Background Image/Colour - vpflsuarez - 2015-04-03

Im currently trying to change the background for the whole site to one image

http://p1.pichost.me/640/27/1502320.jpg

But even when i change the colour codes in the global.css the background does not change

can anyone help me im new to mybb but i know the basics on css.

Site:http://vpfl.club/forum/
Version:1.8


RE: Background Image/Colour - .m. - 2015-04-03

you can add the background image to #content in the global.css (edit through admin panel & edit in advanced edit mode)
#content {background: url("http://p1.pichost.me/640/27/1502320.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 #252525;}

Thanks is there a way to get the background of the logo to change aswell

When i change the logo background it takes the background off the rest of the site

^ you can try adding the same image as background to #container (through global.css)

Edit: actually adding background to #container should be sufficient
#container {background: url("http://p1.pichost.me/640/27/1502320.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 #252525;}

Yes that has worked thanks

One last thing it keeps repeating itself the whole way down the page like 10 times, is there a way to stop it


RE: Background Image/Colour - .m. - 2015-04-03

^ well, background image needs to be large enough to cover most part of the page (like desktop wallpaper)


RE: Background Image/Colour - vpflsuarez - 2015-04-03

there 1920 × 1200


RE: Background Image/Colour - .m. - 2015-04-03

^ you have to upload that image to your forum files server & use it so that full size can be utilized for background image
