This little app generate Custom Box Background code after you provide an image url to it. This is the easiest way to get HTML code that makes your profile look awesome.

Tutorial video: youtu.be/WNnUhSB6QPQ

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.

FAQ


  • 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.
  • 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. 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 down". At donation polls it is a good idea to use low but wide image.

  • 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.

I've found a bug;
I've just now loaded and the image is quiet small plus it was only half way. Any ideas why this is happening?

In the preview it can happen when it fails to keep up with the speed of new versions of flash. (and I have no way to fix that these days). On the actual box the image always becomes slightly smaller, I have no control over that, it depends on deviantART's layout and design (as we use other parts of deviantART to emulate this behavior, when thos things are changed our result changing with it).

Because Steve Jobs hated Adobe so not any of the iDevices have flash player on them.
