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.

When you are premium member it does fills it from the top, hiding the featured image itself.

NAkos Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
This is natural. This is for custom boxes. You should always put the content in the given code where it fits. In other widgets you can emulate the widget by puting <img src="image url" > or thumb code in the text part of the code.

This is a hack it will be never perfect.

Well you add the code to the text area of the donation poll. If the background hides the button you put several line break before the last </div> so it pushes down the button.

Hey, I was just wondering if there's a solution to this.
I have a small tiled image and I repeat it down 5 times, after I enter the code there are small spaces between each image, on my other custom boxes
it didn't do this, they copied after each other perfectly with no space to seem as one image, why would it do this and can it be fixed? o:

(The image I am using doesn't have spaces around that are transparent, I've tried it 3 times uploading it to my stash.)

Thank you.

NAkos Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I really do not know what causes the spaces disappearance. I consider them default as I always saw it like that and it comes from the sites design. But I will look in to it.

Yup. Custom box is a premium member feature and other widgets refuse to work with this method when someone is a normal member.
