@Gizmo,

I have a gaming site, and my boards look blah compared to other gaming sites.
Questions.
1. Can you drop an image as the background image on the portal and have UBB paint itself on top of that?
2. I have a nice banner image I would like to appear at the top of each page
2a. THe banner image is maybe too small? can you make it bigger/longer without destroying it too much?
2b. THis banner image has some url written on it, I think it needs the touch of an artist to put my new url on it (without looking edited.)

Maybe a tall order, but I'm willing to pay your consulting fee to make my site slick 'gaming site' quality.
My current site: game-master.net
background: game-master.net/images/Angel_Island.jpg
Banner: https://game-master.net/images/ai_sig.gif

Let me know if it's doable, will look good, and how much time you think you will need. (and if you have any other suggested edits for the site look-and-feel.
(yes, I know your hourly cost.)

I'm not sure that I would be a good fit for what you're looking for... I design clean/light styles for UBB.threads such as what're shown here, not graphics heavy designs that many gaming sites end up utilizing; in fact I am not a graphics designer I generally just develop backend applications and a clean/minimal frontend... I could probably tear apart and retrofit a theme from another product or wordpress, but inventing a graphics heavy style like what most gaming sites utilize just isn't my forte...

Ah ok.
Well then, is there a way for me to replace the background of say, the dark theme with a bitmap?

The styling system fully supports the entire range of CSS

I didn't see where to specify a background jpg. But I'll give it another look
Thanks!

Its all input boxes, you enter the appropriate CSS; an example would be editing the BODY line and inserting a background CSS such as the one displayed in the "UBBT7.7 Dark" style:
Code
background:#000 url(../styles/images/chalkboard.jpg) fixed !important;
