Hello please help....I am following instructions I have seen on a thread here from Admin but I seem to be getting no where. I have put the following code in the Add html/css inserts....is that right?

td#left {
background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahaulpa/images/capatilist mice (1512 x 811)(2).jpg);
}


I also have that in the style and configure sidebars. Where am I going wrong? I know it recognises the image as it is in my header but I am lost after many variations..

Thank you...

no spaces of special characters are allowed in file names. Rename the image from 'capatilist mice (1512 x 811)(2).jpg' to 'capatilist-mice-1512-x-811-v2.jpg'

Hello there..

td#left {
background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahaulpa/images/capatilist-mice-1512-x-811-v2.jpg);
}

Yep tried that in the CSS..nothing happened. I have also tried to just put colour in the side bar and it doesn't seem to be working either...in fact no effect will take on the left hand side. Is there a bug? except catergories and archives....

http://oleuanna.co.uk/ not sure if viewing it will help you help me....but I am stumped. Is it because I use a ftp to load my files to my host? Though I can not see why or how...
