Solved adding fixed image background to main page of forum

Post by itoh on January 29th 2013, 12:28 am

Hello:
Is there some way I can insert a background image to my Forum's main page? I looked in the:

Display>colors
CSS stylesheet tab

but, it is blank.

I tried to insert the following with the http of my background,

#pun-intro {
background: url("http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/14/81/40/78/bg-hea10.jpg") repeat scroll center top #183B5B;
}


but when I saved and looked at my main page, the image was not there. When I went back to:

Display>colors
CSS stylesheet tab


it was blank again.
I am a novice at all of this and hope you can help. (I do not know 'codes,' etc.)
Thank you.

You said that you clicked "save"

When working with CSS you have to click "Submit"

Try that.

I tried that and typed in the following, (with my image's http) and then clicked on "Submit":

#pun-intro {
background: url("http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/14/81/40/78/bg-hea10.jpg") repeat scroll center top #183B5B;
}

But background is still 'white' on main page of the forum. I went back and see it is still in the CSS Stylesheet (before it was blank). But as I said background is still 'white.'

What is that and where would it be listed?

In the Display I see:

Theme version phpBB3 (prosilver)

Is that what you wanted to know?

Your forum version is phpBB 3.

In your code background I believe should be background-image.

What do you mean by: "In your code background I believe should be background-image?"

I looked in:

Display>colors
CSS stylesheet tab

and it is blank.

Did that and no change to the background on main page.

This is the image I wanted to use as background on the main page:


https://2img.net/h/i1205.photobucket.com/albums/bb422/photo229/BGyinyang4.jpg

The background has to be very light at the top so that the two images show with 'invisible borders' around them.

Maybe I should just leave it as it is!
