You can check preview after you generated code. Pressing CTRL+C (or CMD+C if you are Mac user) button will automatically copy the code for you, so you can paste it in the custom box.

Mobile Users and people without Flash player


Here is the mobile version for you: customboxgenerator.nikhazy-diz…

FAQ


  • It isn't look good with featured images, ID, donation etc.  Yeah. Because this works best with custom box widget. In any other cases there will be bugs like hidden content, spaces between content and top of widgets etc. There are workarounds for these but they will be still far from perfect.

  • How to get Image URL?: www.wikihow.com/Get-the-URL-fo…

  • Background image doesn't repeat This isn't an error. This is how it is. You must use a wide and tall image to cover all the background. (Update: As from v1.7.4 it is possible to repeat image vertically.) This is not an officially supported feature, so it is far from perfect.


  • Background image doesn't fill the box horizontally It is because you use a too small image. To understand this better try to resize the window and see how the layout changes, you will see eventually it will fill it. The minimum recommended width for the image to use is 1000px. That fills the background even on bigger screens. There are no other way for this. 

  • Does this work at Groups? Not perfectly. At groups the image will push the content down. So you can use small image as header or something, but not as background.

  • I am an Internet Explorer user. I don't have "copy image url" at right click. What to do? First of all: Don't be an Internet Explorer user. It is bad for your and your computer's health. But if you want to continue to be one, you should write a comment with an URL to the page that contains the image you want to use and I will give you the image URL.
    (Update: As from v1.8.0 it is possible get IMG URL in the app itself if the image is on deviantART or sta.sh. If you still have problems comment)

  • It hides donation button. What to do? Put several line breaks before the last tag so the button is "pushed downwards". At donation polls it is a good idea to use low but wide image, so it only hides the donation amount.


  • How do I replace the hidden featured image? You put the image's :thumbXYZ: code in the text OR you use the <img src="FEATURED IMAGE URL" width="400" />  HTML tag also in the text. Where the a "width" parameter will change the width of the image and you should set it so you are happy with the result (thank you for kissingcyanide for pointing this out). Without the width parameter the image can be too big and appear strangely hidden on the sides.

  • There is a space on top of featured image widget: Set the view to "Normal view". There will be still a space at the top. But this is as close as you get. Remember the first FAQ.

    • I fixed the preview. Now the background image is centered, as the real life boxes are centered too.
  • Update v1.2: Better help text added. Thanks for Ilionej for suggesting it. :)

    element that will render content centered in the custom box.

Szia! Megtudnád mondani, hogy hogyan tudom a szöveg színét változtatni a már egyszer kész dobozban? :)
Reply
:iconnakos:
NAkos Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Szia :)

Miután generáltad a kódot ott van a "pick text color" gomb. Ott vannak a választható színek. Bármi amit a generálás után nyomkodsz ott az hatással van a kódra, szóval utána másolhatod.

Odaáig eljutottam, de nekem ugye már van kész dobozom.
És én abban szeretnék színt változtatni anélkül, hogy újra kéne generálnom a kódot. Ez megoldható?
Reply
:iconnakos:
NAkos Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Írd be, hogy .jpg a generátorba, generálj egy kamu kódot így és figyeld meg mi változik a színválasztóval a kódban. Sajnos ezt nem lehet máshogy. 

De azt is csinálhatod, hogy kimásolod a dobozod tartalmát egy jegyzettömbbe, újra generálod a kódot a kívánt színnel és abba másolod vissza a tartalmat.

Sajnos ez az egész dobozosdi egy nagy hack, nincs kényelmes módja nagyon még ezzel a progival együtt se.

NAkos Featured By Owner May 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
That is where you write your text, emotes and thumbs. And its working. You just using an image that has more empty space on the top, than the height of the custom box. The image is there. You just have to little content in it so you see nothing. Because it is a transparent PNG file.

you just need to delete "YOUR TEXT / EMOTES / THUMB' and write what you want; like heres a sample

<img src="IMG HERE" />


    This would show up as the text you want, be sure to keep the coding below though, that might be whats throwing you off
