I've uploaded a background image to the appropriate folder.

here is what my input box looks like:
Quote:
font-family: arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 0.8em;
line-height: 1.6em;
color: #000000;
background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/bg.jpg) repeat top left fixed;
Here is what I see - there should be a background image http://spudveyor.com/

You of course have to either name the uploaded background image to bg.jpg or change the code to the name of the background image you uploaded. Also make sure you uploaded the image to the images folder. Everything looks good in the code. As an example here is the code I used on one of my sites. The background image is quilt1.gif and I added padding to the top and bottom of the Body Style container along with setting the background to fixed so it doesn't scroll.
HTML Code:
font-family: Georgia, serif;
font-size: 0.8em;
color: #000000;
background: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/quilt1.gif) repeat top left fixed;
padding: 20px 0;

What version of WordPress and Atahualpa are you running. The code looks different on your site than on the ATA sites I have.

I was having the same problem with WP 2.9 and Atahualpa 3.4.4 so I added the below coding to the Add HTML/CSS Inserts and now my background image appears.

Code:
body,html {
background-image: url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header_bg.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-x;
}

I tried all of the above mentioned tips but none makes my bg image show.

I also try to make an bg image show in the footer but won't work either.

I have the layout set to liquid on 100% with a max and minimal with for the content

but would like to have the bg image (300px high) to be full screen from left to right ....

Anybody?

I'm running wp 2.9 and Atahualpa 344

Those are still not working for me, I would like to use the graduated background I created. I have version 3.2 and Wordpress 2.9. I don't want to upgrade and lose all my customizations.

turnerbearing, check the premission of the file because I can't view it. I should be able to enter

http://spudveyor.com/wp-content/them.../images/bg.jpg

in the browser address bar and see the image, but all that comes back is a '404 - not found'.

This means eithor I don't have permission to see it or it is not in that folder

I develop my sites locally these days which is faster then working on the web. But the drawback is that I have to know a lot about configurations, firewalls etc and to know how to give others axcess in a safe way, Which I don't.
But this is my local url; http://localhost:8888/sakshin/wp-admin/plugins.php?

In the body, text & links area in ATA I got it
In the css inserts I got it formulated like this;

body,html {
background-image: url(:8888/sakshin/wp-content/themes/atahualpa344/images/backgr.jpg);
background-repeat: repeat-x;
}

Is this of any help?

do this. Download the attached file and unzip it. Put it in your atahualpa folder then in the address of the web browser use http://localhost:8888/sakshin/wp-con...bfa_export.php
and PM me the results and send me the imagebfa_export.zip

Dear Juggledad. Thanx for the effort but it made it worse. In the whole site all the images disappeared.
How to get them back? Did the file add some extra row or column in the database?

Sakshin.

all that file does is export the atahualpa settings. If you think it messed up, just delete the file and you should be back to where you began.

Did it create an export file?

go to a page that doesn't show the images, view the source of the page, copy the source, send me a PM with the source pasted in it and I'll take a look
