Background on Static Page

  1. I'm using Spun Theme and I need help with making my background only on the homepage and have the rest of the website a white background. Also is there anyway in mobile view to see the background how it appears in full desktop mode instead of showing only the middle section of my background?

    The blog I need help with is wisterialush.com.

  2. Hi there, yes, this can be done. Go to Appearance > Header and remove the header image and then add the following CSS, which will put the background image on the main home page only. I've used a "contain" attribute in the code so that the image will adjust in size depending on the browser/screen width it is being viewed on. See what you think.

    body.home {
        background: url("http://wisterialush.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/feathers-blue-2final1.jpg") no-repeat scroll center top / contain rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
    }
  3. Thank you so much! I do have a header as well as a background. Will that mess up my header if I take it off?

  4. Never mind I got it to work. You are such a big help! Thank you so much again.

  5. Wait actually there is an issue. I just tried it on my phone and the background doesn't show up at all. It's just white.

  6. Hi there, I see your background image just fine on my iPad and iPhone. Try clearing your phone browser cache and see if you see it then. Phones rely heavily on caches to speed up loading and to save on bandwidth.

  7. Nice background image by the way. I love feathers. :)

  8. That's what I did and shut my phone down. Thank you! Me too. Those are some of my findings.

  9. So you are still not seeing the background image from your phone? What phone are you using and which browser and version, and which version of the phone OS?

  10. I have an Iphone 4. So safari browser. I only have the Clear history and Clear cookies and Data which I did. I don't have the cache button like my last Iphone.

  11. Ah, I'm seeing it just fine on my iPhone 5. I have a friend with a 4S, but I won't be able to check on that phone until Friday morning sometime.

    Are you on wi-fi with your phone or running off 3G/4G?

  12. That' so strange. I'll have to check tomorrow with someone I know who has a 4. Yes I have wifi and just tried it with 3G and no luck. I see it working perfectly too but on my laptop too since I have the option in this theme to view how it will look on other monitors including phones and it shows up just right just not on my phone.

  13. Yeah, that is weird. I just checked on the 4S, and see your image, both on wi-fi and on 4G. Both phones are using iOS7 something.

    You might try connecting from a different wi-fi network also, when you get the chance and see if it is possibly related to certain networks. Most ISPs use invisible proxies to speed things up and also to lower bandwidth usage.

    Let us know if this sorts itself out for you, or if it doesn't and we will look into it further. A couple things that would help:

    1. What version of iOS are you running?

    2. What phone service provider are you on? (ATT, Verizon, etc.)?

  14. It's the update. I tried it with a 4 that had the update. So it works I just need to update my phone. I do have another question though. On mobile when I view my photography, which is private right now, the photos are so small when viewing them through the carousel and it shows my camera information. How do I fix this?

  15. The camera data can be turned off at Settings > Media.

    On the size of images in the carousel, I would have to be able to view it on my phone. I viewed it through your Customizer page and the images seem to go full width of the phone display, but I would want to check on my phone to make sure. Once in a while the customizer view will not match viewing on an actual device. I do notice the navigation arrows are behind the top of the image in the customizer view. Are they that way on your phone as well?

  16. I have my scenic place-Las Vegas open for you to see. I did take off the data so thanks for that. No the arrows are set fine on the phone and actually are different. They aren't bubble arrows they are normal so I don't know why that's different. When you look at the photos they are so small and underneath it says view full size and it it takes you to a whole different page.

  17. And when it takes you to that different page it's just way to big.

  18. I just went back in and looked and now the images are at a good size. It keeps switching.

  19. I'm not sure what is going on here. I'm seeing the images far smaller than what I think they could be. I'm checking with one of our guru's on this right now.

  20. Yea I went back and they are small again. Ok sounds great!

  21. @23louda, there has been a bug report filed on this, but reproducing it has been a challenge. I'll report back here as soon as I hear anything on it.

  22. Ok sounds great. Thank you for all your help.

  23. You are welcome.
