Hi, may I have a link to your forum please? Also, would it be possible to post the image URL of the background you're trying to add?

For your second question, I am not sure what you mean by the 'forum content to position like this'. Smile

Thank you. I can add the background, but it doesn't show up very well unless you make your forum content transparent as well. Anyway please add this to your CSS code:

Code:
body {
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: url("http://i52.tinypic.com/2en5ds3.jpg");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

Yes, that's right the CSS Stylesheet. You've added it, and I can see the background on your forum but the forum content is blocking most of it...

was it the theme? that's why the background can't make it?

There's nothing wrong with the theme, it's the fact that the forum content is blocking the background so you can only see a little bit of the background.

I still don't understand what you mean by desired position of the forum. Could you explain further please? Smile

hmm.
what I mean is that, I wanted the content of the forum to be place in the upper-left part of the screen, so that it won't block the text and image of the background I wanted to use... uhmm, that's it.
I hope I explain it right Confused

Hi,

You'd need to fix the photo, make it bigger so it fits. You can move it to the corner
Code:
body {
    background-attachment: scroll;
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: url("http://i52.tinypic.com/2en5ds3.jpg");
    background-position: right bottom;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

This is what you will see than http://i.imm.io/7GHf.png

It would not look good to move your forum cause of the picture. It would look bad. Put the picture in the right corner and make your forum a bit smaller, that will do.

Find this in your CSS
Code:
.bodyline {
    background-color: #040000;
    border: 1px solid #AA96AA;
}
Replace it with this
Code:
.bodyline {
    background-color: transparent;
    border: medium none;
}
