snipets of code for use

I'm currently trying to get my smugmug account setup and it would be nice if there was a section on the help page with snipets of code that could be used for the header and footer sections.

That way someone could just copy and past the different sections they would like to include right in. The help page could instruct a person to change from a generic <YourAccountName> to myaccount

Just a suggestion.

    One of the problems with this is that any bit of code we place in the help section will need to be adapted. Because every page is different, there is no such thing as universal code. If you want to put a banner image on the site, you can use fairly generic code, but it needs to be adapted to use the correct img url, height and width. If there was a truly universal bit of code that most people wanted on their site, we would love to place it in our help sections. We just haven't encountered anything like that, though the closest is the banner code we have put in there as an example.

    And a quick tip for something that is a little more obscure to figure out on your own... if you want to change the background color for your page, insert this code into the stylesheet section:

    Body {
    background-color: #FFFF66
    }

    You can find the hexadecimal code you want for the color you want here:

    Good luck!
