Node Title as Image

Been look through the forums and haven't found a solution or if one exists in which you can have an image be used as a background for a node within the index tree and for any sub-forums. Looked at rpdom.com as some inspiration and love how they've worked their layout.

Or in some way how Miner had used in his Metro theme.

I think with his he changed the category banner. Anyway, I'm working on understanding the theming of Xenforo more for my site. I'm using the 2-column layout for the index and I think if could find some way to incorporate the images as a background would make the nodes pop, or I might be creating more work for not so much sizzle.

For the same image in every node, if I'm reading you correctly, you can use a variation of

.nodeList .categoryForumNodeInfo, .nodeList .forumNodeInfo, .nodeList .pageNodeInfo, .nodeList .linkNodeInfo {
background: url("@imagePath/xenforo/misc/nodebg.png") repeat-x scroll 0% 0% #ededec !important;
border: 1px solid #191C22;
Changing, border colours, image url... and whether you want it to repeat or not.

For a different image per node, it's a little more detailed and would require specific information relating to your site (node ID's for categories and forums).
