Can someone please take a look at this site:


and tell me what I am doing wrong?

I have never had a problem with putting background images in but this one is driving me nuts!

Heres what I have in ATO Body Text and Links:

font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 13px;
line-height: 1.4;
color: #000000;
padding-top: 140px; padding-bottom: 40px;
background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/soil.png) repeat top left;

Thanks friends!

What's the problem? The img is there...

If you're thinking about the sidebars having a white background, you need set their backgrounds to transparent...

Sorry I should have been more clear in my body. The problem is that the background image is also showing through the center section as well as the background where it should be.

I resolved this issue.

In Center column style I added under
padding: 10px 15px;

the following:

background: #ffffff

which changed the center column background from transparent to white (or color of choice)

hope this helps someone!
