So I want my current clock gear background but not tiled just one full image. I also want the borders for my content boxes to be a tannish color to match the background and I want the white background of the content boxes to be see through so that the background shows instead as well. Only problem is I don't know how to do that could someone explain or give me an easy do it yourself website link? confused

Ok, the code for making the background one large image is:
body{
background:url(*insert url!*) no-repeat top left;background-size:100%;color: #ffffff; }


For the transparent white part, the first code will get rid of the blue bar, the second, the white boxes:
.panel h2{background: transparent;}

.panel{background: transparent;}

If you have any other questions, just ask... also tell me what you think of my profile.

Your profile is amazing, also the smiley zombie vampire thing at the bottom is adorably ghoulish lol. I love how you made your avatar partially transparent very nice effect. Does the first code just make the blue bars disappear or can I change the color?

Yes, you can use a hex code, to change the color. Click on the link for a list of hex codes.

Does the image I want for the background have to be a certain size for it to work with the code? (last question promise)

no, if it does not work, try replacing the 100% with the word absolute.

I'm not sure why but my profile seems to be split into 2 seperate sections, the top and the bottom and different images. confused Am I putting the code in the wrong place, it's the theme override section right?

Try this exact code:
body{background: #000 url(http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa186/rikku18_2007/steampunk-girls-taringa-935684.jpg) no-repeat top left;background-size:100%;color: #ffffff; }
#columns{top: 0px;position: absolute;}

#columns{top: 0px;position: absolute;}

it seems to have raised some of my boxes up higher on my profile so you can't see them but I'm still getting 2 different backgrounds.

Okay, there's quite a bit wrong there... Try deleting that code and put this instead (and yes, the theme override section is right):
html,body{
background: url('your image url') no-repeat fixed top left;
background-size:cover;
}
