My website is www.jenniferkegley.com. I know how to set up a background image for the page but I don't know if I can or how to set up a background image for the content area. Is that even possible with pagelines?

Unfortunately, the code you recommended did not work. It came back with an error. Is there another way to accomplish this?

Thank you. The code worked. The first time I removed the quotations on accident. However, it only appears at the top of the page. i need a way to make the background image scroll with the page or repeat so that as you scroll down the page it does not disappear. Does that make sense?

Thank you. Your code comes close to what I am looking for. I was hoping to make a background that functions the same way the "body" background image does. You can fill the background from side to side and tell it to repeat horizontally, vertically etc. It seems odd that you cannot do that with this system.
