[SOLVED] Repeating Background Image for entire site
I'm admittedly not great with CSS selectors and such, but I'm trying to set a repeating image as the background of my whole site.

I've been editing the content.css file, here:

/************************************************** ******************
************************************************** ******************/

body {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
font-family: "Segoe UI", "Lucida Grande", "Helvetica Neue", sans-serif;
font-size: 15px;
opacity: 0; /* <--- will be turned on ( = set to '1' ) with jQuery
after google fonts, if any, have loaded and masonry layout,
if any, was applied */
background: ("http://www.drjeremysharp.com/test/wp-content/themes/montezuma/images/grid.png");

In the red section, I've tried all sorts of things to put the image there, but all of them produce a white background, like nothing's changed. I've tried
- background-image: url('wp-content/themes/montezuma/images/grid.png');
- background: url('wp-content/themes/montezuma/images/grid.png');
- background-image: ('http://www.drjeremysharp.com/test/wp-content/themes/montezuma/images/grid.png');

The image itself is 200 x 200 and grey.

Anything jumping out as obviously wrong? I was able to edit the color no problem, but when I try the image it doesn't work.

Figured it out.

For some reason, this works:

background: url( %tpldir%/images/grid.png );

Your were just missing "url" before the link to the image in your original code.
