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

WordPress 3.5.1
Atahualpa 3.7.11

I am rebuilding http://takerootmontgomery.com/ in WP with ATA and I'm having trouble getting the image for the side shadow to repeat in the header. Ideally, I'd like the image to repeat throughout the whole col two, but I'm guessing i'm not getting the CSS selector right.

I tried doing
div#wrapper {
background:url(http://powerpetition.org/wp-content/...wrapper-bg.png) repeat-y left top;

and it doesn't work. I tried some other CSS selectors and they didn't work either. I already have a background image repeating in the body for the green stripe at the top. ATO > Body, Text, & Links >background:#ffffff url('http://takerootmontgomery.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/header-bg.png') repeat-x right top;

I'm at a loss. Any help would be great! Thanks!!

The link you have doesn't link to an image. Also why not use a box shadow for the wrapper instead of an image?

This site should be a membership site since it so full of good stuff.
Please consider donating which gives you access to even more good stuff.

miles, thanks for making me aware of that fact that i'm an idiot. lol I corrected the link and all is well. I would use the box-shadow property, but I am under strict direction to make this new site look EXACTLY like the old/current one and therefore, I'm using as much as I can from the original site (images, code, etc...)

Thanks for the help even if it was just user error! Happy St. Patty's Day!
