Background Image AND Background Color - is it possible?
Hi guys!

I have a background image for a client's site that is really just an image at the top and then the rest of it down the page is a solid color.

The client's demo site is:


Instead of making one very long image, is it possible to have the background image at the top and then background color for the rest?

If so, how do I code it? I've tried a couple of variations to no avail.

In the Body Style box under Body, Text & Links just put
HTML Code:

background: #E4E2D6 url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/image-name.png) no-repeat top left;
where the color is the background color you want. You will have to determine the positioning attributes for the image of course. This example just uses no-repeat top left which means the image will only be show once in the top left corner. Not sure how much you know about CSS so I'm sorry if I'm adding info you don't need.

Hi again, Larry -

Well, I tried this code but the background image is not showing. Am I missing something?

background: #f1ede4 url(http://www.bestbiztips.com/frederick.../images/bg.jpg) no-repeat fixed center top;

(And I have discovered the background image (on my background image-only sites) shows when I put in the full URL to the image.)

Don't forget to kill the existing - background: #eeeeee; in the AtA Theme Options Body Style CSS or you'll never see your background image
