Not Solved [How To?] Make Boards Look Different Depending On Category

one of the categories needs to be different from other categories.
as suggested in post #4 that category needs to have unique ID &
its contents display can be changed through css style changes

suggestion is to follow this method (please do not replace codes blindly)

When I go to my theme's CSS and create something such as:

#forum_cat_76 { 
	background-image: url('https://i.imgur.com/NDH5ezp.jpg');
	background-size: cover;
	background-position: center center;
}

The Category does not change or appear any different from the rest. I'm sorry and feel like everyone is getting annoyed with me... I do appreciate all of the help. I probably have the CSS wrong.

Furthermore, I'm not even sure this is going to achieve what I want as I want the forums themselves to change, not the categories.

URL to my site: http://saryndil.net/index.php

I am using a theme that I created myself.

I was able to get the #forum_cat_ID# to work in the CSS, however that won't allow me to give categories different tables depending on ID.

I was able to get the different theme for forums to work, but not on the Index page, which is where I want them to appear different. If you look at the boards under the Test Board ( http://saryndil.net/forumdisplay.php?fid=77 ) they appear different than what is on the Index page.
