I tried to use Better Background for the installation of background photos & color on my brand-new EcoPro site, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas how I can get it to work? I'd like to use a plugin for this rather than some Custom CSS solution, and if Better Backgrounds isn't compatible, can someone recommend one that is? Failing all that, what is my best course of action? I see some ability to change Custom CSS in the Theme Options under Custom Code. Can someone provide me a snippet that would be appropriate here?

If all it does is set a background for the body tag, then you will need to make the contentcontainer and header transparent like this:
 
	#header, .contentcontainer{
	background: none transparent;
	}

If you still need to manually add the bg image do this:
 
	body {background: url(YOUR-IMAGE-URL) ; }

I see, so maybe then this transparency will allow the plugin to work? Is this what you meant to communicate? That's a great solution, in that case. Thanks, Regis :-D

The transparency will make the background of the header see-through, so yes, it should make whatever you're adding with the plugin visible.

One further question: which file I am doing this in? I'm still fairly new to Wordpress. I understand I can make these changes in the Editor.

This can be added in the Platform Pro Settings in your WP admin: PlatformPro -> Custom Code -> Custom CSS

Sorry, but in this case, we're talking about EcoPro.

I put that in, and you can see the result seems to be limited to the very top upper corners: http://hwb.regischapmandesign.com/ Maybe the posting area is a horizontal white part all the way across, and putting in a background (which I assumed to be going down the sides) won't work.
