Frequently Asked Questions (read this before asking)
How do I put an image in my custom box?
<img src="url of image here"/>
This code won't work!
I urge you to go through the tutorial and re-read it before asking me. It's hard for me to help you if I don't know the code you're using, and the code FROM THE TUTORIAL works if you copy and paste it and follow instructions.
How do I make the inner box without the heading?
Please see the comment I made here, which will give you an inner box without a heading area! I get like 10 questions a week on this. Edited 5.15.11
This tutorial now has been edited to include how to get your image's URL if you're using Internet Explorer! ! It wouldn't have taken me so long, but Flash kept crashing whenever I tried to export my new file. ;^; ---EDIT 2---
OHHHHHH MY GOSH.
THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH FOR A DD. oAo;;;;
I don't even know what to say!! Thank you to ^namenotrequired and `wdwparksgal for being amaaaaaaazing. I'm going to go pass out from joy!
If you have any questions at all, please ask away and I will answer!
If I don't answer your comments right away, please don't be discouraged. ;^; I kind of wish I had cleaned my inbox yesterday now that this amazing thing happened. XD
Edit: Thanks to ~missy2spencer
for pointing out a little piece I neglected to explain.
I've never used Flash before.
What was I thinking?!
I think this turned out quite well, actually. It was an amazing learning experience for me, since I've never used Flash.
This was made for #PremiumMembers
's weekly contest. This week's was: We're challenging you to think about your favorite Premium Member features and write a very short how-to or a few tips on using it!
I think the operative word was "short"...... Maybe I, err, over-did it?
But really, custom boxes are amazing, and there's not a simple, short way to really explain them! So I wanted to go in-depth...
...sorry some of this presentation is absolutely crazy. The majority of it (i.e., the first several steps) were written between 2 and 4 AM last night.
I finished it up after cleaning today.
I don't know how it's going to work, or if there will be bugs. /gulp/ So if you see anything gone awry, please let me know so I can fix it.
If you have suggestions for ways to improve this, please also tell me those!
I hope you can take something away from this presentation! If you thought all of this was fancy, check out the creator/discoverer of all of this fancy stuff, *SparkLum. His resources are on ~Backup-Lunari!!!

Hmm, I think that that's it.
