How do I add my background image to the "about.htt" page so it will match the rest of my site?

Thanks

The actual code will vary, depending upon how you're using the background image. If you're entering an image under Projector > Site > Design > Cover page and telling it to center it and repeat it (like a texture image), then producing the same thing on the About page would require this in Projector > Advanced > Custom code > CSS:
#about-page {
	background: url(graystone.jpg) center center repeat;
}
Use the same file name, of course.

But if you're giving it an image and telling Projector to stretch it to fit, the code would be:
#about-page {
	background: url(myimage.jpg) center center/cover;
}
The skin should probably be updated to do this automatically, though I could argue against it, since the About page shows text over that background image.
