Ive been reading and trying for hours to copy and paste codes for my page and I still don't know what Im doing. I still don't understand how to copy and paste. I know how to highlight the code but then what? Click on copy? Then what when do I paste it, how do I paste it? Where do I go once Ive copied it to past it to something? This is terrible Im so frustrated.

Bambi, once the code is highlighted, you can copy it one of 2 ways...
1. right click on your mouse and select copy.
2. Press Control C on your keyboard

In order to paste the code..
1. Right click on your mouse and select paste
2. Press Control V on your keyboard

you need to paste the code in your bio fields on your account page. (go to edit profile, or modify biography and traits and scroll down to Extra Bio Fields. Paste the copied code into the body box (the right side) and make sure you put something in the left box (field name). This box could say anything, but something needs to be in this box for the code to work. The height box will determine how much space is going to be on your page between each Field Name. I use 30 when I am posting a background, as this seems to be a perfect amount of space. You'll need to leave it larger when you are posting videos, etc.

I upload images to photobucket. You will need to start up an account, then you can upload any image to it. Then it'll give you a URL code that you can use in your biofield. You may still need a code to go with it from Pawsome pages.
I hope this helps
I forgot to ad be careful of any images that have a copywrite.

If your lap is- available, I'll- be there!

The posts at the beginning of this thread are a few years old and those websites no longer exist. I see you belong to the Pawsome Pages. Their forums can answer all your questions and are up-to-date.

Photobucket website is not free too. I haven't been able to do a background too. Is there a place where you can learn how to do it easily?
