Friendster Backgrounds HOWTO

This HOWTO explains how you can upload a background to your friendster profile and impress your friends! It's not very different from uploading to myspace or xanga profiles. Follow each step listed below.

1. Choose the background you like and save it
2. Upload your background to ImageShack.us
3. Edit your Friendster profile
4. Enjoy!

1. Choose the background you like and save it

We have tons of backgrounds on this site, both seamless tileable backgrounds and wallpapers. Browse through the galleries and check out the previews until you find one you like.

When you click on the image or press sample for desktops (1), you get a popup screen with a preview. Click on the coloured boxes a bit to see how the background works with different text colours. Found the background you like? Click on "View of download this image" or a resolution (2).

Then right-click on the image and choose "save image as..." to save it on your own computer. It doesn't matter where you save it, just remember where you put it.

2. Upload your image to ImageShack.us

It's best to upload the background to a free image hosting service so your profile is always going to work. Go to the website imageshack.us or use the form below:

  • Click Browse (1)
  • Select the image you just saved in the previous step and click Open (2)
  • Then click Host it! (3) and you're done uploading!
  • Now you will see a bunch of links. Copy-paste the link at "Direct link to image". It will look like this.

3. Edit your Friendster profile

Now the fun begins! Go to the Edit profile screen and click the second tab Customize. We need the part Advanced users where we use CSS to set the background.

body {
  background-color: #6600cc;
  background-image: url(http://FileOnImageShack.jpg);
  background-attachment: fixed;
  background-repeat: repeat;

Make sure to change the link to the URL you just copied from Imageshack. Also, if you want your background to not repeat, use "no-repeat" instead of "repeat". When done, click Save. Your background should be up and running!

4. Enjoy!

Now show your profile to all your friends and show off your cool new background! If you have any questions, just contact Serhat or Madelon on this site or email us at support AT backgroundsarchive DOT com. Good luck!
