Hi guys,

Well, since it seems that it might be asking alot for someone to help me with CSS code, I have just a few questions I will ask instead so I can figure it out myself.

First of all, my BIGGEST thing is I want the BG to be fixed so the title image, tabs, and content boxes will scroll over it. I'm SURE someone knows what I'm talking about. How to I achieve that with CSS?

Also, I acan't remember how CSS code affects GP sites. If I was to only add CSS code for text and a fixed BG, would it mess up my content boxes and tab images? What do I need to account for when writing CSS?

PLEASE help me, guys. I need to have my site updated for our clan members ASAP, and I really need help with this.

Thanks...

In order to fix the background, put this code into the BODY section:

background-attachment: fixed;

For example:

BODY {
background-attachment: fixed;
}

I'm not sure how it will affect the page if that is all you put into the custom CSS section.  I would suggest trying it out and seeing what happens.

Another option is to set the page how you would like it without using any custom CSS.  Then view the page and view the page source.  Copy all of the CSS from the page source and input that into the custom CSS section and add the background attachment code into the body section.

BODY {
SCROLLBAR-BASE-COLOR: #000000;
SCROLLBAR-ARROW-COLOR: #111111;
BACKGROUND-IMAGE: "Image URL here";
BACKGROUND-REPEAT: no-repeat;
BACKGROUND-ATTACHMENT: fixed;
BACKGROUND-POSITION: center bottom;
BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000;
FONT-FAMILY: Cursive;
FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
}

Just view the source code for the site, then find the
<style type="text/css">
and copy everything below that up till
</style> (Don't use those tags though!)
and put it into your Custom StyleSheet.

Then find the
BODY {
SCROLLBAR-BASE-COLOR: #;
SCROLLBAR-ARROW-COLOR: #111111;
BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url"I'm not letting anyone use the picture (URL Here)";
BACKGROUND-COLOR: #;
FONT-FAMILY: Cursive;
FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
}
part and copy the above script (the one thats in red) to replace it. Then simpy change the url to the location of your image, and your done!

I hope this wasn't too complicated. If it is a bit too much, visit xrl.us/WnHG-WoW and make a public post in the forum section. Just mention my name and what you need, and I'll gladly help!

Actually...I'm encountering some problems with this. I'll see if I can fix them soon, it worked before...
