Solved Placing images in background of topics?

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on March 15th 2013, 2:14 am

I've got a few images and want to try them as (opaque) backgrounds for the topics as you read a thread on a forum

Exactly as below- seen behind the text-

Can you make a single forum viewable for guests to view?

This current forum (above) I am wanting the posts to appear 'opaque' with a background pic, as with the top picture in this thread (which is from an older version of my site, now defunct).

You can add this to your css. See if that changes the background.
Code:
.pun .posthead {
    background-image: url(Image URL);
}
.postfoot {
    background-image: url(Image URL);
}
.post-entry {
    background-image: url(Image URL);
}
.pun .post {
    background-image: url(Image URL);
}

I chose a huge file, so it easily fills only the area in a post where all of the text is, but I meant if needed it to also to appear behind the avatar and header/footer.

But it's fine as it is now, I reckon. Thanks
