I need help adding a border image to the outside of my page

I would like to add an image running the length of my page on the right and left.
A thin line on the left 5px wide, and a thicker one on the right 30px wide.
Is this possible?

Thank you!

If you are simply looking to add a line, you can add a border to the main body (center content) of the layout. Could you possibly include a link to an example of what you are seeking to do?

Hi, thanks

Here is the original (under construction) website which I am going to integrate into this theme.


The peach colored image running along the sides of are the images I was referring to. Id like to do something similar in Atahualpa.

That can definitely be done, however, it does depend on what you want exactly. If you simply want to duplicate the bars, having one on the right side and one on the left of a different width, you would make those changes in the Layout Container Style section underneath the Overall Style & Config. section of the theme options tab.

If would look something like:

HTML Code:
border-right: solid 10px #FFB70F;
border-left: solid 20px #FFB70F;
Obviously, you should change the hex code to the color you want, as well as change the px to the sizes you need.

I hope this helps!

If you want to replicate the text inside the border you showed me, then it would probably work out best to use an image, which gets a bit more complicated.

Thanks, that get me closer, however I want the border to begin at 60px below the top of the page, and end 100 px above the bottom. In my original site I just had an image that was at the right size. Do you know if I can insert an image there, or am I limited to the border only?

You can change that by editing the padding for the entire layout under the Body Style section of the Body, Text, and Links section of theme options, just go to that section and add:

HTML Code:
padding-top: 60px;
padding-bottom: 100px;
And see if that gives you what you want. Good luck!
