Images on FH - Sept. 2017
« on: September 04, 2017, 11:04:04 AM »
Hello members of FH.

There has been recent news among the staff that the parent website highlonelyhills.com will likely go offline at the end of the month.  Given this information, I have gone and moved all the major images to my own host so they are no longer affected.

However, at the present time, I had to modify the background image because something is wrong when I put it back into the code.  The image is the correct size, but it does not render correctly with the code, and it was practically impossible to read the forum in this state.  I have put a modified background up for the time being until Darkling can figure out what is up.

Darkling, the background with the characters is hosted at: https://s6.postimg.cc/fe5mc18pb/background-template_v2.jpg

You can see its the correct size and all, but it squishes to the center when I put that url into the code where it belongs.  I'm pretty sure I didn't delete any extra code.  I don't know what the issue is.  Its been a long time since I've done any board coding to know where to go next.  :vervain-facepalm

The code seems to be fine. But I see the movie-background in the middle and no other background on the sites (which is strange, since it's all in the same image). I guess, it's a hosting problem. Maybe try another hoster?

You misunderstood me...I had to change the background to what you see now because I couldn't get the other one to load right.  This is what I put up now:

This is your original background:

I don't know why the code doesn't properly work with your original image, but it seemed to work with that edited image I made.

Since when do you dispose of such skills that allow you intelligent actions?
