[Resolved] Changing Backgrounds


Full Board URL: http://sincityhaven.com/forum/
XMB Version: 1.9.11

I am trying to change the background color on my site. I know I am using the right box: Background (Enter a hex code or an image name): and I have tried putting a link to a background image but that didn't work so I just threw #000000 in there. The background remains white no matter what I put in there.

I would just put a new theme on there but the whole button image thing (image database?) eludes me thus far.

Can anyone help?

Perhaps try changing

background-color:

in the css file (after taking a backup of that file).

I am a complete noob to all this and since I don't know where the css file is and it was suggested that I do not touch it...how do I get the buttons on the imported themes to show?

CSS file... lottos? That is not really used in most of the XMB themes.


@ Ian,

Go to your Administration Panel" --> "Themes".
Click on the "Details" link behind the theme you wish to edit.
Adjust the "Background (Enter a hex code or an image name)" property.



Additional information regarding CSS files;

Some themes have a CSS file.
If that is the case, you can find out.
First, find out which "Image Directory" your theme uses:
1. Go to your Administration Panel" --> "Themes".
2. Click on the "Details" link behind the theme you wish to edit.
3. Check out the "Image Directory" property.
Login to your webspace with an FTP client, and check that folder for a file called "theme.css".

I am putting #000000 in the background on the main theme but the background still stays white. Not sure why. I would really like to have my own background on there but I will settle for solid black. The only reason I'm trying to modify the main theme is because the button images don't show up on the imported themes.

I still don't understand why the images for the buttons don't show up when using the imported themes.

I checked the Image Directory property and it said images/davis. So I did as you instructed and it says, "This directory is empty." This can't be this difficult... I must be missing something.

@ lottos,
You are right :thumbup: that theme has a CSS:
Quote:
body {
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: #fff;
}

Solution = DELETE :frog:

@ Ian,
The other buttons weren't working because your images/theme folder uploaded as images/theme/theme and messed up the path for the .xmb template.

:love: Matty
