XF 1.5 Make Forum transparent

#1
Two questions

1. How does one go about making the forum transparent? I want the background to show directly behind the content/forum boxes?

2. How do I make the background fixed?
body {
background: url(urimage.png) #000000 center no-repeat fixed;
}

Apparently that is the code? But where do I put this?

Did you want partial transparency? If so you would need to adjust all the existing background colours to a base colour and set the opacity using RGBA values, as an example:
Code:
#content .pageContent {
background-color: rgba(75, 75, 189, 0.6);
}
Where 0.6 is 60% opacity - adjust to your liking.

Would recommend you do it in a child style, and add in either EXTRA.CSS or tweak it via style properties.

2. How do I make the background fixed?
body {
background: url(urimage.png) #000000 center no-repeat fixed;
}
You could add that in the EXTRA.CSS template, or adjust the HTML style property here:
