Want to make your Article look good?  The built-in editor is actually pretty decent but there are a few things you can do to make your Article or Blog shine.


1) Make the Article have a background picture  (the picture does not auto-size and it tiles so this is actually not too useful) This must be entered in the "Code" tab and be the first line of your document

<div style="background-image: url('/images/users/userid#/YourBackgrounds.jpg');">


2) Background image with no tiling.

<div style="background-image: url('/images/stories/backgroundpix/bgpic1.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat">


3) Make the Article have a background color.  Replace the color code with your own color as found here.  This must be entered in the "Code" tab and be the first line of your document.  The</div> must be the last item in your text.

 <div class="art-post-body" style="background-color: #f8daff;"</div>


4) Is the Article too long?  Does the Blog push all the others down?  You could use the "Read More" button below the editor to create a break and a "Read More" link.  Or you might want to use the "Read More Pro" button.  The Pro option doesn't require that you select anything but you MUST click on it before you start the Article or Blog.  There are ways to get around this for existing Articles but you have to be comfortable editing the code.  The Pro button inserts the code <div class="article">Replace this with your own text!</div> into the body of the text but it's hidden unless you are in the "Code" tab.  If you want to add this latter you have to place "<div class="article">Replace this with your own text!" in front of all your text and "</div>" as the last part of your text.
