Background Questions

In progress Background Questions

Post by Yoshii7734 on March 31st 2015, 5:46 pm

I have no coding abilities so I can't seem to solve this background issue. Despite having checked the "background fixed" option, it still repeats. If there's a solution to this by using codes that needs to be put in CSS stylesheet. I'll need a descriptive(possibly with images) detail as to how to add it. And I have already tried altering the image dimensions, couldn't figure that out either.

One more question, as you can see the background image and the banner kind of merges. That really effects the image quality of the banner, so if that can be altered too; I'd love that.

Here's the link to the forum for reference:

Hello,
Was this image added via css or through a link in a field in the acp? Also if it is through css you can try putting
Code:
no-repeat;
where the background image is located.

Maybe this page can explain it a little bit better. http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_background-repeat.asp

Also if you have any css installed in your css stylesheet (located at acp-->Display-->Colors-->Css Stylesheet) may you post it here for us?

As mentioned I don't have any coding abilities, so this bg was put using the simple forum options. As for putting the no-repeat in the CSS stylesheet is concerned. I really don't know where to put that, so.. yeah. I know where the stylesheet is located, I just can't understand where to put this in the stylesheet.

And since I don't know CSS stylesheets, I couldn't possibly make one. Now could I? The effects that can be seen are because of a theme. I wouldn't know how to make things transparent or something like that. I'd also like to point out that my second question remains unattended (the first one wasn't resolved either).

Well, I was only asking, because just because you can't make or write the css doesn't mean you can't use made by others. I am no expert on css, in fact I rather novice, but I have a ton of css on my forum.


Anyway I aplogize, I went off on a bit of a tagent there, where in the acp did you add the image? May point out where?

I changed the forum logo by doing this:
Admin Control Panel>Display>Picture management>Simple> (Clicked the forum background image & added it).

Ok, you said were in simple mode correct? Try going into advanced mode instead, find where it says background and then you can either upload it from your computer to servimg and copy and paste the url it gives you, or copy and paste the direct link to the image in field. Advanced mode gives you more control, servimg will very likely resize it for you to fit the length of your forum so its not constantly repeating.

As I already mentioned in my original message, I've done that too. Checked the "background fixed" option to try and stop it from repeating, didn't help.

Yeah but you did it in simple mode, in simple mode you have less control, as forumotion fills in the gaps of whatever is missing. In advanced mode you have more PRECISE control, just try doing it through Advanced mode and see if it works better.

Hey,

Try adding the following css rule to your stylesheet :
Code:
body {
  background-repeat:no-repeat; /* prevents tiling */
  background-position:50% 50%; /* centers image */
  background-size:100%; /* scales image */
}
