Hi guys

I wish to make this picture (link below) my wallpaper background on my forum. Any ideas how to do it as i have tried to put this address in the background box on the container option. Have done a screenshot

https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31...0396_o.jpg

thanks for any help in this matter
Try Theme Global > body > Background.

And add this:

url(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31...0396_o.jpg)
Here is the code I have under Advanced:

background:url(Your image address here) no-repeat center center fixed;


I put my images into the images folder on my host and within the "images" folder.

Let us know if you figure it out.
Have tried both methods but are still getting the default white background

You probably want to download it and host it locally, assuming there are no copyright issues, of course. It's currently on a Facebook CDN server and if the owner deletes it or changes their sharing permissions, it may vanish.

Hey red, did you figure it out?
Hello redblood,
what you are trying to do is very easy,
go to: ACP-->Templates&Styles-->choose your template-->global.css
in the first row you will se that:

body {
background: #fff;  
color: #333;  
text-align: center;  
line-height: 1.4;  
margin: 0;  
font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;  
font-size: 13px;  
overflow-y: scroll;
}


change it to that :

body {

background-image: url(http://i.imgur.com/7hpIIn9.jpg);  
background-repeat: no-repeat;
color: #333;  
text-align: center;  
line-height: 1.4;  
margin: 0;  
font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;  
font-size: 13px;  
overflow-y: scroll;
}



Good luck man.
I asked something similar here. And I still think I'm getting more whitespace than I want.
