Resolved Background In Blog Page


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi all

I want to apply a background image on my blog page only.

This is the link

http://arte-baires.com.ar/?page_id=123

I try to

"Pageline Meta Settings"

Page Background Image

Setup A Background Image For This Page

and upload to image

This does not work for me.

If I use "Pageline Meta Settings" on a post or on any page

Works fine (not on blog page)

If I use

Pagelines> Site Option> Color Control

Site Background Image (Optional)

Setup a background image for the background of your site

and upload the same image

This works fine in all pages and post (including blog page)

I'm doing something wrong that I can not do it on my blog page only and i donĀ“t find what is it.

:(

Batman, you're actually not doing anything wrong. The blog is a 'special page' and thus PageLines Meta Settings may not apply. I suspect that the reason we don't filter it out is that one may also apply a different template when creating the static page, even though the special page template predominates all other settings.

Try this if you will, but it may affect the blog pages too.

Go to Dashboard > PageLines > Page Options and select Blog Page. You should be on Page Defaults. Scroll down and set up your background there. Let me know if that works.

While we've been told not to use this method, you can also set the background via CSS for that page using .page-id-xxx for the static page number, combined with the background: url(the/full/URL/to/the/image); Something like..


.page-id-277 #site .content, #footer .content  {

background-image:url(http://www.epicurus.com/members/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/backTile.gif);

}

In that method, we seem to have changed the requirement for quotes so don't put the URL to the image in single or double quote marks.

Dear Rob

The Page Options and select Blog Page works perfect and apply the background on my blog page only.

Thanks I learn one more of all you.
