Allows you to use a background image in Discord without greatly altering the basic look of Discord. You can easily swap the background picture, set an accent color and change the overall transparency (darkness).

For those asking, all you need to do is go into your theme folder, right-click BasicBackground, and open with your word editor of choice. Find "--background:" and in the brackets after url, paste in an image link. To get one, go to google image, find an image you like, right click, and click "Copy image address". Paste it into the url brackets. Save. Done,
I've gotten a custom discord background. But on startup, it launches vanilla discord and not BD. Is there anything I can do to make it so that BD launches on startup instead? I've also asked this question on the 4th of November, for reference. Only compromise I've found so far, is quitting discord then starting it back up, but I don't want to do that every startup.
Hey, can you change the background or am I just stupid?
"You can easily swap the background picture, set an accent color and change the overall transparency" thats cool but how???
I love this theme. Being able to customize your own background for discord is amazing, I love the aesthetic capabilities.
With that being said though, I love my discord theme background. Every startup, I have discord set to launch, but it launches vanilla Discord and not BD Discord. Is there any way to bypass this? I've tried some basic troubleshooting, but no luck. I want it so that, BD Discord is set to launch by default instead of vanilla Discord.
All help appreciated!

You need to first download the BetterDiscord2 application first. There's a couple of Youtube videos on that. Then you put the file that you downloaded from this website into the "themes" folder

What is line 18? BackdropBlur?
It took me ages to find out what a Backdrop is. If you right-click an image, a bunch of options pop up (e.g. 'Reactions'). That's an example of a backdrop. The value that is entered in the "Backdrop Blur" line determines how blurry/clear you want the backdrops.
For example, 0px would be clear, no blur. The higher the value, the more blur, as with all the other "...Blur" lines.
How do I change the background?
It's very simple to do.
Upload the desired image to any discord chat, preferably an image chat in a server (make sure you or someone doesn't delete the image as the link to the file may be permanently deleted (haven't tested that yet)).
Open the Theme CSS file in your downloads folder (this should open in notepad or any equivalent notes app) (changing any settings bugs out the themes setting page in discord if you modify the CSS in the themes folder, Discord will think here's an update available for the theme, causing a permanent update banner to appear (this happened to me)).
Find line 18:
--background: url(https://mwittrien.github.io/BetterDiscordAddons/Themes/BasicBackground/background.jpg); / general background image /
Go to the chat you posted the image into discord, open the image and click Open Original.
Copy the image URL from your browsers URL box.
Replace the default URL but make sure to paste within the brackets. If you delete the brackets the CSS file WILL break.
(The amount of numbers may vary)
Edit: The reason for using discord is that the CSS file/ better discord expects a filename at the end of the URL and discord does so. Where-as Google drive and other cloud storage services use an alpha numerical linking system which causes the theme to revert back. You can use a different service that has the image, but make sure the URL/ link has the filename at the end of it.
Pra quem deseja alterar a cor basta abrir o tema e depois procure "--accentcolor:" quando achar esse texto em frente terá alguns codicos e basta escolher outra cor
imagem com alguns codicos de cores: https://cdn-0.access-excel.tips/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/rgb-color.jpg
e para quem deseja alterar a image bastar procurar background e na frente terá o link da image e ai basta trocar
Is there a way to change the icon colours and the subtext colors? for example the "online" "idle" "Find or start a conversation" text etc. I can't seem to find anywhere to change that?
The original background ain't the best, but the fact that it allows you to customise pretty much anything... wow! This is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!
How do you get rid of the watermark? I didn't really understand the way you answered that before.

To change the color of pinging you need to give them a role and change the color of the role, you can then ping someone with different colors! :3
OOOPS! Wrong person.. That was meant for 'the guy that roasts you'. Excuse my comment.. ;-;
is it possible to change the color of ping? like @everyone or @here having a different color from others
Is it possible to get rid of the boxes around the text?
Yup, just modify the file and put : messagetransparency to 0.
how do you take away the top text thhat says "discord - basicbackground by devilbro"?
You have to replace the @import url(https://mwittrien.github.io/BetterDiscordAddons/Themes/BasicBackground/BasicBackground.css) line in BasicBackground.theme.css with the entirety of the BasicBackground.css from that URL. Then scroll down to the 20. WATERMARK section and remove all those html:only-child entries.
Unfortunately when I tried what 'DFNCTSC' suggested, it didn't work how it was supposed too. Yes, it did get rid of the watermark, but it also got rid of all of the other customisations I had just set up (e.g. a different background, different transparency settings etc.). So only do what he/she said if you have made no other customisations
Can you do a tutorial on how to change background, color... please ?
Did you even turn on the plugin?
