Solved Background image on a widget?

Post by havensgrove on September 25th 2012, 12:03 pm

So I have been trying all sorts of different codes via google and yahoo search engines to find some sort of code that would allow me to put in a background image within a widget while also giving it some transparency.

I've tried many different codes and combinations of the two but i can't even get a background image to stick in a widget to begin with, let alone try to add some transparency to it.

I've decided to go this rout rather then trying to mess with the table set up, most of the time the borders cross or overlap with one another and made it look messy. Sadly, removing the borders and adding a spacer still makes the site look just as messy.

I use a phpBB2 forum and the site is http://havensgrove.forumotion.com (if you wanted to take a look at what i'm talking about)

I'm about darn ready to tare my hair out at this point, haha, i've been fooling around with the coding for weeks now with no results. Please help!

maybe it would help you:

Code:
<DIV ALIGN="left" STYLE="WIDTH: 180PX; BACKGROUND-IMAGE: URL('YOUR IMAGE URL'); opacity:0.5;">YOUR WIDGET</div>
