    Hi Kriesi,

    I have pretty much set up the whole site but I am stuck on setting an image for the content area.

    I have the image for header and footer working great, but not sure how to do the same for the content…

    http://soulmatestars.com

    Just like the header and footer the content will have an image that extent for left to right. havs blue side strips with stars and central yellow area. This needs to be stretch as the content increases in length.

    Please advice on how to achieve this… I love the theme, (the client wants two drop down menus just like newscast has), and this is the artwork that I need to work with.

    Help!

    Hey,

    add following code to style1/2/3/4.css (at the very bottom):

    #main{
    background: #fff;
    }

    Adjust the background value to your needs (other color, image, etc.).

    Dude,

    thanks for the reply,

    When I added

    #main{

    background: #001067 url(../images/skin1/content.jpg) repeat-y center 0;

    }

    at the very bottom of style1.css,

    that, this is what it looks like:

    So it seems the content area is defined at teh 100px in the center. I want my image to stretch from side to side. To give you an exact idea:

    Please help!!!

    Hi Dude,

    Do you have any idea of how they accomplished this? I want to do something similar. In my case I want then jpg from the header to fill in on the sides of the site. That way I would only have text on the body and footer and the header and the sides are only have an image. Making my site look like a frame

    Please advise

    Thank you

    Hi ngonzalez,

    You would need to contact the individual for the exact how-to or try inspecting their css on the live site.

    Regards,

    Devin
