    I've been looking around for a while and I can't figure out where to go to change my background. That is all :p

    Also, my user's avatars are circular, how can I put them back to being square?

    i think it's,
    Style Properties> General> HTML.

    Upload it to your FTP.

    If the image was located in your styles folder for example you would specify:

    styles/yourimage.png

    Otherwise put it as the full url if it is uploaded somewhere else:

    http://image.com/test.png

    Which background, specifically?

    Style Properties > General > Avatar

    Remove the border radius.

    Try the full image url or use /styles/image.png

    Alternatively, upload the image to a place like Imgur and use that URL.

    Yep, always handy for testing images before uploading to the site.

    Hmmm this is odd. None of that stuff worked... this is what I have

    And im still just seeing that dark grey background. Also I don't think that avatar thing worked either, unless it only takes effect on new ones

    If you can post a screenshot highlighting the area you want to change and provide a link to your site, it'll allow us to better assist you.

    You are using a style by @Audentio , so it would be best to ask within that discussion thread how to set the background. Audentio may have a special style property for it.

    You should set the background color to transparent.
