Plz help with background image
Hi there,

I am currently developing a webpage : http://pemilu.indonesiavancouver.org

I want to do more with the webpage by changing the whole background with an image and also use a drop-down list for the menu bar.

I have not succeed in changing the background although I have upload a picture and change the code in body style to background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa3/images/myimage.jpg) repeat top left;

I don't know much about html or css, and more I am still using the wp 2.6 version.

Could this be the problem ? or I am doing a mistakes somewhere else.

Thanks for any help. ATAHUALPA by far my favourite WP theme.

At Atahualpa Theme Options -> Body, Text & Links -> Body Style, change this:


font-family: cambria, tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 0.82em;
color: #000000;
background: http://pemilu.indonesiavancouver.org/hiXq1kMxsZQ1(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa3/images/vbg.jpg) repeat top left;

to this:


font-family: cambria, tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 0.82em;
color: #000000;
background: url(http://pemilu.indonesiavancouver.org/hiXq1kMxsZQ1/wp-content/themes/atahualpa3/images/vbg.jpg) repeat top left;

Thank you so so much. Now the webpage looks more interesting :)
But there is one more thing I want to do with the background image.

I want it to be transparent on the whole layout (sidebars and center)
I already tried using this code, but it didn't work :

background: transparent url(http://pemilu.indonesiavancouver.org...images/vbg.jpg) no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;

Where did I make a mistake now.

Donation for sure will come.

:) Flynn....

I managed to show the image on the whole background, as well as in the center and sidebars.

Now I just need to blur/add opacity ? to the background image. Can I do it from the theme option or I have to do it manually to the image ?

cool cool theme ever

How did you get the background gif to show everywhere? I have it as the background and in the middle, but I can't figure out how to also have it show as background for menu bar, widget (sidebar) and footer.
