    Exclamation Stretching * RESOLVED *

    This is very 'n0ob-ish' question. I want the background to fill a whole screen, not just a little square.

    Here's my CSS:
    Code:
    body {
    background-image:url(http://img376.imageshack.us/img376/2047/aurorathemebackground32va.th.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat; 
    background-attachment: fixed;
    }

    background-attachment: fixed;
    }
    the red line is telling it not to "stretch".
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    2. Its got a border around
    3. It didn't stretch.

    If you stretch a small picture, the quality is bound to suffer.
