    So yeah Im basically terrible with configuring the Customization, so I basically want to change
    http://gyazo.com/4b7247788089ed6ae06f01cf35f77f09
    The main part of this picture, but its quite hard to see because of the color. Anyways its the main background and its currently white. What I would like to end up with is having the plain white background turned into a image. Im not sure what folder, file and what to do so please help me finding out how to change it.
    (I use a uix template if that makes any other difference.)

    Can you provide a whole screenshot? It'll be easier to tell what it is you want to change.

    I tried but the background of the Gyazo is the same as the background of my website. Ill try photoshop some circles to make it clearer.

    Basically everything inside the blacklines should just be a image that Ive put in as a background for the website itself instead of the just plain white background

    Yes. For example, http://i.imgur.com/4zAOkpP.png?1

    You can also host images on your server and call them from there, but either way works.

    I just applied the changes, however after saving nothing has changed on the site..
    Do I need to enter a position?

    Yes. Typically, it'll always be repeat.

    But I came across looking in the settings in some other files rather then the General one, but since I have UI.X version installed im not sure if that might effect anything/overrides the default General section.

    That might be it. In which case, it would be better to contact @Audentio directly or via the style thread.

    The solution provided in this thread is the same as it would be for UI.X or any other product of ours.
