For some reason, I've been searching well over 4 hours now and still can't find a selection for centering the background of the site.

Is there a selection somewhere to center the actual background image or do you have to code it in, and if so where.  I use a wide screen monitor and not being able to center the background is rather annoying.  Can anyone help please.

I don't have a link to your site, so I'm guessing you're using the GuildPortal site editor. There is no option to center your background image that I can see. What you'll have to do is add a Custom StyleSheet.

Read this post on how to copy your current site style into the Custom StyleSheet, then look in your CSS for "body" and modify it by adding the CSS in orange:
body { background-image: url(URL TO BACKGROUND IMAGE) center center fixed;}
  • If you want your background image to scroll with the page, remove the "fixed" above.
  • The "center center" will center the background image from side to side and top to bottom.
