Have a background graphic that would like to use for site background. Have uploaded the image on a test site, changed the style.css to the name of the image but it doesn’t show in the display. If you right click and select View Backroung image you will see it but it does not show in the regular page display. Also, is there a way to set other areas as transparent so that the background image shows through on the page instead of just around the borders?January 25, 2013 at 12:50 pm #14676January 25, 2013 at 1:55 pm #14718

I’m seeing a background image applied to the body rule. If you want it to show through you need to remove the background from several elements such as #inner. I recommend installing the Firebug add on for Firefox or using Chrome’s Firebug Lite which will enable you to right click on any element to inspect it and determine the associated style rules or the selectors required to create new style rules.

OK. I used firebug and right clicked to inspect element. I did a search for #inner and found one location with ‘inner’ but only shows a color (#333333) inherited from body.home but it it is a different color than the background showing. There was a reference to a background image (bg.png – that was changed originally to be black) that was replaced with the background image I have there now. I’m confused about the logic of the color control for the background and how you make display elements transparent so background image will show through. Is there a codex for this theme that explains this?January 27, 2013 at 1:18 pm #15367
