Argh!   How do I make the background image on my journal theme stay still?  So it doesn't scroll with the rest of the journal.  I had it on my old style and can't remember how I did it, and can't seemed to find the right button to click.

It depends on whether you are using S1 or S2. You need to set the backdround to 'fixed'. I never use this layout, so I am not sure if it is an option or if you need an override code. If you can't find an option for it let me know and I will write up a code for you.

This one is S2. (called 'smooth sailing')

I don't want to put you to any trouble. Would the code be just for the fixed background? And how would I apply it? *is hopeless at webby stuff*

Oh, and I can't find an option to set the background to 'fixed.' ;~)

OK, it took a minute cuz LJ went and messed up the customization area. What a nightmare! Anyways, click on Custon CSS in the side bar and in the big box paste the code below. If there is anything in the box, remove it. (Though I would save it to a text file just in case you need it.)

Let me know if this worked for you. I tested it on my layout journal and it worked there for this style. This should set your background color, position, and image. I assumed that you wanted the picture to align to the left margin. I also assumed that you did not want the image to repeat. If you do change no-repeat to repeat-x to have it repeat horizontally.
