Before I die I want to .... (Virtual Moodle Reflection Wall)

Art imitates life. Specifically, simulating a "Before I die" physical wall with a Wonderwall. I don't think that this has ever been done before - combining a Facebook-like Wall with a forum discussion topic. Well, there's a first time for everything. I am 'dying' to see what you will say...I mean type....

You can access the Wonderwall here:
Username: studentscm
Password: studentscm



Think, reflect and type in your thoughts. You can also copy and paste a http://url that ends with a gif, jpg or png file to embed an image. Or you can also paste a http://youtubeUrl if you want to. Have fun with the wall! 

And here's another example of the use of the Wall. This time with larger fonts (as specified in the file wall.css).

How did I do this? 

I discovered how to add a background image to the Wonderwall.
You can do it too! Here's the embed code. You can put it inside a forum discussion topic.

<h1>Reflection Wall</h1><br /><center><iframe width="200%" allowtransparency="true" name="main" style="opacity: 1; background-image: url(http://www.moodurian.com/mod/forum/bricks.jpg); " scrolling="auto" height="1000px" frameborder="0" align="left" src="http://www.moodurian.com/wall_resource/index.php?CourseId=37&Id=1&Desc=Before I die I want to ..." marginheight="5px" marginwidth="5px"></iframe></center>

You also have to upload the image file bricks.jpg to your /mod/forum folder. The rest is magic!
