I am a complete newb to wordpress and suffusion as well, obviously. I am getting along decently thus far but have seem to come across a minor hurdle. I have setup a child theme so I can utilize buddy press and that all went swimmingly. However, now as I am trying to change some theme settings I am unable to do so. I have gone to Appearance -> Background and made sure that nothing has been set or selected. I then went to the Suffusion Options -> Skinning to change the background of my blog. Regardless of what photo I choose I do not see that image when I go to my blog. I made sure I had custom styles selected and the default color background unchanged. I have tried looking through the forum posts to find some useful information but I wasn't fruitful in my search. Apologies for this, I know it's probably something very simple.
