the page is made up of many parts - Header, sidbare, center, footer - and each can be set to a background or coor. If you want one image to show thru all of them, then you must make teh background for each area transparent (background: #

Thanks Juggledad - I'm new here and I'm having difficulty getting a background image to show. I used the proper CSS code in the BodyStyle textbox:

background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/back.jpg) repeat top left;

(and MANY variations with slashes removed etc) and no luck so far. Maybe it has something to do with background color transparency?

Do I also add
background: transparent; or background-color : transparent;
to the BodyStyle textbox? (those didn't work)

What code should I use and where to put it?

(I'm using 3.4.1 w WP 2.8.4)

Nevermind - I figured it out.. it had more to do with the BodyStyle textbox hiding extra code that I didn't know was there (background color was appearing twice)
