Here is example editing css
Code: [Select]
body {
    background-image: url("gradient_bg.png");
}

You need to add  background-image: url("yourimagefile.png");  to the body tag in the css

No in the css after you modify the style/edit style

Admin>Style Manager>Select "modify style" next to the style your using.


Press F3 on your keyboard, in the search box type 'background'


Your looking for this:
Code: [Select]
/* Set a fontsize that will look the same in all browsers. */
body
{
   background: url(http://images.smfboards.com/caf/themes/light_green/images/theme/bg.png);
   font: 78%/130% "Verdana", "Arial", "Helvetica", sans-serif;
   margin: 0 auto;
   padding: 15px 0;
}


Simply replace this string (http://images.smfboards.com/caf/themes/light_green/images/theme/bg.png) [your string will look different unless your using the  light_green style], with the direct location of your background.


Post a link to your forums so we can see how it turned out.

Good luck!
