.

Floaty thingies:

Floaty thingies are the boxes seen on the sides of the page that follow you as you scroll down. Code:

<!---- Begin Floaty Thingy ---->

<div style="position: fixed; middle: 0px; right: 0px; padding: 3px; background: #00FF00; border: 1.5px dotted yellow;"><b>Your thing:</b> Insert here!</div>
<!---- End Floaty Thingy ---->


Current Task: Update my user page.
