Fixed Background Image | Forum

Topic location: Forum home » Development » Themes

I have a site www.social-friends.co.za . I want to have the background image static / fixed.


I am using the Origin theme


I have edited the custom css in the admin page as follows:


background-image: url('images/bg.jpg'); /** OW_Control type:image, key:backgroundImage, section: 1. General Settings, label: Page background image **/
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top left;
background-attachment: fixed;


but just no luck......


What am I doing wrong and what do you suggest I do and how do I do it?

I am not sure about .ow_page_container.

Is background-image: url('images/bg.jpg'); repeated anywhere?

Thanks for your reply


1. The css file I am editing is the base.css file located within the ow_themes/origin folder.


2. The background-image: url('images/bg.jpg'); is not repeated anywhere within the abovementioned base.css file.





If I am editing the wrong file please point me to the correct file and how to edit the file in order for me to achieve the desired effect if I am doing it wrong as shown above.

The page is correct. My doubt is whether .ow_page_container is the right place. It's bg is usually transparent. A Firefox info check refers your BG picture as http://www.social-friends.co.za/...es/theme_image_6.jpg

Jacques: I opened your site to check whether it is working right now.

The site said I am a spammer. :) 

I suppose you are using Antispammer. Beware of that plug in. It has the habit of blocking of your regd members.
