I am trying every way possible but am stumped. I want to add background image http://localpartners...ages/lpmbg.jpg/ It should repeat. What code and where do I add it? Do I add it to the Custom Code or theme.css? Thanks,

Let's have you start in Custom CSS to keep it simple for now. To just have it repeat, you would use:

`body{background:#fff url(http://localpartners...mages/lpmbg.jpg)}`

That's it and it'll automatically repeat. Even if it doesn't quite look right, leave the code and I'll come back to test. Most likely I'll need to make some overlaying divs transparent that might hide the background.

Thanks, Bryan

I added this into the Custom CSS field, nothing seemed to happen.

What version of PlatformPro are you on? Are you sure you added the code to:

Theme Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS

I'm not seeing it in your source code.

Can you please paste for me exactly what you have in your Custom CSS textarea.

Thanks, Bryan

v 1.1.1

From the Custom CSS area of the Custom Code section of Platform Pro settings

body{background:#fff url(http://localpartners...mages/lpmbg.jpg) }


Honestly, I have been having some weird issues since I installed. If I open the Platform Pro settings in Firefox, everything displays on one page and I cannot save any changes. I am able to get a normal acting settings page using Chrome. Not sure what is going on..

Yes, something is wrong. I see you've customized quite a bit. Where and how have you been making customizations? Has anyone else worked on the site?

For some reason, the Custom CSS isn't actually executed in the pages. The code is fine, it's just not getting inserted into the header. Go ahead and go to:

Appearance > Editor > Stylesheet (style.css)

and drop the code at the very bottom and save for a surefire way to make this work.

Thanks, Bryan

That didn't seem to work either. Nobody else has worked on it. I haven't really done anything other than changing a color in the nav bar in the template.css and that was today. Otherwise, all other things I have done have just been from the Template settings. The problems happened prior to any of this and actually from the first day I had the theme installed. Perhaps because I did not install Base?

http://localpartners...e.css?ver=4.0.0 That's your stylesheet, I'm not seeing the code at the bottom of it? You're making sure to click save correct? Thanks, Bryan

I did. When I went back the line at the bottom was not there. I just did it again, hit update as you can see below, but the change is not taking. http://localpartners.../screenshot.jpg

This came up a few days ago. Add this to your Custom Code tab. body, body.fixed_width { background:url("http://localpartnersmedia.com/images/lpmbg.jpg") repeat-x scroll 0 0 #b2b2b2; }
