Adding background in Pressrow using CSS

    I have been reading the other posts about changing background color and adding background images, and I have tried all of the suggestions, but I’m still not able to view a background on my blog, perhaps because I’m using a different theme or maybe I’m doing something wrong.

    My theme is Pressrow and I’d like to add the background image: http://positivelyorphaned.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/backgroundtrialflat.jpg

    I created the background image to be 1024 wide by 2048 high. Does this seem like the correct proportions for a background?

    It has a darker border across the top, so I need for that part to always stay behind the banner.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

    The blog I need help with is positivelyorphaned.org.

    Whoops, messed that up.
    Try this instead:

    body {
           background-image: url('http://positivelyorphaned.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/backgroundtrialflat.jpg');
    
    }

    Hello wpadvanced,

    I’ve followed your instructions to positivelyorphaned but haven’t had her success.
    I tried inserting code into footer but nothing shows.

    By the way, how do I get rid of the lines that encase the header in Pressrow.

    Cheers,

    MWQ.
