Solved Trying to change the background image of a theme, nothing happens

Post by esti on February 20th 2014, 7:30 pm

Hi!

I'm just setting up a new forum, and am running into an issue.

I'm trying to change the background image of a theme. I went into Pic Management, and am changing the image url to an image of my own. I clicked Save, but the image on my site doesn't change!!

Here's the forum site: http://forum.jerusalemangels.org/

Can you please advise asap? Thanks!

Which background are you referring to:  the whole forum or just where the forums are?

Not sure what your question is - I'm talking about the page background for the entire forum site.

Yes. I've provided it with a link to my own picture, but it doesn't change. It also won't change if I choose one of the default images. I can't seem to figure out why!

Check your CSS:
Code:
body {
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-color: #E5E5E5;
    background-image: url('http://i57.servimg.com/u/f57/11/76/69/34/310.jpg');
    background-position: center center;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
Change the URL here background-image: url('http://i57.servimg.com/u/f57/11/76/69/34/310.jpg');

How do I edit the CSS? I've been using Pics Management so far...
Thanks!
