    I've got a small question.
    Lately I've seen people with a shadow under their text. Does anyone know the code for that?

    It's called text shadow.

    Code:

    text-shadow: #000000 1px 1px 1px;

    Action:
    Example


    Obviously you can change the color and size of the text by changing what I've put in. Play around with that.

    Just noting that text shadow only works on mainstream browsers that support that code (eg Firefox, Safari, Opera etc..) so, if you want to make a signature that works for all browsers with text shadows, stick with images until CSS4 is properly implemented in all browsers (good luck waitin'.)

        I don't even need CSS for that. Just BBCode.

        Text over text is just line-height:0%; followed by a padding-left:3px;

        As shown here

            All applicants accepted, I shall update the list soon.

            However, it is up to both the students and the tutors to take the initiative in finding a counterpart. So if there are any tutors willing to take on another student drop them a VM/PM or post here to inform them, as for students, have a look to see -in past posts- if any tutors have open positions and possibly contact them and see whether or not they are available for tuition. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me.

              urls don't work well with background images for some reason. Might have something to do with the fact that they're in the background. Instead, just get rid of background-image completely and use good ol' fashioned img url tags. Then use "position: relative; bottom:160px;" to move the css box, that would be below the image, 160 pixels from the bottom so that it would be aligned from the top.

              Alternatively, quote this post, steal the code and don't learn a thing. Learning is for chumps. >:C

              I need help.

              I want my sig like this, with a scroll-window on top of the image.

              http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=5820028&postcount=27

              I think it's too large as it is, I need the size reduced.

              Yeah your sig is too large atm, try adding this into your code and see how it goes:

              overflow:auto; background-repeat:no-repeat;

              That'll add in a scroll bar and prevent the background from repeating. To learn more about the overflow property go here.

                Better do it quick or a mod will come with an orange sticker and slap it on your sig - It's too big (I'd hate to state the obvious ) and I just don't like the mario pic for some reason, meh, it's your choice after all

                  Hi. Can someone please help me out? I'm trying to get th box in my signature to be a bit more to the right and a bit lower. I'd also like to center the image without messing the whole thing up. Here's the code:

                  Code:
                  WonderGirl
                  Sister

                  Thanks.
                  You first add the BBcode of Center and then you use the margin-left code to change the position of the box. For example, I used "margin-left: -315px;" to move the box 315 px spaces backwards (it's a negative value).

                  Spoiler:

                  The code is:

                  [cd="width: 180px; height: 180px; cursor: crosshair; border: dashed 1px #148780 ; background-color: #d5f2ee; align: left; margin-left: -315px; margin-top: 5px;"]WonderGirl

                  [/cd]
                  [/CENTER]



                  Also, I fixed up the code. You shouldn't use capitals in the actual code; small letter are fine. Furthermore, quotes should be used after the "cd=" and a space should be after the css statement (so width:[space]530px;) and the semi-colon.

                    Negative margin-left is just margin-right. :P

                    Unless you've used margin-right in the same div already of course ;)

                    How would you guys feel about Video Tutorials? People showing you how things work on PC (CSS and such) through youtube?

                    I think that's a very interesting idea, but I don't really have the time or the skill to make the videos.
