Hi, I'm Kori. I joined GASR in 2014 and have grown to love the community and people here. I'm a self taught hobby artist but I've liked to draw and paint ever since I can remember. I didn't get into using a tablet till a few years ago- and I love it. My family has always been a really big supporter in whatever I do, so I hope to continue and make it a more serious thing. I believe there's always room for me to improve so that's what I plan to do.

I'm completely new to BBCode and frankly it doesn't make any sense to me. Here are all of my questions:

1. What is the approx. width of the text area? You know, the whole box you're looking at right now to read this. What's the width of that in pixels? That will help me out immensely with making my layouts.  

2. Can you adjust margins and padding space? I'm used to <div style="padding:40px 40px"> and I'm not sure how that works in BBCode or if it even works at all.

3. Another forum I've been going on for years has HTML and basic CSS capabilities (o u don't say?) I did some pure code threads but I also like to design my layouts as an image with all the information and graphics, but I would leave a blank space for the form and then code it so that the form's text lay on top of the image and people are able to copy and paste it. (I didn't do this all the time, but people like the ease of copy+paste.) I also used the same general idea to make hyperlink buttons to my portfolio, other offsite stuff, etc. Any way to do this in this forum? We did it like either using the image as a background image, or using a negative margin to make text float on top of an image.

you can click here to see examples of the sort of thread designs i'm talking about
(you can see buttons, and where I sometimes left out space for text and/or buttons)

4. What are the coding capabilities of this forum anyway? I tried to make a border the other day using the BBCode for borders and it didn't work.

5. How do you make your layouts? Any tips and tricks for me?

Thanks for helping out on any of these questions. I'm pretty lost. Thread layout design is one of my favorite things, the design and coding of it, and I really want to continue doing what I love here.

It's pretty similar, however we use ([ ]) here.

I'm not sure if you've had the chance to look at this thread - clicky
It's pretty much got everything you need to know :)

@Unequal Oh wait... I see, so you have to use tables if you want to do any real coding. And it's just like div styles! Oh my, thank you for the link!!!! :D
