How do I manually change the background for my pages? and not have one backgrnd

  1. I want to change the background for my pages separately. Dont want one background for the whole site! How to do so?

    The blog I need help with is cgicorner.com.

  2. Howdy cgicornr!

    Which pages would you like to change the background of?

  3. The showcase page! Also, I want to know how to customize the backgrounds of all the future pages.. Thank you

  4. Hey again!

    This simple code should do the trick!

    /* Showcase Page */
    body.page-id-26 {
    background: #fff !important;
    }

    In the future, if you would like to change the background of a page, you'll need to copy and paste the same code. Then, replace the number with the Page ID number. You can find this number in the URL while editing your page.

    Hope this helps!

  5. By the way, you can change the color from #fff with a name, HEX, or RGB. You can find a wide array of colors at http://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_names.asp.

  6. Thanks Eallas. Can I use a custom PNG as the background? If so how? And this code goes into the CSS section or the HTML section?

  7. You're welcome!

    The codes I'm providing you go into the CSS section

    To use a background image, you can use this code instead:

    /* Showcase Page */
    body.page-id-26 {
      background-image: url('http://i.imgur.com/7CDO3RM.jpg');
    }

    All you need to do is change the URL.

  8. I want to use a background image uploaded to WordPress gallery? what url must I use in this situation? Thank you

  9. To obtain that URL, do the following:

    1. Go to http://cgicorner.com/wp-admin/
    2. Click on Media
    3. Click the picture you wish to use
    4. At the right, there should be a URL you can copy
  10. Thanks Eallas. I think you answered my questions. We can change the status of this topic to "resolved" or "closed" Have a great day!

  11. You're welcome! Have a great day as well and happy blogging!
