    Site: worldinconversation.org

    Page in question:http://www.worldinconversation.org/soc-119-2/

    I want to create either:
    A) a page template that will allow me to place an opaque image on the *entire* background sans header (ideally behind widgets as well)
    or
    B) find a way to place an image as the entire background on just that page as it is now.

    One to do this would be to code a page template that is specific to that page, then when editing the page in WordPress admin, you select the new page template you created.

    I had a quick look at the html/css and you could add a background image to the body tag or add a div around all the content and apply a background image to that.

    Would adding the img to the body tag send the picture full screen or just place it in the background of the center content column?

    See the above post...still seeking to reverse the area where the image is. Or to make it cover the column content as well.

    I don't get exactly what you want to do... you want to have a transparent background for the main part of your page?
    try to change in your style sheet at line 62:
    background-color: white;
    to
    background: transparent;
    and at line 67 same thing and see if this is what you are trying to achieve. if not, make a picture and edit it to explain what you want to achieve ... :)
    Hope this is it...
    Regards
