I liked your theme and have used it in my forum. Is it possible to make the background cover the whole site? I changed it in my own and I noticed there's a white space after I scroll pass the background's bottom area.

    This should do the trick:

    .your-element {
        background: url(path-to-bg) no-repeat center center fixed;
        -webkit-background-size: cover;
        -moz-background-size: cover;
        -o-background-size: cover;
        background-size: cover;
