I want a customized profile April 30, 2002 6:18 PM   Subscribe

[From the really small bugs dept.]:I was on my way to iconomy's blog and came across her user profile. It's all grey and faded. What's happened - and can I have one like it too?

Boy, talk about your grey areas, too.

That's on purpose miguel, the iconatrix likes to fiddle around with css and other design tools.

iconomy used some tags to make Matt's top menu invisible. everything's there, she just hid half of it.

It's a CSS style that overrides the default MeFi look. sawks' started it, I copied it, I think iconomy picked it up from one of us. I changed mine back to normal because hiding a span also hides the information with the dark blue background.

sure, miguel. you have to know some html, though. try this:

[div style="color: blue; background: red"] (replacing the brackets with angle brackets)

this should give your user profile a professional feel with bright-blue letters cast upon a bright-red background.

She uses <style type="text/css">*{background-color: #808080;}img,table,span{display: none;}</style>, sawks uses <style type="text/css">*{background-color: #000;}img,table,span{display: none;}body{margin-top: 20px;}</style>, and I used <style type="text/css">*{filter:gray;}span{display: none;}</style>. I just wanted to get rid of the nickname story question, and the colour was desaturated in IE 5.x and above.
