Creating Background Color and Using Hexidecimal Colors

Background color can really add to a post and it is easy to add.

Tags are what the HTML commands are called. You always need to open and close a command. For this post's background, this is the code:

[bg width=100% bgcolor=FFCCFF][p]


  • You can't see it, but the first line of this post is the tag opening command, [bg width=100% bgcolor=FFCCFF], and the very last line is the tag closing command, [/bg]. Just copy the code and try it.

  • When you are using HTML code, put both the open and close tag in at the same time and separate them by paragraph returns to avoid forgetting to close the tag.

  • The width subcommand is telling the background color to go the full width of the frame. For some reason, it doesn't always work, so the sexyfit make it work solution is to add the [p], which is a paragraph return.

  • The bgcolor subcommand can be either the hexidecimal code for the color, in this case FFCCFF is the color used and you can see it is light purple.

  • You can also use color names, all the common ones work, brown, green, purple, blue, red, etc., and some you would not necessarily think of work, like deeppink, all one word. The command might look like [bg bgcolor=deeppink]

      Hexidecimal numbers are numbers made up using the numbers 0-9 and letters A-F. In HTML they define a color. FFFFFF is white, and 000000 is black. You can make any gray repeating two digits, ie 696969, or ABABAB.

      In the table below, the hexidecimal number gives the background color shown.

    Many colors may be found by typing "hexadecimal codes" or "HTML color codes" into your search engine. You can actually find a large quanity to choose from.

    We appreciate your post and all the information you share. We're having a bit of a problem with tags as we cannot link to the articales we would like to on other peoples pages but hopfully we'll learn. Thanks again.
