Hello,

Yes you are correct. The design of this theme is a stretched design divided into sections, and so there’s not going to be a simple way to set one background for the entire site. These will be CSS customizations to the theme you will need to make. You could target the sections individually or possibly consider making each section transparent and applying a larger background on the body or wrapper #container of the theme.

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

Here are your CSS selectors for the different horizontal sections the theme is split into:

#top { ... }
#featured { ... }
#main { ... }
#featured_below { ... }
#bottom { ... }

And here is information about how the background property works in CSS:

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
