Background image on forum home page?

How do I do this? I edited the forum home template (adding a BG image) but it doesn't show up.

Login to AdminCP.

Styles & Templates > style manager > and hit (all style options) GO button next to your style.

Then scroll below to "Page Background" and edit code something like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And upload your image to images/misc/ folder.

PS. Image will show up in every page.

Sorry for a dumb question but I am new at this.

I put in the code as you directed. I can't seem to make it work.

Do I have to make an additional change in the body section or just the background section. I tried adding quotation marks to your line as well but it's not working. I read the CSS tutorial and it seems to be correct to me.

Thank you

raznaran, here is the code and the exact steps but with monitors getting bigger and bigger, it's not the best move unless you have a very LARGE graphics.

This applies to ONE will have to edit each style to make it work on all of them.

First, find a jpg/gif (png are too big) of a size big enough to not scroll for most monitors. Minimum of 1024x768 but 1280x1024 is better. Make sure that is loaded into the style's misc folder that you are planning on using.
Then go to your Syle Manager> All Style Options>Body (Customized in this Style)>Background and put in this code: url(images/your style/misc/name of graphic.jpg); background-repeat: repeat; background-attachment: fixed}
You can also use this code if you do not want the image to repeat:
url(images/your style/misc/name of graphic.jpg) no-repeat fixed
