I am trying to insert a repeatable jpeg as a background image for the left sidebar. How can I insert it? Would it help to convert to another format?

Thnx, JC

background: url(/path/to/image.jpg);
}

Thnx. I have tried it but can't seem to get it to work. I am assuming this goes into the style.css under left sidebar. I am running WAMP to work on it off line. Could this be part of the issue or I am in the wrong ballpark?

It looks like this:
/* ------------------------------------------------------------------
---------- LEFT SIDEBAR ---------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------ */

td#left {
vertical-align: top;
background: url(/localhost/web/wordpress/wp-content/themes/atahaulpa3/images/Roadstripe3-226w.jpg);
/* more ... */
}

Again, thanks for the help!

JC

Remove the red part, perhaps /web too, depends on where your WP installation is located at. And you should put this in HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Inserts, instead of manually editing style.css

background: url(/localhost/web/wordpress/wp-content/themes/atahaulpa3/images/Roadstripe3-226w.jpg);
