[SOLVED] Cannot get image to show up properly on main content area

I have a small image that spans the top of the content page, it blends in with the rest of the white page.

In Body,Text & Links, Body Style I have set my wallpaper colour to background: #F7F7F7;

Then in Style and edit CENTRE COLUMN I put the following code in;

background: #ffffff;
background-image: url('(http://mydomain.com/wp-content/theme...jpg)no-repeat;


What happens is the content area colour changes to the background colour #F7F7F7; The background colour seems to override the content area and so not #ffffff colour or background image

If I put background: #ffffff; and the background image on there own they both appear separately. The image appears with te #F7F7F7 color

any ideas?

Well you have two open parents and one closing paren, no space after the closing paren
If you used the { and } remove them unless you put this in the CSS inserts.

Check your syntax at w3shools.com/css
