  • [Forum] How to change background on 4.0.4?

    Hey can someone please help me figure this out, lol... I am trying to add a background image to my forum. I am stylevars>doc_background.. I set the path correctly with the url() needed. I am actually seeing the color of my image in the preview, but my forum background is staying white. I dunno if its a bug or maybe I am just simply missing something. Thanks in advance for any info tho help me get this fixed! I have included a screenie as well

    Try adding the full url to the image and see if that helps.

        Is your logo file right under the images directory or in one of its sub-directories?

          Try using the Body Background styvar instead of the doc one.

              I will have to play with it on my site and see what I can figure out. I haven't run into this before as I have never messed with a background image. Have you tried setting the Units setting in there?

                    I have no idea what the Units does. I was just thinking out loud I guess. Sorry for that.

                    ltlogo1.png is a valid PNG file, right?

                          Well, I got it to show after clicking the save button. But is shows on the body background and not the page background.

                            Ok, I got it to work on the doc background setting. You have to save it before it will show up, though.

                              So this means i must have a invalid file or something? Does it have to be a specific file type?
