Change background structure (5 posts)

    Hi, I´ve found a theme that I really like. Called Arras Theme but the thing is that the background is not as I want it to be. My site looks like this now.

    And I want a background more like this. The background should go all the way up, and down. Is this even possible to change, and if it is, how?:D

    I´m not sure if any code needs to be shown so if it is, just say what code and I´ll post it.

    The background on the Yahoo Answers page is actually a very small image that is tiled across the whole page. So first you'd need to upload the image you want (let's call it 'bg.gif') to your themes "images" folder.

    Then you'd need to edit your theme's default.css (line 6) and change:

    body {
    background-color:#F0F0F0;
    color:#333333;
    font-family:'Lucida Grande',Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:12px;
    font-size-adjust:none;
    font-stretch:normal;
    font-style:normal;
    font-variant:normal;
    font-weight:normal;
    height:100%;
    line-height:normal;
    min-height:100%;
    }

    to

    body {
    background:#F0F0F0 url(images/bg.gif);
    color:#333333;
    font-family:'Lucida Grande',Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:12px;
    font-size-adjust:none;
    font-stretch:normal;
    font-style:normal;
    font-variant:normal;
    font-weight:normal;
    height:100%;
    line-height:normal;
    min-height:100%;
    }

    background:#F0F0F0 url(images/bg.gif); = element background
    color:#333333; = foreground (text) color
