    there are using a picture for the background in the body.

    From the site, here is the css they are using:
    Code:
    body{
    background:#000000;
    background-image:url(images/bg3.jpg);
    background-position:top left;
    background-attachment:fixed;
    background-repeat:no-repeat;
    margin:0px;
    }
    
    And here is the image they are using for their background:
    Code:

    Hope that helps!

    Yes, that helps.

    I was just wondering if I could do it easily with a black 2 column Wordpress theme. I haven't been able to find a theme that I could use without alot of modification.

    you'll notice that the picture is the full size of the web page rather than just the pic you see on the right, so I don't think it will matter in this case since it fills the whole screen. I would just use it as they have since you know it works. :)

    See this url once more:
    Code:

    I am not sure about doing this in a theme without changing quite a bit but you could try to modify the css and modify the body to see what happens.

    Actually it can be done with any theme, all you will need to do is make sure the main div does not have the css property
    Code:
    margin: 0 auto;
    You dont need major modification for this. Try it with the WP default theme, it'll be a breeze to figure out.
