I assume that to change the image you simply upload the new image and over write the old one. I did this with no problem. What I can figure out is how to stop that background image from repeating. I thought I accessed the css file and changed the modifier to no-repeat, however it continues to do so.

This is elementary, I know but I need help anyways, Thanks

yup, I followed the directions listed - at least I think I did but it still tiles the background.

Hello,

I do not see the background repeating on your site. Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?

Hello,

There is still nothing showing as repeating in the background on your site.

Hello,

What is your screen resolution set to? That appears to be extremely tiny, not the standard for most sites.

You can try adding the following to the bottom of template.css:

body {
background-repeat:none;
}

Ya the screen shot I sent you is with a background I don't plan on using. I will mess with a little more and see what I can come up with. Am I correct that the template.css only has one section that address the body format?
