3.0 Tip: Insert Image Into Signin Page

I have been remaking an old network on 3.0 and wanted to add some more style to the signup and signin pages. This tip will insert an image above the normal stuff and a few small tweaks to your network info. Animated GIFs look good too. I'm also working on the ability to insert a div and play videos instead of pictures... when I get a minute.

Add the code below to your CSS, and adjust to your needs.

Enjoy :)


/***-----About Network Tweaks---- ***/
.aboutNetwork {border: groove 2px #fff; border-radius:5px;
text-align: center;
-moz-box-shadow:0px 1px 12px 5px rgba(0,0,0,.2),0px -2px 15px rgba(0,0,0,.4) inset;-webkit-box-shadow:0px 1px 12px 5px rgba(0,0,0,.2),0px -2px 15px rgba(0,0,0,.4) inset;box-shadow:0px 1px 12px 5px rgba(0,0,0,.2),0px -2px 15px rgba(0,0,0,.4) inset;

.aboutNetwork-title {
font-weight: bold;
text-align: center;
text-decoration: underline;}

.aboutNetwork-networkIcon {
margin-left: 40%;
margin-right: 40%;
margin-bottom: 10px;}

  • Very nice; good job FT

    • Thx KOS

  • Fire-tech, this is awesome and It looks very professional. Thank you for sharing and you have a great day. :-)

    • Thanks George. You do the same!

  • I'm having a rough go getting videos to work in the same location. I can insert a video above posts, but can't seem to make it stick on signin page. Any ideas?

    Here's the quick and dirty for posts (minus the css)...

    <!-----------------Forum Ads Before ------------------>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    if (typeof(x$) != 'undefined') {
    x$("").before('<center><iframe width="100%" height="180" src=";byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;autoplay=0" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></center>');

      • NC for Hire

        time to reboot, homey!

        • Yeah, I'm still here in the shadows. Been working on other projects until Ning gets their act together again. Hope you are doing well man
          • Hi there!

            Maybe it's time to stop hiding in the shadows and come out and join the light side of the force? :-)

            Especially for this purpose, we can provide you with PromoMini package for $5.95 monthly, so you will be able to check all the changes by yourself.

            May the force be with you,

            Ning Team.
