I was just wondering, how would I get my background picture to display properly? In the Shoutbox demo, the “Example: Big Image” background stretches throughout the entire screen. I’ve been trying to set my background to stretch the entire screen but it seems there’s a size limit set on it or something. I also tried saving the “Example: Big Image” background and uploading that to my site and setting it as the background image but it still doesn’t work.
The settings I used:
Repeat: No repeat
When I set the “Example: Big Image” to “No repeat”, then the background image doesn’t show up because it gets hidden behind the website body. However, if I set it to “Repeat” then the background looks like this: http://i53.tinypic.com/21j2alt.jpg (this is the same for both sides of the website)
Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this problem? Is there some code I have to alter in order to allow for bigger sized background images?
excuse me for the delayed response. I believe you can do this by removing the background color from #main in your minimal-skin.css. Then you can use this tutorial to set your background for the body. I hope this helps, let me know if it works :). (I suggest you go for the CSS3 solution since the % of people using older browsers isn’t THAT big + it requires quite a lot of editing.)
