Newsfeed can not have a background image? | Forum

I have found the section in the CSS that I want to edit for the background of the news feed.

body ul.ow_newsfeed {}

I can add a color to the background but when trying with different images it will not work.  What would stop it from working with images if it can take a color background?

Any help would be appreciated.

body ul.ow_newsfeed {



Using the Darklets theme.

I have also tried adding it to the head code in the global page settings. like this:

<style type="text/css">body ul.ow_newsfeed {background-images:url('images/cage.png');}</style>

If I just do:<style type="text/css">body ul.ow_newsfeed {background:#000000;}</style>
it shows up correct as a black background. So i dont really understand why it would not show an image.  I have also tried using other images in the theme image folder and they are not showing in the newsfeed background either.
I have also tried a absolute url and that didnt seem to work.
Might be something small I am overlooking.  You can check out the site at www.ringicon.com , it is not finished yet but you are welcome to look through the code.

I did get it to work with creating a absolute link to a folder on the root level, so I guess it just wasnt picking up from the theme image folder. My guess is that the css is coming from the plugin so i should have created the folder in the plugin newsfeed folder. But the way you suggested and the way i am doing it works for me. 

Thank you!
