Well, you can always use CSS to make the image fit well, however, it's really up to you.

notice that whats in the center is hidden by the fourm its self. Prety neat huh. I mean any size could work with any forum. I dont think their is a recommended size. You can always change the color off background via CSS if you worried about the size looking bad.

Well, when makinga BG, you would want to make sure it looks good repeated. That's because you background may not fit the whole screen and may be repeated to fill up space.

That depends on how you want the image to show? tiled, one piece, Only problem you will encounter is if you're adding an image on two sides that need to be centered, with all the different monitor screen sizes it will get screwed. I've seen it happen before.

Your current background image is only 32 X 32 pixels and repeats itself.

That's the problem. Not all screen monitors are the same resolution, so it might will work with one size but might not work with another. As far as teaching you CSS, sorry, we can't help you here. As this is a Graphic Request Section. If you want to learn CSS try a site like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. At this time I'm closing this post as this is not a graphics request.

Post Closed.
