Custom Images

In this section, you can upload and manage custom images for your profile. In order to use the custom images you must select to use custom images in the default settings for this profile. However, we do recommend that you use the more functional Custom Sections instead.

Here you will see space to upload several different images created in an outside photo editing program. It is up to you which ones you choose to customize. Following is an image that gives a general idea of the positioning of each item that is described in the table below.

The header1, header2 and header_bg images make up the top portion of your design. Although the dimensions are not predetermined, it is a good idea to keep the header portion under 150px deep. The width of each image is up to you, however, keep in mind that the header_bg file will form a reapeating background of the entire header section.

Variable The footer1, footer2, and footer_bg images make up the bottom portion of your design. Similarily to the header section, the dimensions are not predetermined.

You can place images at the top and bottom of the left sidebar as well as in the bottom right hand corner of your design. It is best to keep the sidebar_top and sidebar_bot images to the same width as the Sidebar Width in the General Settings of your profile.

menu_arrow

No

< 19 x 19

The menu_arrow image is used for each menu item appearing in the main menu when using a standard menu. Depending on the width of your sidebar, you will probably want to keep this image relatively small to allow larger menu items.

nav_title
nav_title_end

No
No

Variable

The nav images are used before and after the page headings for each page. They can be any size you desire, but keep in mind that the page title will be placed between these images, so wide images and long page names may cause the nav_title_end image to appear on a new line.
