Subject: how can i use a background jpg for sidebars?

I've been experimenting around with the style.css file and I've noticed that the "background: " change only applies to colors such as " #000000." I've tried putting in the following:

"background: http://www.mysite.com/layouts/professional/images/image.jpg"

and it will not work.

Please help! How can I use an image as the background for the sidebars?

Go to w3.org to learn about CSS.

In this case you need
td.block-featured-left 
{
   background-image: url(http://yoursite.com/whereever/it/is.jpg);
   background-color: #000000;
}
Use the background-color too in case the client fails to load the image file. Just use colors similar to the image rather than the black above.

Thanks! That worked. Can You also tell me how I can change the font color on the side menu bars?

Also, how can I change the wording on the side menu bar for things? For example, I would like to change:

"Who's Online" to simple "Online"

and I also want to center "Online" and change the font color for it....

Can anyone help?

Simply change the block title from the Admin's block editor.
