All that did was make it white, there is no image.

If this helps, here is the code I am working with.

Code:
<!-- DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" -->
<!-- <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> -->
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset={S_CONTENT_ENCODING}">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
{META} {NAV_LINKS}
<title>{SITENAME} -- {PAGE_TITLE}</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_archale1/myff_archale1.css" type="text/css">
<!-- BEGIN switch_enable_pm_popup -->
<script language="Javascript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
   var new_pm_flag = {PRIVATE_MESSAGE_NEW_FLAG};

   if( new_pm_flag )
   {
      window.open('{U_PRIVATEMSGS_POPUP}', '_phpbbprivmsg', 'HEIGHT=225,resizable=yes,WIDTH=400');;
   }
//-->
</script>
<!-- END switch_enable_pm_popup -->

</head>

<body bgcolor=#4D6250 leftmargin=0 topmargin=0 marginwidth=400 marginheight=0 rightmargin=0 bottommargin=0>

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
   <tr>
      <td background="templates/myff_archale1/images/_logobg.gif" height="123" valign="top"><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/invisible.png" width="326" height="120" border="0"></a></td>
      <td background="templates/myff_archale1/images/_logobg.gif" height="123" valign="top" width="100%" align="center">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
            <tr>
               <td height="100" align="center"><a href="http://www.vereor.com"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/_plug.gif" width="201" height="10" border="0"></a></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
               <td height="100" align="center"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/_map.gif" width="263" height="42" usemap="#Map" border="0"></td>
            </tr>
         </table>
      </td>
   </tr>
   <tr bgcolor="334F37">
      <td colspan="2">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
            <tr>
               <td align="center">



Maybe that'll help you.
Cuz what you gave me is pretty much where I tried it the first time and even the coding that I used to do it and it did to me what its doing now.

If that is the code you are using then you have no background image , just a bgcolor ..


this is the section that needs to be edited....

Code:
</head>

<body background="http://www.w3schools.com/images/w3logotest2.png"  leftmargin=0 topmargin=0 marginwidth=400 marginheight=0 rightmargin=0 bottommargin=0>
<table width="50%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
   <tr>


If all you see is a white background, then more and likely your path to the image is wrong or broke.

try the link above and then tell me what you see.. if it works you will see something.

Ohhh, I see what was wrong, I'd been following what it told me to do picture wise in the faq.
I didn't think an outside link would even work...
It did and its all fixed!!
I should have just tried an outside link anyways, but these forums are so different from say PHPBB's free forums that I just assumed it had to be from the same place.

How do you get the widget thing like you have on the left?
I think its pretty neat.

It shows like the server appeal, etc, I call those widgets xD

Oh, before I forget...
Is there a way to make it so that when I scroll up or down the background stays stationary, but the forums float over it and move?
I'm pretty sure there is a way to do it, but I just don't know what I need to paste in or edit to make it so.

They are called portals . If you look at portals on my HOWTODOIT site it explains them in there.

Your forum size fits the page perfectly (if not a little to the right too much) so I am unclear to how this would help you .

The background pic will always scroll up with the forum block. I really do not see how trying to float it will make any difference, unless you are seeing it different to me.

Code:
</script>
<!-- END switch_enable_pm_popup -->

<style type="text/css">

body {
   background-attachment: fixed;
   background-repeat: repeat;
}

<style>

</head>


the bit above adds in some style sheet definitions that further control how the background image is shown, this way it should repeat to fill the screen(dependant on resolution) then stay fixed as you scroll, if that's what your aiming for of course.

Hey Nick, I pasted it in where it needed to go, but it briefly made the whole forum disappear, it looked like a white page.
It was incredibly bizarre...

Symon, I'm aware it leans a bit, but getting the rest how I'd like is more time consuming than fussing over that one small section.
I'm going to fix it once I have the other details that are bugging me changed.

you added in all of it didn't you? you just needed to add the style tags and what was between, the bits above and below are to show you where to place it, I should have mentioned that.

I post it that way so people can see the differences to help them locate where it should go and what is missing, as a way of guiding people

No, I copied in just the new stuff, the rest was just a reference in where it needed to go.

xD I might know only a little, but I know where things go when adding new text at least!
I just don't know why it made the whole forums like...poof, there was just a blank white page.

Edit:
There is already code like that in it.

Code:
<!-- DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" -->
<!-- <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> -->

<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_archale1/myff_archale1.css" type="text/css">
<!-- BEGIN switch_enable_pm_popup -->

   {
      window.open('{U_PRIVATEMSGS_POPUP}', '_phpbbprivmsg', 'HEIGHT=225,resizable=yes,WIDTH=400');;
   }
//-->
</script>
<!-- END switch_enable_pm_popup -->

</head>

<body    
   background-attachment: fixed;
   background-repeat: repeat;

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
   <tr>
      <td background="templates/myff_archale1/images/_logobg.gif" height="123" valign="top"><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/invisible3.png" width="326" height="120" border="0"></a></td>
      <td background="templates/myff_archale1/images/_logobg.gif" height="123" valign="top" width="100%" align="center">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
            <tr>
               <td height="100" align="center"><a href="http://www.vereor.com"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/_plug.gif" width="201" height="10" border="0"></a></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
               <td height="100" align="center"><img src="templates/myff_archale1/images/_map.gif" width="263" height="42" usemap="#Map" border="0"></td>
            </tr>
         </table>
      </td>
   </tr>
   <tr bgcolor="334F37">
      <td colspan="2">
         <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
            <tr>
               <td align="center">



And its already like what you suggested.
Except that it doesn't do what I want it to.

you can't add style definitions to the body tag, explains why it went pop, thus why I posted it in style tags to add between the head, below is the fixed one.

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

<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
{META} {NAV_LINKS}
<title>{SITENAME} -- {PAGE_TITLE}</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_archale1/myff_archale1.css" type="text/css">
<!-- BEGIN switch_enable_pm_popup -->

   }
//-->
</script>
<!-- END switch_enable_pm_popup -->

<style type="text/css">

   background-attachment: fixed;

So I put in that, but it still made it all go poop lol.

Which is so odd...
Thankfully I saved the original so I can fix it, but I don't know why its doing that.
