I absolutely need to know this, too.

I have two figures that I want to be flanking either side of my forum, just like http://www.aionsource.com/forum
but to do that, you have to be able to anchor the background to the very center of the window, or the center of the forum.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Ok, I figured this one out.

Background help - aligning for ALL screen sizes OR 2 images to make the background Pictur10

You can see there, that I placed this code into my CSS area:

body {
font-family: Century Gothic, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
color: #ffffff;
background-color: #27354f;
background-image: url('https://i.servimg.com/u/f89/14/29/41/10/bgligh10.jpg');
background-attachment: fixed;
background-position: center;
font-size: 11px;
height: auto;
padding: 10px 0px;
}

And the relevant code line that needs to be added to the default is in red. This will center your forum background image so that it will correctly align to the center of your window/forum (so that if you have images that need to be on either side of your forum, flanking it, they will be in the right spot no matter the size of someone's monitor!)
