BG image in posts

Post by Mobious »

I posted on this already on the main phpBB 3.0 styles forum, but 100 views later, and only one responce, from CyberAlien... I figured I might try my luck here since some people are still browsing this forum, and I hate bumping things.

I'm trying to add a BG image to posts. Just like you have the alternating shades of blue right now for odd and even posts, I want to add a BG image to that. The problem is when a user is logged in, the Online status image becomes the BG of the entire post (to prove this, find a post made by someone logged in and right click anywhere on it and select save BG as...)

And I dont want to get rid of the Online image, because I like it. So I'm pretty sure I just need to move it. But I'm not sure where to move it, or what code I need to change/add to do so.

My original thread with some screenshots and longer attempts at explaining the issue is here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 4&t=546477

I cant believe no one is replying to it, or has run into the problem themselfs. In phpBB2 I would always add gradiants and such to posts... it amazes me that its such a hastle to do it now (and a hastle that no one else seems to have an issue with)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try changing the class of the post backgrounds and add a new class to the CSS. That way you can keep the online users background while changing the post backgrounds.

Thanks for the reply.

Thats pretty much what CyberAlien said, but I'm not really sure how to do that...
