Throwing this coding cheatsheet in the mix.


Is it possible to open an image in the background?? I have tried all codes for the same but it is not working…help…anyone???


What do you mean? Open an image in a new tab when someone clicks on it?

You can try wrap an <a> tag around your <img>. By default it should open the image in a new link if the user has the “Open all external links in a new tab” option enabled on in their settings (enabled by default).

Edit: And your image must be uploaded from another website.

Settings Screenshot


<a href="">
  <img src="">


Not that, I mean can I open an image in the background and place text over it??? like in this case there is a gray background, Is it possible for me to write over an image instead??


Try using the background-image: url(’’); property. Here for more information.


<span style="font-size:; display: block; width: 350px; height: 150px; background-image: url('');">
  <span style="font-size: 50px; display: block; width: 100%; text-align: center; line-height: 150px; color: red;">

Help Making An Image as a Background?



keren. tapi sebenarnya ane gak faham


I tried resizing how you do it but I still can’t get it to work, idk what I’m doing


I presume you copied and pasted the code directly from their post however they’ve escaped their quotation marks which means you have to replace the quotation mark character “ with " instead (see below).

<img src="" width="500px" height="500px">


thank you!!


Does any coding work in the ABOUT ME section on I see it puts special characters in HTML but you can’t input HTML? I’m not learned in this so I’m a little confused.


Yes, anything which is available for use in a forum post also words for the “About Me” section in your profile.


I can’t seem to get any to work


Try pasting this into your “About Me”:

<span style="font-size: 1.5157rem; display: block; width: 100px; height: 100px; background: gray;">Test</span>
What it should look like
