@baris Guess that should have been the obvious, and yeah, we had some code that would auto generate a background for users. Disabling that did fix it. I really appreciate the help, feel kind of stupid now lol. Besides that being fixed now we still have an ongoing issue with plugins not working like emoji's, shoutbox, and so on. And words of advice on that?
On the admin panel, the picture scales to the right dimensions except when youre in the main page, the image doesn not scale but rather zooms in.
Try changing the image class setting to cover. That should give a better result also using an image that is too large isn't really a good idea, I think the ideal size was 400x250.
@baris Ah that fixed it as long as its not too large. Thanks for the tip!
