I have been getting many emails from my readers (who read my about me section in Orkut) about how to write colorful letters in orkut profile and scarps?
We had thought that this is a small thing that almost everybody using orkut will be knowing. But to our surprise many people wanted to know about it, so here we go:-
Scraps to friends
Now, you can paste in photos, videos, audio, and flash widgets in scraps to your friends. Here’s how:
Copy and paste urls ending in .jpg, .gif, .png or .bmp and the image will appear in the scrap.
for example, http://example.com/example.jpg
- Add videos from YouTube:
Copy and paste the url and the video will appear in the scrap.
for example, http://youtube.com/watch?v=videoid
- Add podcast/audio:
Copy and paste the url of an audio file and an audio player will appear in the scrap.
for example, http://example.com/example.mp3
- Add html-embeddable objects:
Create or upload your content at sites such as photobucket.com, imageshack.com, rockyou.com or slide.com. Copy and paste the html embed code to share it with your friends.
Scraps to everyone(See below image for the symbols)
- To change the font color of your text, type the name of the color you wish to use in brackets.
- To show an emoticon, type the key shown above for each emoticon in brackets.
- To make text bold, italic, or underlined, use [b], [i] and [u] accordingly.
- To make a word a link, use [link]…[/link]
Ex:- [ColorName]Your text that you want to see in red color[/ColorName]
[red]Text will appear in Red, in Orktu[/red]
I am [red]feeling[/red] [b][i]lucky[/i][/b] ! [:)] –> I am feeling lucky !
[link=http://www.orkut.com]orkut[/link] –> orkut [http://www.orkut.com]
[link]http://www.orkut.com[/link] –> http://www.orkut.com
These are some of the basic things to make your scraps and about me section of Orkut colorful and attractive. And if you like any thing in someothers scarp book or about me section and you have no idea of how to do it, then you can just select the whole thing, drag and drop into your scrap book[Not recommended. Do something creative yourself]
