Code: Select all
textarea {
   background-image: url('./images/libarx1.gif');
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center;
   font-family: "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
   font-size: 1.3em;
   line-height: 1.4em;
   font-weight: normal;
   border: 1px solid #A9B8C2;
   padding: 2px;
}


now is like that

I have like this.


Find code:
Code: Select all
textarea {
   font-family: "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
   width: 60%;
   padding: 2px;
   font-size: 1em;
   line-height: 1.4em;
}


Replace:
Code: Select all
textarea {
   font-family: "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
   background-image: url('http://domain.com/htdocs/phpBB3/styles/prosilver/theme/images/imagename.jpg');
        background-repeat:no-repeat;
        background-position:center;
        width: 60%;
   padding: 2px;
   font-size: 1em;
   line-height: 1.4em;
}


That address issue might be that hardest part to understand. C+p that code and chance your domain and image name to it. That is for prosilver. You might not have to clear cache after that. Try just add that code and test, if don't effect, then clear cache.

Now this line thing is beginning to haunt me. There as another person that had this same problem but were never able to fix it. No matter what I do on my testboard, I cannot produce that line. Why don't you post your template code here in a spoiler so I can have a look at it. It may be a day or so because I have been feeling quite under the weather. Thanks

Hello Kurt,
Hey man I am not trying to knock your board but you have some serious issues going on. Well first let me say that the download you gave me was a bad download because I tried installing it on my test forum and crashed it. So I went to your board to do some testing and couldn't even register. When you hit the submit I get some sort of error about the 'Thank Mod' Also there are quite a few broken images. You need to get these problems sorted out before I can properly trouble shoot the problem you are having.

Kurt,
Can you please post your stylesheet.css here in a spoiler and post your image you are using for your background.
Also can you give me a direct link to the place you downloaded this style?

Thanks
