Category Background Won't Work Right

EDIT: I saw this got moved to Support, My mistake I didn’t mean to miscategorize it.

So I’ve tried a few different things but the category background won’t work for me anymore.

Surprisingly that is will sometimes display for a microsecond then the UI of the discourse covers the whole image almost like it’s under everything?

It’s rare but I do see this happen from time to time.

I have tried removing any custom CSS to see if this was causing it even tried microsoft edge etc. It has me puzzled.


I made sure it’s loading and it does load but for some reason bumps under the content.

Still stumped on how to tackle and fix this issue.

Thanks a bunch, If you need any details from my end let me know and i’ll try to post it.
