There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Graphic image above a colored background

I'm trying to put a graphic image (1500px by 800px) behind the entire body of a 990px wide site. I have been able to do that in "body text and links" with background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa367/images/background-bf.jpg) no-repeat center top;

It works well, except that the image is blue and I would now like to change the entire background to the same blue. However, whenever I do that the graphic image is then behind the overall blue color and is no longer visible.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can achieve this? Am using Ata 3.7.1

Much appreciated as always,

Just add a background color to the background code. Here is an example.
HTML Code:
background: #xxxxxx url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa371/images/backgr.gif) no-repeat top center;

This site should be a membership site since it so full of good stuff.
Please consider donating which gives you access to even more good stuff.

Larry, If I was half as smart as you, I would rule the world. Worked perfectly.

Thanks very, very much.
