Solved Chatbox Background Image

I want my background image in the chatbox to be this: I don't want millions of it, just the one stretched across to fit!

Please help!

Not possible I'm afraid dude...

The problem is the lines of text. Each post is displayed as an overlay with text over the original image.

What you'll get is lines with text that overlap your main background image which looks really rubbish.

I could be wrong but I've spent hours trying to see if there's a way to do it.

Yes, not possible. I can see that image is fixed for a xat chat. But you can however, change the border of the chatbox.

Yes you can. Various colors need to be set to transparent.

[Examples]


Tiled/repeating background image (phpbb3)

View Full 838px 370px



Centered background image (phpbb3)

View Full 838px 370px



The Css for Phpbb2 is a little different

View Full 800px 303px


How will you view/use your chat? Full screen?
You could create a popup link for your fm chat &
make it the same size as your example (xat) pic.
Where's the background image you want to use?(link)

Excuse me, Rono, but I've been having a similar problem with my forum. I've put an image as my backround. Problem is, the text rows "block" the background in the message area. I've wondering if you can show me the CSS that removes the text rows' solid backround for phpbb2.

If you've put it up I've missed it. Sad

Use this for phpbb2 (edit: font, size, color)
Code:
#chatbox span .msg{
   background:transparent !important;
   font-family: arial !important;
   font-size:16px;
   font-weight:bold;
   }

#chatbox_members ul li {
   color:transparent;
   text-decoration:none;
   }

body.chatbox { /*Christmas background*/
   min-width: 550px !important;
   background-image: url('http://i54.tinypic.com/21b955e.jpg');
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   background-position: center center;
   padding: 0;
   margin: 0;
   background-color: #262626;
   }

#chatbox_members .member-title {
   background-color: transparent;
   }

#chatbox p {
   background-color:transparent;
   }
