A few months ago I had a crazy idea for my profile here in Proz. I was learning about all kinds of neat things that I could do with HTML and thought to myself, "it sure would be cool if I could add some of this stuff to my proz profile!" I've been playing with some different techniques since then, trying to find out just how much proz would let me add in regards to codes, and I finally have something that I'm happy with.

Please take a look and tell me what you think.

^_^

Very nice Jun 18, 2014

Wow, it looks great! Nice design and nice initiative. I didn't know proz allowed you to do so much with html.

Good luck

Thanks! Jun 18, 2014

It took a while to figure out, because there are more limits when compared to something like a website. Essentially what I made was the same thing that you see in those marketing emails that come with pictures and links, etc.

Thanks again! Jun 19, 2014

From a technical viewpoint, everything there is really simple, the trick was getting it all to work together inside my profile. If anyone is interested in doing the same, I can put together a quick guide and links to some tools similar to the ones I used, only free.
