Topic-icon Background Image

6 years 5 days ago #4627 by
I'm looking for some help in trying to set up an overall background image for our site using the hot architecture template and as of today have not been successful in getting that background image to display. Regardless of the changes I've made to the css or html file (i.e. using the background option within both files) I can't get the image to display. Can anyone provide me the correct option to get a background image to show using this specific template.

Usually we advise that image it self should be changed:

but that can depend from template to template. If you wand correct path from us to give you, give us link and describe which image you want to change.

If you want to do it using CSS, best is to make changes in index.php using Template MAnager->Edit HTML . Add css entity as near as possible to body tag so that rule gets advantage.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Understand about changing the image itself - I'll double check but I'm not sure I could find the bg_1.png in the images folder of the template (hotarchitecture is the template we are using).

We experienced some permission problems when first trying to access and modify the images folder within the template so maybe I just missed it.

I have done the change(s) via the control panel (edit html, css etc.) however with no success).

I'll take another look for the bg_1.png file and try to replace that and let you know how that goes.

Thanks again.

I checked the images folder in the hotarchitecture template and there is no bg_1.png file. There are a number of header and footer background files, a default color file and a code_bg file. Can you help suggest what file can be changed to create the background image for the overall site?

In basic Architecture you have this background images:

php/css for this:

<?php if($bgStyle) { ?>

.header_module {
background:url(<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/hot_architecture/images/header_bg<?php echo $bgStyle; ?>.png) no-repeat;

.footer_content {
background:url(<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/hot_architecture/images/footer_bg<?php echo $bgStyle; ?>.png) no-repeat bottom;

<?php } ?>

this is in templates\hot_architecture\css\template_css.php

Well I think I have the correct changes for the css file but unfortunately I do not seem to be able to get the changes saved into the template_css file. After making the changes and trying to save/rename/create the new file I receive an error regarding permissions. I have changed the rights to the administrator level for my user on the system but still have an issue trying to save the changes - is there a trick to getting my changes into the template css file within the hot architecture template/folder(s)?
