Background Image STILL

  1. How do I get my background image to stay still and no repeat? I only want the blog to scroll down, not the image. Can this be done?

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

  2. And the address of the blog is http:// ????
    We need that in order to take a look and advise you.

  3. jpskillz.wordpress.com

  4. http://jpskillz.wordpress.com

    That makes it clickable so we can look at it.

  5. You don't have a background image. How are you trying to insert one?

  6. That's odd, because I do have one, I just finished viewing it?

  7. What does it look like? I only see the regular Kubrick drop shadow.

  8. It's a picture of a painting and me standing in front of it.

  9. background-repeat: repeat;
    background-position: 0 0;
    I tried this and it didn't work either.

  10. I'm seeing no background at all at http://jpskillz.wordpress.com/ , and the reason no one can see it is the URL for the image is from within your gmail account. You can see it because it is your account, but since no one else can log into your gmail account, we cannot see it.

    You need to upload the image here to your media library and then put the URL of the uploaded image into the CSS.

  11. Aha! Ok. Let me do that, I'll let you know when I'm finished.

  12. Ok Husdal, Raincoaster and TSP, I made the necessary change. You should be able to see it now. http://jpskillz.wordpress.com/

  13. OK, on the background declaration change repeat to no-repeat, and change scroll to fixed as below:

    background:#FFFFFF url(http://jpskillz.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/jpskillzblogbackground.jpg) no-repeat fixed 0 0;

  14. You might also want to play with the x and y position settings for the image to move it around so that you are to the left a little more. Try the below:

    background:#FFFFFF url(http://jpskillz.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/jpskillzblogbackground.jpg) no-repeat fixed -200px 0;

    You can also play with the second "0" which adjusts the y (vertical) position.

  15. OK one last thing. I sampled one of the blues in the painting and the hexadecimal color code is #5C8C96. Replace the #FFFFFF with that and then if your background image does not load for some unknown reason, the background color will be similar and not the stark white.

  16. By the way, you have a very nice looking blog. Good job on it, and the background image is outstanding.

  17. Thank you...and you guys are really outstanding! I'm gonna go play with this new intel right now! Thanks again, everyone.

  18. You're welcome.

  19. Snazzy. And yes, cool blog. Who doesn't love the Sartorialist?
