I have moved from wordpress.com to self hosting, and am using the Oxygen theme.
When I set a background image on wordpress.com it just showed at the sides, leaving the main content area white. Now I am self hosting this doesn't work, the image shows on the whole page making the content impossible to read.
I have set the background to white, and I also changed the CSS as advised in this thread:
However I am still having the problem...
My site is jeremygask.com (I've removed the background image until this is sorted.)
