Herm, not really sure how to edit that without using CSS, which is infact a guildportal tool. It's really simple to set up once you get the basics. If you do, then all you need to do is add/replace the body line with:

body {background: url(YOUR URL HERE) top center;background-repeat: repeat-y; background-color: #000000;}

If you want it to fit right, the first step is to turn off the scaling feature.. need to take that % out of the width and add pixel widths.

For your site i think:

Left Content Box: 200px
Center Content Box: 500px
Right Content Box: 200px

Total width is 900px with center alignment.

Then you need to go to each pages Display Options and set the dimensions as listed above. What you will get is something like:

Mines a bit wider but you get the idea.

Avandius told you in his last post... don't use percentages, use absolute values instead.

To center your background, you'll probably need to add the CSS he gave you at the top... please read this post on how to do that.
