Trying to put a background in the default skin, no making out to good, what is the trick..

Start from where the images are stored, do I need a new file or slide them in one of the other files..


Right at the top of the index.css file you will see this:

Under that at the top add this:

background:url(https://www.yoursite.com/image.jpg) #0C3E61;
That should be what ya want. ;)


You can change this to whatever color you want


Linking from Photobucket and just show a dark background, I want to image to show..

<img src="http://i356.photobucket.com/albums/oo1/Tutorial_02/Coffeetimeunlimited/CTU/ctu_02.jpeg"; border="0" alt=" photo ctu_02.jpeg"/>


Put that image in your public_html folder and link to it there. It will save on load times. Plus it's better practice. If photobucket goes down so does your background. Plus, clear your cache with the changes you make. ;)


I agree with BG dont use photobucket at all!!

Also the image you are using needs to be bigger, I have resized the one you have hopefully it will be big enough

Just thought of this but it could effect your mobile view....I'm not sure though but was just thinkin about this.


Will take the chance.. I think maybe I upgraded to soon, Some of the members don't like the new version.



Dont forget the theme I made with your site in mind Coffee

There will always be members that don't like change.

You can pitch it to them that it allows
- better security
- better security
- less spam

and more scope for improvements in future.
