lost background when CSS edited

    I modified a heading to include an image. Thar work fine, but I found the pages background image was not displaying. I attempted to go back to an earlier revision of the CSS when the background displayed. That prior revision is now in place and looks okay except the background is still not displaying.

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



    The site linked to your wordpress.COM username is NOT a free blog from and being free hosted on WordPress.COM and you are posting to the wrong support forum. This forum is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM.

    Your support questions must be posted to the correct support site for your software and that is here http://wordpress.ORG/support/

    For more on the differences: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/


    Why is our URL http//dolphinblueinc.wordpress.com if we are not hosted on wordpress.com?



    You should link your WordPress.com site to your username in the forum, it is hard to help you if we can’t view your site and your username currently links to http://www.dolphinblue.com

    I can see the background image just fine on your blog currently. Try clearing your browser cache, restarting it and reloading the page. Also make sure you haven’t copied in the entire original CSS stylesheet into the editing area as this breaks links for images. You only need to add the specific CSS declarations that you are modifying.


    Hi, My question is related I think. I just started this and I’m so so ignorant to CSS I’d like to remove the “category” heading from my page. I thought I located it and deleted it, but now I’ve also lost the background colours on my page. Can you help?



    #catnav {display:none;}


    Thank you! Sorry for such a simple question. Worked brilliantly. I know there have been lots of recommendations for ways of learning this, but do you have suggestions for very simple beginning instructions for editing the sites? Thanks



    There are loads of online tutorials. W3C are good and so is sitepoint if you want more of a reference. Download Firefox and the Firebug add-on so you can tinker with CSS in real time and see how it affects the page you are on. CSS has a pretty gentle learning curve so once you get the basics you can start having more fun.
