Page Background Customization href tag | Forum

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where (in the code, not the admin panel) the background is generated. I would like to wrap an href tag around it.

I'm thinking it is most likely one file that is being included in all others.  Similar to an ASP <!--include file

btw... I am using Macabre theme.

Any help?  Thanks  :)

I don't know exactly what you're trying to do but I can tell you that Macabre theme uses the image page-bg.jpg.
In the base.css it's on Line 3285 -
    background-color: #353535;
You might also look in master_pages/general.html and dndindex.html for what you're looking for.

Hope that helps somewhat.

@Joe - Thanks Joe.  Changing the background wasn't a problem.  What I'm trying to do is find the page that generates the code for the browser so that I can wrap an href tag around it.

Something like this...
<a href="SomeonesSite.com" target="_blank">This is the background image code</a>

I don't think you can do this in CSS.  You can designate the backgound image in CSS, but not put an href tag on it.  It must be in the actual html/php code somewhere.

I'm fairly new to PHP, but I looked at the two files you mentioned and didn't see where the code for the background is generated.

If anyone can help here, it would greatly be appreciated.
