I can't setup background theme at Metro Theme.
Navigate to Appearance > Background in my WordPress admin panel. (don't see).
My Options are:
-Background (don't see)

I'm not sure what " (don’t see)" means but, you should be able to click Background and upload an image. Instruction links are ...
For Metro Pro:
For 'old' Metro:
("Note: Only the background upload functionality is available. Background positioning, repeat, and color are not available in this theme.")
If you are still having problems after this, please include a link to your site.

What do you see when you follow the theme instruction links I provided? (also, 'pro' or 'old')
A link to your site would really help. (Perhaps there's a plugin conflict, etc.)

Thanks for your answers but I was confuse. My theme is Magazine Pro and no Metro Pro therefore hasn't this option (background) doesn't exist with this theme. This is my blog http://ibizarentahouse.com/blog it's no finished yet. I'd like to include a background image
Tom, Thanks a lot for your help.June 10, 2014 at 12:47 am #108719
The simplest way to add a background image is to add the following line of code to your child themes' functions.php file. The WordPress customizer or background section will now include an option to upload an image.:
add_theme_support( 'custom-background' );
More elaborate methods are described on Brad Dalton's page using paid and free plugins, or expanding the code-your-own solution to include backstretch. (It doesn't appear to be necessary for Magazine Pro.)
Once the image is added, and depending on the image used, you will have to customize some of the child theme CSS to add background color and padding to text elements, widgets, etc. as the theme is essentially transparent.
