In progress My background isn't showing up?

Hi! I've set my background page to here: http://www.simprograms.com/wp-content/themes/mystique/images/header.jpg

But at my website: simdocumentaries.niceboard.com

it doesn't show up. In the preview section in display it shows fine, but the actual website it's black.
I even uploaded it to my root folder and it still is just black! The format is .jpg it should work.
This is what I set am I doing it right?

Its not working because http://www.simprograms.com/ is not a picture host. You are trying to hotlink there background and there server doesn't allow it.

create a free account here http://photobucket.com/ and upload your own background to it then copy the link under the picture.

Where exactly are you adding the background address to your forum? Are you going to pic management?

Yes I'm going to pic management, advanced, background (page), and adding "http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/12/36/68/header10.jpg" my root image as the URL and I also tried the photobucket one https://2img.net/h/i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk67/Emoxchick910/header.jpg.

None of them worked. I pasted the URL in the box that I showed in my first post.

I also unticked background fixed and ticked it again, nothing.

I think the answer might be going into your CSS stylesheet and adding the picture URL in the RIGHT place in the stylesheet. That is how I added my background. But you have to be very careful to put it in the right place. I won't tell you where because your stylesheet might be different than mine.

Okay, thanks. I'll try that and look how to alter the background image via CSS.

Hi,

The background of your forum can be found in AP > Display > Colors > CSS and this part:

Code:
body {
    background-attachment: scroll;
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    background-image: url("http://illiweb.com/fa/m/background2.gif");
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-family: Trebuchet MS,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size: 10px;
    height: auto;
    padding: 10px 0;
}

It's this image:


All you need to do it change this photo link http://illiweb.com/fa/m/background2.gif with yours background.
