background pic wont change

Post by ShinGamix on March 4th 2012, 5:01 pm

Hello.
I am ShinGamix and I run the ShinRPGMaker forum
I am trying to change the appearance of my forum background, due I have had a custom theme for so long I went to pic management and replaced the "non" url with the pic I wanted. It loaded and saved the pic in management, but my forum looks exactly the same. I was guessing this was a coding issue because my present background has three to four css colors that fade and make a nice design. I don't want to change the whole style of my forum, I was just trying to bring some fresh light to it. or would it be better just to leave it alone since I don't know what I am doing?

Hi!

Try to add in your CSS Stylesheet this code, and don't forget to click Valid after this:
Code:
body{
background-image: url(IMAGE_LINK);
}
Replace IMAGE_LINK by link to the image. Wink

Oh goodness I did something wrong. I did this and it did replace the forum background, but it also changed the main area to something awful and it won't restore. YIKES!

Oh thank goodness, it finally restored. Any thoughts on why it changed the other colors as well and not just the background image?
