I'm trying to figure out have to have a certain image (say, dots or whatever) as my background instead of a solid color. I followed different tutorials online, but it doesn't work with Market.

I have the image downloaded...but have not gotten anywhere. Thanks!

You'll have to first either designate "no custom stylesheet" in the Market Theme settings area, or choose a custom stylesheet you want to work with.

no custom stylesheet option:   Edit the "style.css" file located in the main Market Theme folder.

using a custome stylesheet:  Edit the "mkt_style.css" file located in the "custom-styles/xxxxxxxx/" folder of the Market Theme files.  (where "xxxxxxx" is the name of the custom stylesheet you've selected)

Add this element to the "body" style:

background-image: url(backgroundimage.jpg)

and save the file.

I did that...saved files under my folder, etc. Not working. Is there something wrong with this code?

Description: Market Theme custom style
Version: 1.0
Author: MarketTheme.com
*/


body {
background-image: url(/linenbackground.jpg);
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: ;

}

/* Link Color */
a {color:#797979;}

/* #wrap {border: 1px solid #000000;}

You may not need the slash "/" in your image reference. 

Provide a link to your site and I'll take a look at the code.

Okay, so following your lead, I went through the code. After searching I saw that the style CSS was not matching what I had coded on my theme. Hmm.

Hello,

I tried changing the background in "style.css but it's not working for me. Can you give a more detailed explanation on how to do this for a non custom stylesheet?

So far, I've downloaded the picture/background to my computer and when I try to insert the name of the picture in style.css-it does nothing.

Please help....

Ok, if it's not for a custom stylesheet, then you'll make the change to your Market theme "style.css" file.  This can be done locally, or through the Appearance editor menu area.

Near the top, in the "Body" section, you'll add a line like this:

background-image: url(imgs/backgroundimage.gif)

and then save the file.

You'll then need to upload your changes, and also upload your "backgroundimage.gif" file to the Market theme "imgs/" folder.

Hello,

I'm using the latest update of the Market theme

http://kevinrobinsonartist.co.uk

Custom Syle: Surfnturf

Loaded image to custom-styles-----surfnturf

Added this code to mkt_style.css within the surfnturf folder

body {
    background-color: #366C98;
    
    background-image: url(bg2.jpg);
    
    background-repeat: repeat;
}

When I remove the background-color the background goes blank but the new bg2.jpg does not show up.

Can you help?

Thank you!

Try putting the file name in quotes like this: url("bg2.jpg");

Hello! When someone more WP knowledgable than me updated Market Theme on my site for me (to take advantage of the coupon code - thank  you) I lost the very cute background that was an image.

http://complimentquotient.com/.....ground.png

Before I resort to paying someone, I'd like to see if I can figure this out, but I can't seem to effect the change.

http://complimentquotient.com/store

This is what I put where.  (below) Additionally, in the Market theme settings, I have "no custom stylesheet" -- but do you leave the color blank under "background color" ?  I took out the background color line in the stylesheet. Was that wrong?

Thanks!

body {
    background-image: url("scrolls-background.png")
    font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
    color: #232323;
    font-size: 12px;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
}

Checking further, I see the image I want to use is loaded here

http://complimentquotient.com/.....ground.png

 

as opposed to here:

You'll then need to upload your changes, and also upload your "backgroundimage.gif" file to the Market theme "imgs/" folder.

 

How do I get my image in the imgs folder ?

 

Thanks!

As long as you enter the correct path, you won't need to move the file.

 

Hopefully I've explained things well in your other post.
