How do I get this:

To not repeat itself? I want the picture there once only.

Y'know, Bucs--I tried that same exact thing with my Jericho pic using Guru's code and got the same and thought--UGH.

Answer--I dunno, but let me know as soon as you find out.

I only know that I can change; everything else just stays the same.

It's the size of your graphic, I think. If you double the width of it, it will only appear once, but it might look pixalated).

I'd suggest not using a photo for a background, it just looks to busy to me.

I think there's a way to use CSS or somethin', or maybe some HTML, to make it not repeat. I'll look through my HTML books.

RADIO EDIT: Found it.

Instead of:

<table background=URL width=100% height=231><td>


<table bgcolor="BACKGROUNDCOLOR" width=100% height=231><td STYLE="background: url(IMAGEURL) no-repeat" valign="top">

Replace BACKGROUNDCOLOR with what background color you want to show after the image stops repeating, and replace IMAGEURL with the URL to your image.


Regarding photos, do what I did with the Taker background (and what Guru's apparently done with his Big Show background) - desaturate the photo and decrease the brightness and contrast.

Man, I used to be an HTML guru, I even read about the norepeat command and I forgot aobut it.

I really need to dust up on my skillz.

And Mike, yes, I totally that if you're going to use a photo, taking it in Photoshop and softening the image helps. Making it black and white helps even more.

I know he has a big following here, so I just wanted to once again pimp Bill Simmons. This guy is by far and away (bar CRZ's recaps) the best writer on the net or anywhere. His dissertation on Seinfeld vs. Cheers is classic. And this:
