Mods, if this is not necessary or have been posted, you can delete it
Ok lets begin...
definitions of terms that are confusing:
I- 8 important words to know and understand
1) URL address or Direct Link - (Uniform Resource Locator) Works like your home address. This tells the location of any file on the net. (just like how your home address does). Also referred to as link, direct link or just address
a) for images - http://photos-693.friendster.com/e1/photos/39/68/32428693/1_779364561m.jpg
*take note on the last part of the address...
url address of images always end with
.jpg .bmp .gif and so on depending on the format of the image
b) for sites - http://www.friendster.com/
c) for extension files - http://h1.badwaresite.www/styker17/grace.txt
2) friendster User ID or UID - (referred also as ID or user ID) this are unique numbers that friendster members have.
This ID's can be customize also.
my ID is: 32428693
my customized id is: styker17
3)External files and extension files are the same - external files are files uploaded to any file hosting site and this files are linked to your profile using linkers...
two most used external files...
a) JS file - (Java script)
b) CSS file - (Cascading Style Sheets)
*difference of the two: JS contains codes for adding your own boxes, adding effects on boxes, and so many other...while css only handles the general style of your page such as the colors and alignments of the fonts and boxes.
4) Tracker - a js code that tracks your viewer and makes a list of your visitors. sometimes called WVM tracker (Who Viewed Me tracker)
5) onload handler - a js code that handles js codes that should be initialized when your page loads
6) File hosting sites - are sites that host files for website uses or for just storing them. File hosting site provides
the link to your file so that your page or your site can access them anytime.
7) Linker - a linker establishes a connection between your page and your file hosting site. A linker contains the the link to your file (the link i'm talking about is the url address of your external file). A linker is pasted on your page so that your page will know where your external files are and so it can read and access them.
8 ) main bar and side bar - main bar is the left column of boxes on a default format of a profile while side bar is the right column.
II- other words you should know
BTW - by the way
CBox - Chat box
encrypt - the process of transforming information to make it unreadable. Encrypting is done so to avoid the code from being ripped.
footer - the lowest part of your default profile. (you can see the copy rights of friendster there)
GIF - an image format. Stands for Graphic Interchange Format. Images in this format ends with .gif
a GIF contains a set of images that are displayed one after another does creating image motion. An animated GIF can loop endlessly (and it appears as though your document never finishes arriving) or it can present one or a few sequences and then stop the animation.
hover - the act of putting your mouse over an object on a web page.
iframe - inline frame. is an HTML element which makes it possible to embed another HTML document inside the main document.
*the the html above contains another html file which is "http://example.com"
marquee - an HTML tag that makes text scroll across the page
meettrail - the connection box. Displays your connection with the page you are viewing. You can see there how many common friends you and the page owner have.
opacity - the degree to which light is blocked. (zero opacity means being transparent)
poser - someone who acts as another person.
ripper - one who rips and uses your codes without asking permission (a very shameful act) :midfinger:
tooltips - a small box that appears when you hover a link. this box contains short information about the link
WVM - who viewed me

CO2 - Crossover2
PX - Prenster Xpansion Widget

IE - Internet Explorer
FF or MF or FFX or FX - Mozilla Firefox
Cookies or Internet Cookies -
Internet cookies are, in fact, pretty harmless. They are little bits of information your Internet browser remembers to make it easier for you to shop online by remembering the information you fill in and filling it in automatically next time.
Similarly, at weather websites, your hometown area can be called up faster because the information from the last time you visited the site is stored in the cookies.
How Cookies Work
Ever wonder how you can automatically log into your web-based email? Your username and password is stored information.
In addition to remembering personal information, cookies also remembers what websites you visit and can track the kind of advertisements you might stop and click on.
For example, if you frequently visit video game websites, you might get more banner ads for video games or gaming equipment.
