Styling is new to me, sorry if this question has been asked more than once.

How do I use a background image instead of the standard blue colour for Xenforo?

Thanks.

Style properties -> header and navigation -> header you can remove he blue color there and also set an image

Thanks for chiming in, Russ!

I was thinking the same. I'm assuming I simply upload an image and tell the style to look there? but what code do I add in the style?

I did this as well, but its not taking. Is there a setting in the color pallet that needs to be made to display the image?

Is the a minimum/maximum file size to do this?

mine is in the web directory. I can get a smaller png to work, but not without repeating and creating the seems. I prefer one image for the entire page, and that's where i am having an issue.

I'd say stick with a picture that is sized to 1024 x 1024 as that might work without repeating. In the header and navigation menu, make sure it is set not to repeat the image.
