thanks, I realized how to do it after playing around a bit. Got confused with the embed and source stuff, but eventually this monkey managed to peel the banana.

Hey guys

I want to insert music, and the previous threads regarding this did not contain anything that worked, e.g.:

(The scripting validator kept saying "did not recognize <)

I am not a scripting expert; I know very little. Can someone give me the script I need to insert AND where this must be inserted. Help would be greatly appreciated!

And yes, I will not bombard the reader with music, there are links where you can choose with or without music. 

Thanks !

Hey guys

I do not think I have seen GIFs in the storygames I have read. I want to include 1 or 2. What is your opinion regarding GIFs? And I want to be sure that other readers will be able to see it

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer on 5/15/2015 9:46:35 AM

Yip, I get that thing about people saying he was stupid doing what he did. I watched the movie with my parents and I had to endure "He is crazy/not normal/stupid story" comments every 5 minutes. People from previous generations are very conservative in their viewpoints and life philosophies, primarily because of their social and political structures at those times. Even where I live (South Africa) we were indoctrinated with the aphorism "werk, trou en kinders kry", which means "work, marry, get children", and if you stray from that path you are not deemed fit for normal society and frowned upon. That is why McCandless's views are so controversial, but fundamentally I tend to agree with him. Especially after I read Walden, which later inspired me to read Krakauer's book. Great story, and if I had half the courage McCandless had I would be a very happy person. 

(And if Eddie Vedder's "Society" is playing - and I get a bit too overwhelmed by commercialism and greed and all the other rotten fruits of society - who knows, I might book a ticket to Alaska and enjoy being immersed in raw Nature!)

Thanks! But I am confused with scripting (hence Newbie Central), so can you clarify where I need to input the script? Is it at the script icon (which is next to the variable +- sign)  next to the link I want to change, or where? And when I insert the script it is not valid, the ul part before the {brackets}.

So say I want the link (e.g. "Start Story") in the center, gold color, with no bullet, how would the scripting look exactly (I copy it from your message) and where do I put this in?

Many thanks for the help!

How do I put links in the center of the page? And change their color?

Thanks for any help

Yip, with 


page 4 will retain its own background, but say I want also for page 7 to retain its own background, how do I do this for page 7? This what I do for page 4 and 7 but it is not working, in global page script:



What should I type in global page?

I hope it makes sense ...

I've tried but the global script is overriding the individual ones?

Fitting the background picture on 5/12/2015 7:14:26 AM


I know how to prevent the global page script background overriding one page's (e.g. page 4) unique background with 


but how do I do this for another page(s) with their own backgrounds? E.g. I want page 4, 7 and 164 to have different backgrounds regarding the global background.

Do you perchance know how to do this?
