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..

Bigguy

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

body
Under that at the top add this:

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

Bigguy

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"/>

Bigguy

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

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

You can pitch it to them that it allows

- better security
and
- less spam

and more scope for improvements in future.
