Editing the Background image problems

Post by Annieone23 on November 10th 2010, 12:40 am

Hi, when I edit my forums background image, either within the admin panel or within the actual CSS itself, it always reverts to this random image called Misconstrue_-_Image_1.jpeg

When I change the url within the admin panel to my photo it appears to work and the preview displays the image, yet when I enact the theme and load up my forum all the new changes have been made except for the background image, which is now the miscontrue jpeg.

This was annoying and unprecedented so I went into my forums CSS through the admin panel and attempted to change the background image url yet every time i try and submit it i receive an error. I figured I was doing something wrong so I went to my current theme and checked the CSS of that. I clicked submit for the CSS without making any changes at all, and it said there were errors and it did not work. This is for the theme I currently am using, and works perfectly on my forums. I made sure it wasnt by any fault of mine in my recent days of messing with the CSS by reverting to a backup of the theme from a month ago.

So basically I need some help editing the background image for my forums and i need some help compiling my CSS so it works properly.

Im more than willing to post screenshots or snippits of the CSS if anyone wants to see. Also I have dreamweaver (just recently acquired) but I wasnt able to find a way to compile the CSS myself and debug it through that. If anyone knows of anyways to check my CSS for errors to fix that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Also would need to know what forum version you're using.
