If you're trying to change the background of the main forum, first go down to your body tag and change your background as so:
background: url(images/yourimage.png) no-repeat center top;

Then you want to go down to your content tag and remove the background completely.

#content {
	background: #fff; <-- Remove whole line
	width: auto !important;
	padding: 20px 10px;
	overflow: hidden;
}

add this next to image css
background: url(images/yourimage.png) repeat-x;
background-size: 100%;
background will be scalable
