If you either put the image in the right place, or used the correct image name it would help.

<_<

 

The image you are trying to use doesn't exist on the site:

 

http://qqfbotique.com/Boutique/images/ground.jpg

 

Click that.

:huh:


If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

"idiot" didn't cross my mind.

 

"inexperienced" did.

 

If you put the image online I could possibly help.

 

As it is you're "flying solo".

Hello All.

 

I'd really like to add a Flash background to the site. Does anyone know how to do this? I have Flash-enabled my site.

Or, I'd like to be able to have a different background for different sections of the site.

 

Thanks in advance.

BODY {

background-image : url('images/osback.jpg');

background-repeat : repeat;

background-position : center;

 

background: #ffff99;

color: #000000;

margin: 0px;

}

 

 

If you have the above codes, the the background colour overides the background image. It may be simple stuff to you GENIUSES out there but I wasted an hour trying to work out why my background was not working.

I have done this, and I have my background image in place. However, the boxes named "Categories", "What's New", and the rest of these type of boxes do not show my bg image. Is there some code line(s) I need to change to affect these areas as well? If so, where are these lines, and what should they say?

First make a backup of your stylesheet then

find the lines that look like:

 

background: #F8F8F9;

 

and delete them all.

That should get rid of that light-grey background color in those boxes you're talking about which should allow for the page background to show "through" the table.

in your stylesheet.css file

add this to the BODY class:

 

margin-top: 20px;

 

 

or

replace the default store_logo.png with your own logo and in your logo, leave some "white space" at the top.

I am having a tough time changing my background picture. Here is what I got

 

BODY {

color:#999999;

margin:0;

background: url(images/template/bg_loop.png) repeat-x #000000;

text-align:center;

}

 

 

I can get the background to work but the text on the page gets dark and you cant read it.

 

Please help....

I tried using the suggestions in thie post, but it's not quite what I am looking for. I want to change the background of the page that is outside of the shop. These changes change the area inside the shop as well. How can I just change the page area OUTSIDE of the shop's table?

 

Thanks.

Where do I find the file to add the above code?

Or should it be placed in the style sheet?

I there a way to put a second background over the main background? <_<

 

example: Main background image is a shaded 6x2500px 17kb file and having a secondary .png file over the main background?

Div tags can be layered with styles for background and body elements, using position:absolute, position:relative, or position:fixed, and a z-index stack order

z-index:1;

z-index:2;

z-index:3; ....etc.

Similar to the older layer tags, Google 'css z-index' for more information / examples..
