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

Background image on homepage only

I'm using WP 3.9.2 and Atahualpa 3.7.11

I'm trying to add a background image to the home page of my site by adding the following code to the html/css inserts :

body.home {background-image: url(wp-content/themes/atahualpaAJT/images/bck3.jpg);
background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
Problem is that the post container seems to be covering my background and pushing it downwards. You can admire the disaster here :


Could you please tell me what I'm doig wrong ?

Thanx in advance

Why are you still on an old Atahualps release?

you are not doing anything wrong, the post formatting has a background-color of #000000 (black) and that sits on top of the body background.
