  • How do i change the forum background out with a picture instead of of colour?

    It would be cool if anyone know how to change the forum stereotypic (background colour) into a picture of own choice. is that possible at all?

    'stereotypic'????

    You can add a backgroung image by adding this to the Body Tag.

    Admin CP -> Styles -> Modify -> [fonts/colors/etc] -. Page layout -> Body Tag

      but when i go into the bodytag it says:

      <body bgcolor="oooooo" text="#FFFFFF" id="0" leftmargin="10" topmargin="10" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10" link="#000020" vlink="#000020" alink="#000020">

      so what did was changing it into this

      <body bgcolor="/banners/andro.jpg"

      and what happened is it goes yellow or red the background?
      am i doing the right thing? is this how i add image?

        No, you need to add the backgorund tag like this:

        <body background="banners/andro.jpg" .......>

        And either use the path relative to the forum directories, or use the complete and full path to this image.

          I put :
          <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" id="all" leftmargin="10" topmargin="10" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10" link="#000020" vlink="#000020" alink="#000020"> <body background="www.tuoithantien.com/forums/images/xmastree.gif"
          and it does not work at all.

            That's because you have two body tags. You need to put 'background="www.tuoithantien.com/forums/images/xmastree.gif" in the first body tag.
