    I would like to change the background on my website http://www.tunermaneuvermag.com to a custom wallpaper/background image I made. I would also like to change the background area where the posts are the homepage are to a custom background/wallpaper. How do I got about doing so? I would like it to be setup similar to this website http://www.greasyblocks.com . I need to know what image files or what I need to code in override.

    Any help would be awesome.

    You need to upload your background image into your theme's images folder and then edit your theme's style.css. For css background info, see:

    background-position: top center;

    As for the size, look in the style.css for the width of the element that you are applying to background image to. The site you like uses 3 main background images, which is more advanced css.

    I really wouldnt reccomend ripping greasyblocks.com

    Cut your losses and stop short of asking people here to help you steal.

    Changing background images, etc will vary based on how your theme is setup.

    On a side note I agree with whooami. We developed http://www.greasyblocks.com and a lot of hard work went into creating that theme. If you want to use it as inspiration that's fine, however copying our files or modifying them is considered a violation of copyright. Let's all play nice. Thanks.
