Background img help!

  1. I need to add a background fixed image. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to customize a current theme that I have and add additional fixtures to the existing template.
    Please help!

    The blog I need help with is shoesthatloveyou.wordpress.com.

  2. The site linked to your name is not a wp.com blog, so we won't be able to help you with that. If you have one, please link it to your name.

  3. Hello,
    I linked my name to the blog. Is there a way I can get help now?

  4. Hey if it is a wordpress.com blog

    here is an example of how to add a menu bar...for images its pretty much the same thing...just get rid of the links

  5. I tried that and it didn't work :(

    I either want to add 3 images to the background of a current theme I have OR I want to use my own background created on Photoshop and apply it to the current theme I have.

    Whoever knows which is easier/doable, I am dying to know!!

  6. can you post exactly what you've tried. I'm playing around with adding images that i've photoshopped to the left and right of my frame..and i'm having no problems

  7. shoesthatloveyou - the background property should be in body, and I think your photoshopped image will be far easier for you at this point. Here's an example. Change the specifics to suit your needs:

    body {
    	background-color: #111111;
    	background-image: url("filename.jpg");
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    	background-attachment: fixed;
            background-position: right bottom;
    }

    That can all be expressed on one line, but I find it easier, when tinkering, to leave it that way.

    For further refinements, the resources in the forum sticky are excellent.

  8. The position doesn't need the extra indent. The spacebar got away from me.

  9. Thanks, I tried that before and it distorts my image (for example, in IE it will blow up the image while in Firefox it shrinks the image). Is there any way I can have my image fit the entire screen so that any viewer will be able to see the site properly?
