Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
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

yes it is possible. Lets say you put your image in wp-contents/uploads and it is called bg.jpg, ou will add the following to ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->HTML Inserts: Body Top
HTML Code:
<img src="./wp-content/uploads/bg.jpg" class="bg" />
and then add this to ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
img.bg {
	/* Set rules to fill background */
	min-height: 100%;
	min-width: 1024px;
	/* Set up proportionate scaling */
	width: 100%;
	height: auto;
	/* Set up positioning */
	position: fixed;
	top: 0;
	left: 0;
div#container {
	/* This is the only important rule */
	/* We need our content to show up on top of the background */
	position: relative; 
neat little trick the guy came up with.

No guarantees it will work in all cases - this will cause the image to show behing the contents aslo, if you want the image to be hidden behind the container, add 'background: #ffffff;' to the container css.
