Have tried everything but can't get basic body background image to display. I can change background to a basic color but it wont pick up an image. Have checked path to image and even tried creating a new image folder in the root and pointing to that but no joy at all. Please help! Thanks.

I've tried
background: http://www.mydomain.info/wp-content/...es/myphoto.jpg
background-image: as above
background image: transparent as above
Also tried all these but with a .gif file
Also tried both .gif and .jpg but without the http://
I use godaddy and WP is directly in the root of my domain alias so the url address does not have /blog or anything like that it's just mydomain.info

I'm also having the same problem and I've tried all those things. I even noticed the example has atahualpa3 so I took that out and matched it with where the file is on my server. I can also get a color to show.

It should be

HTML Code:
background: url(/path/to/image.gif);
instead of

HTML Code:
background: /path/to/image.gif;

odd. This is what finally worked:

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

Took the slash out before wp-content. Go figure... Now I'm on to the next problem
Thanks for your fantastic theme!!

Then you probably have your blog in a subdirectory yourdomain.com/xxxxx/

In that case use

HTML Code:
 background: url(/xxxxx/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/bg.jpg) repeat top left;
because with your example it won't work on all pages, with permalinks on

I still can't get it to work and don't really understand what you're telling me. Please can you be very specific. I have tried putting the brackets in but that doesn't do it. I'm absolutely stuck and just can't get any further.

does url = http://www.mydomain.info
I'm assuming yes

Thanks

Flynn gave me this advice, perhaps it will work on your webpage as well. Now I have a background image on my webpage http://pemilu.indonesiavancouver.org (take a look)

url = url
the code he gave me is :
background: url(yourdomain/wp-content/themes/atahualpa3/images/bg.jpg) repeat top left;

atahualpa3=atahualpa depends which you are using

Good luck

Yes, I second that. In the version I downloaded, it was Atahualpa not Atahualpa3.

The www part is probably wrong and should be removed

background: url(/www/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/ghosted.GIF) repeat top left;
