Page Background Picture Won't Change

Post by SirMagus on June 9th 2012, 2:51 am

Site: www.SirMagusMods.com

I'm in the middle of the process of revamping my site and I've stumbled across a problem I haven't had before.

I've had a red ripple/wave background on my page for a long time,
but when I try to change the background picture or even try to remove it with the Advanced Picture Manager in the Admin Panel,
Nothing happens.

The same red background stays there no matter what.

I've tried:
- Changing the background with another one.
- Completely removing it.
- Setting it to one of the Example background pictures.

I can see the change happening in the Admin Panel and in the Simple Picture Manager, but when I go back to the page the normal way outside of the Admin Panel, the background is still red.

Same thing with me trying to change the colors of the forum background colors with the "Colors" option.
They don't change how it looks in normal, but only shows up in Admin Panel.


Hope someone has a good explanation to why this happens and why I can't change it.

Thank you!

More likely it is in your CSS.
Administration Panel > Display > Colors & Pictures > Colors
CSS Stylesheet Tab

Thank you very much! But do you have any idea why it's like that?

Shouldn't it update itself or replace the previous values with the new one automatically?

If you don't know then most likely that is a theme you are using that was installed, and the creators of the theme added a background to the CSS stylesheet which is overriding pic management. So I would suggest just changing your background in the stylesheet whenever you want to change it and removing the one from pic management.
