Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, I need to add a clickable background image. I'm good with how to do it, I just don't know which CSS file to edit to add my own image. Any Help?

Which theme? Can you use the custom css option or a child theme css file?

Platform Pro.Custom CSS? Can you get me started? Or just direct me straight to the file that controls the background?

I don;t think you are understanding me. I need to crate a custom function with the background image. I need to make it a live link. I can't do that in design control. So I just need to know which CSS file would I find the code so that I can override and place my own image function there.

the selector for the background will change depending on what design mode you are using. Do you have a link to your site?

It's a client site, so I'd rather not. However, it is set up (same design mode) the same as one of my sites here: http://124bpms.com/

Okay on that site your background is at: ` .canvas #page, .full_width #page, body.fixed_width { background-image: url("http://124bpms.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/1081959212.jpg"); } ` so you that selector to define your rule. ` .home-page.canvas #page, .home-page.full_width #page, body.home-page.fixed_width { background-image: none; } `

Thanks Brian. Got that. However, I am having a problem with the previous suggestion. It only shows the background image on the home page, not any others. I need it to display on all pages. Can you tell me what I need to add?

I'm confused at this point. I thought you wanted the image on the home page. How did you plan on linking the background initially?

I did just want it as the background for the home page. I wanted it as the background image cross all of the pages, just any other background image would be. As far as linking it, I used Brian's suggestion and have that part covered, except now I only have the background on the home page and not throughout the site like normal and I have an empty area where the background should be, that is linked.

So now I'm sitting here wondering why that background image is IN the featured slider and throwing off the video embeds. What I did had nothing to do with the featured slider. I really don't understand this.
