    I'm having a difficult time changing my background to an image file. When I try to upload larger image files, nothing happens; and although smaller sized files do seem to upload, they only show in a tiny square box. I can change the color of the background though. Can you tell me how to make it work? Thanks for your help.

    Is your image a gardient, if not, how exactly do you want to display it so that it's distinguishable AND without causing your site load speed to plummet?

    Anyway, here's what you need to do if it's one image that's going to cover your background (again, strongly NOT recommended):

    In your CSS file, find the "body" (line 69), and within the curly braces you should see:

    background-color: #HTMLCOLORCODEHERE

    Replace it with:

    background: HTMLCOLORCODEHERE/transparent url(IMAGE URL HERE);

    strings in caps should be replaced with your correspondent info. If you want to apply a background image and repeat it all over the background, us the CSS background-repeat property.

    Thanks for your reply. If I should i run into any more problems, i will try your suggestion. It magically started to show the image background, apparently all on its own, shortly after I submitted this problem.
