Hello, I am trying to install a background image on my blog, veggie-wedgie.com I upload the image on my hosting (bluehost) page file manager at /public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images but when I try to put the code on the ATO where indicated, I doesn't work. I have tried all of the above suggestions. Please help, I am freaking out!

check the spelling of the file name, check the permission of the image file, if you can't see it when entering http://www.veggie-wedgie.com/wordpre...background.gif, it won't show up on the page

Thank you for the quick reply...much appreciated. The file name is correct but i dont know what link i should use. I upload the image through my bluhost account on the file manager, like i did with the header, which works perfectly.
So I uploaded the image here /public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images (that is wht my file manager says about where the pic is locate) but I have no clue what link to use for the code

1) make sure there are no uppercase letters in the file name - case IS important
2) use /wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/blogbackground.gif
not /wordpress/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/blogbackground.gif
3) check teh file premission it should be the same as wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/mathstainspeachbiroblog.jpg
