Hi Eduardo, thanks for your reply, but then I read that you also have to paste this code in the style-sheet... anyhow it did not work until now.

I cannot seem to add a background image either. Here is what I am posting in the CSS Rules box: body {background: url('../images/wallpaper_texture_006.jpg) no-repeat;} Here is the site I'm working on: http://www.compartmentlife.com

Try this. I don't think your image is loading, by the way.

body #page {
	background:url("../images/wallpaper_texture_006.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 #6FF7DE;
	}

Well, that is changing the background color, but still not adding the image. I tried resizing the image and changing the directory. Should I try using an absolute location?

Yep looks like you fixed it with the absolute URL. Pretty paper! :)

Yeah, for some reason it won't work with a relative location. That paper definitely isn't the goal. Just trying to figure out how to modify all the things I need. I thought using a "drag and drop" theme program was going to be much easier... Maybe I'm just fighting it.

If you know css the easiest would probably be to enter some custom css from the theme settings in PlatformPro >> Settings >> Custom Code Something like:

body {background: url('../where-your-image-is/your-image.jpg) no-repeat;}
