  Using Tables to Format Entrepreneur Photos

The following code can be used to format Kiva Entrepreneur profiles.  Replace each "ADD ... URL HERE" with the address of an image or page.  Replace each "ADD ... HERE" with what you want to say.  Pick and choose what you want to include. Take out a row by deleting any "tr".."/tr" line.  Add more with the "Insert Table", "Insert Table Row" and "Insert Table Column buttons."  The basics of how things will look are shown below the code.  An example is given as well.

Code:
[table]
[tr][td][img height=300]ADD IMAGE URL HERE[/img][/td][td]
[table]
[tr][td]Name: [/td][td][b][url=ADD ENTREPRENEUR URL HERE]ADD NAME HERE [/url][/b][/td][/tr]

Adding KivaFriends.org To Your Lender Avatar
- Compliments of saabnet

Some members of Kiva Friends help promote this site by adding KivaFriends.org to their Kiva Lender Page, such that it also appears under their Avatar (image) on each Kiva Entrepreneur Profile Page they support. See several examples on the 2008 KivaFriends Record Breaking Loan.

How to add KivaFriends.org to your Kiva Lender Avatar:

  • Go to your Kiva My Lender Page
  • Enter "http://KivaFriends.org" (without the quotation marks) in the City field.
  • Add your city to what you have in the State/Province field.
  • Click on the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page and you are all set to go!


edited Feb 2011 to update references & links to conform to Kiva's new lender account & profile pages.  Also, screenshot of 3 lenders on the record breaking loan has been removed, as one of them no longer has the kivafriends.org wording, and another has altered their lender image due to privacy considerations.  P

Sizing Images
Images from other web pages can be added to discussions by using image codes.  Because these images can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, e.g., too big or mismatches, the height or width of these images also can be set to fit the space or group images.

Angela Gabriela Diaz Quispe

Code:
[img]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/52404.jpg[/img]


Samina Bibi

Code:
[img]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w800/54698.jpg[/img]


Jardin Atiteca Group

Code:
[img]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w800/175165.jpg[/img]



Adding height or width settings


Code:
[img][/img][img height=200][/img][img width=200][/img]



Same height


Code:
[img height=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/52404.jpg[/img][img height=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/54698.jpg[/img][img height=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/175165.jpg[/img]



Same width




Code:
[img width=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/52404.jpg[/img]
[img width=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/54698.jpg[/img]
[img width=200]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/175165.jpg[/img]



Wide but not too wide

Elsa Cuadros Palomino's Group

Code:

Click the Pic - How to make a picture into a clickable link:
- Compliments of B. Right

Code:
[url=INSERT THE WEBPAGE-ADDRESS HERE][img]INSERT THE PICTURE URL-ADDRESS HERE[/img][/url]

Example:
Code:
[url=http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=54787&_tpos=17&_tpg=1][img]http://kiva.s3.amazonaws.com/img/w450h360/176691.jpg[/img][/url]



Now the picture is transformed into a link, that sends you to that entrepreneur's page, when you click on it.

To obtain the picture URL-address:

Rightclick the picture,
choose properties in the popup-menu,
highlight the http-address by holding in left mousebutton as you
highlight it by dragging the mouse over it.
When the address is highlighted, hold in Ctrl as you press C
(or rightclick, and choose Copy)

And of course, you paste the URL by placing the cursor, holding in Ctrl as you press V
