I love this theme!! I'm glad i bought it…..

Can you give me a tip to add a background that fills up the space outside the webpage. (ex. www.black-bone.com (the "brick" background wich i added with artisteer)) (I'm building another site for this band on wimhompes.nl)

Grtz,
Wim

it look like site you showed to me has repeating background image, you can always have big background image to cover all resolutions, or you can re-size bg image:

Hi,

I used the mod: "mod_background_1.7.x_1.4" to do this.

I used one big no repeating background and in de module i placed this text:

background-repeat:no-repeat !important;
background-position: top center;


in the additional CSS textbox.

Thats All!!

I would like to add a picture to the background. What folder do I upload it to? Also I looked at the above link. What file am I modifying in that example?

Well, I must be stupid. Can't get it to work.

I had to set the position to user1 to get the background color to change. but the background image will not show up. i read somewhere to make the color 'transparent' and that got rid of the solid color background but still no background image.

not sure what i'm missing.


it works if I have random image clicked to yes, but it will not work if its clicked to no. I have a large image so it should show up. I even set it to yes for repeating the background just in case.
