This is a java script, and css approach to setting a background image on the forgot password page. See the attached file for info, and the example of the result.

Thanks Darryl B,

It worked even for my sign in page :)

Would the same work for other pages, such as a splash page, with the relevant changes to the page details?

It should. The script works off the page url, but you can add a background image directly in the splash screen page with css since the page accepts html.

You can simply add this directly to the top of the splash screen page in the admin panel. Just insert your url between the " " marks. You don't have to have the !important tag here since it is directly related to the splash screen page.

<style>
.ow_page_wrap {
     background-image: url("your image url here");
    background-size: 100% 100%;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
</style>

What do you mean about changing files in the theme css?  The change you are trying to do goes directly into the Splash Screen page in the admin panel.

That is a question for Oxwall. They have those pages, and a few others, written into the core, and use the blank html page.That's why you have very limited customization ability in these pages. I don't know enough about coding to follow how they are calling the code when the links are clicked.
