Making a Free Guild Website Part 2 – Making the background Purrrty


Adding Other Graphical elements to your Guildportal Website Is easy,   You just need a place to host the image. Unless you pay for membership, then you can host it on Guild portal.

Your Photobucket account can be used to host these images. 

I’m going to show how you can add a background image to your Guild website to further personalise it and make it stand out

The Background.

if you go into your Guild Control Panel, on the left hand side select “Site Pages” scrolling down you will see “Page Background”
You can keep the background colour that is there by default or change it to any colour you want by selecting the Artist Icon, this could look quite plain, to liven it up add an image, it can be anything but I would suggest that you keep in theme,
Somethings to be mindful about the image you pick
Use either Screenshots from Wow Eg like a shot of the sky, or a texture or scene in game you like, or have a look on Warcrafts Website for wallpapers and other promotional material, that under their creative commons agreement allow you to use, rather then potentially breaching copywrite by nicking someone elses image,
The image you select will be tiled, meaning that it will be replicated across your page, like floor tiles, this can make the background look crap if its busy, or there are incomplete things on the sides of the image, I’ve picked a simple shot of the sky, that fits with my reddish theme yet still has some texture. Upload a couple of images to Photobucket to use, and you can edit, and crop or change the colours as you see fit using their Image Editing tool.

To add the background to your Guild website use the “Direct Link” that photobucket provides you, and copy it, then paste that link into the Blank field that is next to “Page background Image”

Then go to your Website and Refresh the page to allow the new image to upload.
If you don’t like it, try another,
This is what the guild site looks like so far – while it may not win any design awards, its a start
