Solved Forum BG

Post by thebigredmonster on October 27th 2011, 2:49 am

I set an image as the background for my forum. However, the posts are difficult to read since they are straight on the background. Is there any way I can put some kind of colored box behind the text in posts, in front of the background?

You're probably xy repeating which will cause an issue, or your posts don't have a background color.

If you can leave here, or PM me a link to your forum i'd be able to help you.

Its a form of coing and styling. Which can be found in ACP> Display > Pictures and colors > Colors > CSS Stylesheet.

Okay, it's working, but it's only showing up behind the text. Is there any way to make it go behind the whole post/topic?
