CHange background to an IMAGE

Post by helpmehelpme »

I am very new to reading HTTP code.
How to i modify the background of my entire message board to an image?
on my own website the code for the background reads

Code: Select all

body {
	background-image: url(img/bg_fir.gif);
	background-color: #000000;
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
}
how do i make the message board the same step by step?
thanks

Well, that style I based off of prosilver currently 3.0.1........First thing you need to do is go through your colours.css and change where you find "background-color: #AbC123;" or whatever the code you find is to "background-color: transparent;" ........Now you can either change one or a few backgrounds at a time, or simply change them all in one sitting then go back later and add colors back where you decide you want them.

Next, make a .jpg/.gif/.png or whatever type of file for your background picture......Now this I found to be important. First off, you want as small of a "file size" as possible. SO work at keeping the detail up, yet fight as hard as you can to get it to as few kb as possible. Next, you really need to consider its size...Width is not so much a problem as it will adjust automatically for that, yet height. My advice would be to consider your actual viewing area, consider the vertical scroll bar being there, yet then consider various browser layouts, toolbars and so on. I have a very minimal button browser, yet someone with a very heavily toolbarred one may see it quite differently. My thinking set your picture size to go with the minimal, and a noramal aspect ratio. (mine viewed in 1024x768 is size wise 1010x610)........Place your finished picture in "styles/theme/images".

Next, open your "overall_header.html".........The original reads like this:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

When done uploading the altered files, in the ACP refresh both your "template & theme"........and that should be it. If you look close in the above you'll also see where to add a "favicon".

Re: CHange background to an IMAGE

re-read it....red text won't take in the code box......

Look in your files on your PC......It's under "styles\prosilver\theme\colours.css".....The overall_header.html is in "styles\prosilver\template\overall_header.html".

Though you can edit your "stylesheet.css" in the ACP, it's a lot of bulk to go through to find little bits....So it's easier to alter each individual .css file, them ftp upload them overwriting the old, then refresh the template and theme......It will automatically then update what you see in the ACP.......Yet if you edit in the ACP then refresh, you lose all your work.

I think your site http://78sentai.org/forum/ is very nicely done and on my browser looks very nice. However, your supposed "fix" for IE 6 does not work. Your modifications, in fact, make it nearly impossible for IE6 users to actually navigate your forum.

You can see this using a browser emulator such as BrowserCam (www.browsercam.com).
(I did a capture of your forum just to make sure).

I learned this after trying this on my own forum. Again looked great, but the IE6 users really screamed at me.

Hope you can find a fix for your forum! I'd love to know if you do, because I had to revert to simple css and a large background image to get the effect I wanted.

Thanks for your post.

You can see this using a browser emulator such as BrowserCam (http://www.browsercam.com).
(I did a capture of your forum just to make sure).

I learned this after trying this on my own forum. Again looked great, but the IE6 users really screamed at me.

Hope you can find a fix for your forum! I'd love to know if you do, because I had to revert to simple css and a large background image to get the effect I wanted.

Thanks for your post.

~mykool

Thanks for the response yet it's "not" my fix...Simply a portion snagged from another style to try and make it work.......Having had no complaints could you post your screenshot?...Or describe the negative effects please?

Anywho, it's tough to get the full effect of the forum till you have the "Kudasai.TTF" font, and am having a logo issue I've not been able to resolve yet, though working on it.....Very pleased with my forum "icons" which I have a thread on in "Forum Information"......Soon I hope, have received very little help so just trail and error.

The part you have listed in the 2nd code box isnt coming up in my overall header.html file. Heres what mine says.I'm not sure where to put the img name for the background I want to use.
Ok, well I went in and made a minor edit which I believe may be a 3.0.1 upgrade, yet past that simply make a backup copy of your overall_header.html & then erase everything saving the following into it.......Look on like 114 for the file name area reading:

Re: CHange background to an IMAGE

Post by stuckinlimbo »

:oops: Im sorry. I dont mean to be difficult. This is all just new to me. All the jargon is a foreign to me.

I have copied the entire prosilver folder so I can alter the template w/o losing the original. However the following line isn't in my overheader.html

Code: Select all

<div id="bg"><img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/forumbackg6.jpg" width="100%" height="100%" alt=""></div>
The only "theme path" line I see says:

Code: Select all

<link href="{T_THEME_PATH}/print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" title="printonly" />

Hon, that is because prosilver doesn't have a "background image"...we're "adding one".....If you upload you rimage and alter that name (mine forumbackg6.jpg) then "add" the code I mention that is when you get the image ;)......Just copy and paste my overall_jeader.html text into yours (removing all in it first)...Then change the image name to whatever yours is.

Oooooohhhh.... :lol: ok, I think I understand now. lol

off to try it out.

while I'm doing that and when you have time, what is the difference between the imageset folder and the images in the theme folder. Why are they not placed in the same area? It seems the site logo is placed in one spot and a banner is put into another folder. It doesnt make sense why all the graphics for a particular theme aren't just in one folder.

This is what it looks like on IE6.
It's not a font issue. Looks great on my browser. Just want to let you know the IE6 "fix" is broken.

ahh, ok thanks.......That does explain one person who claims to have IE7 yet I didn't think he did and was right. As i said though, I'm just learning this stuff myself, is my first try....and the "fix" is not mine, was in another theme. Sadly I have no idea what to do about it.....

Wonder how it would look if I removed that script...Hmmmmmmm....Second thought it looks like it is calling for a script file I may not have installed...will see what I can do.

Thanks,

K2
