Either what he said or do it the more complicated way and put it in your CSS
Code:
body {
  background-image: url('URL TO IMAGE');
}

Thank you. I looked there and that is the way it entered. I wonder why it is not showing. It was showing when I first began the forum.

No, not showing even though image is entered and when I place it in the browser address bar, it does show and that is why I said I don't know why it is not showing.

I had the same problem. The background wasn't showing up, because the picture was too big I guess. Anyway go to ACP > Display > colors > CSS stylesheets and copy/paste the code which blindbat said above, just put the url of the image in the right place and click save.

I had kinda the same problem but opposite, I had taken out the URL but the background was still there? I just had to put in a new image and remove it. LOL

Try this:

Code:
body {
background: url(link of image);
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
outline: 0px;}
