Background images (?)

Post by candie111 » Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:23 am

Hello world,

I want the background behind the forum (not the actual forum within the frame) to be an image.

I've used common.css and colors.css to try and change it. Yes, I do purge and refresh every time. Both the cache and the theme. And I have the image in the right folder, AND i'm linking it correctly. Been trying for three hours now. Is that simply not supported?

Depending on your style it may take a little bit more work, what style are you using?
