Custom BG image on basic WP?

  1. Hi,

    I have a basic WordPress account hosted by WP and I upgraded to uses the custom CSS. Is it possible through the CSS to change my site BG image? I put in the image location in the CSS file but it is not reading it.

    My site: http://usedwigs.wordpress.com/

    I located the exact BG file:

    http://usedwigs.wordpress.com/wp-content/themes/pub/contempt/images/blue_flower/bg.jpg

    Is this an area I can edit?

    Please advise, muc appreciated.

  2. hopefully someone will get to this sooner, otherwise i'll check this out when i get home.

  3. yes, after you edit your image, you'll want to put your new image in like this:
    body {<br /> background: url(http://YOURIMAGEHERE.JPG) repeat;<br /> }

  4. thanks, I tried it, but no go. Here is the code I added:

    body {
    font-size:62.5%;
    font-family:'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background: url(http://www.usedwigs.com/graphics/bg_UWR.gif) repeat;
    background-color:#ffffff;
    color:#333;
    text-align:center;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    Is it because I have the image located on another server? Do I have access to the server my WP site is located on:

    http://usedwigs.wordpress.com/

    Thanks again for your help! Jeff
