header image trough header+content

4 posts in this topic


I need to center my background image behind the navigation and content. I tried with this code:


#branding .content {
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-<span class="searchlite">image</span>: url('');
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-position: center;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-repeat: no-repeat;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-height:600px;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-width: 995px;
   <span class="searchlite">background</span>-left: 300px ;

But the image remains cutted of. I use a full width layout and it has to be responsive. I tried also with a z-index position...but it did not work out....

Can you help me?

Thx Corina

Hi Corina,


The CSS you're using is incorrect. It mixes stylesheet CSS with inline CSS, which is not the best way to achieve results.  I'll recommend you study the resources here to learn more about CSS:


You should apply the background to the site using our internal settings, found at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Color Control.  There, you can upload a background image, without CSS, and set the vertical alignment and horizontal alignments correctly, without custom coding.


As for the brand logo, that will require some CSS, but the method of doing that is probably best achieved with a plugin we offer called Sexy Snips, found in Dashboard > PageLines > Store > Plugins > Top Free.  Just install and activate it, and Sexy Snips will provide you with the CSS to center a branding image.

Hi Rob. Thx for your response.

Css is not a problem, i'll correct the code...I tried before the background image option, but i do not liked it at all. Infact, it is not a usual background...more a header background entering in the content area.

when i scroll down the page, the bg-image has to scroll up and to disappear and with this method i did not found out the css selectors of the background...

I will try with the sexy snips and let you know.

      Hey Guys, i have been having some fun with PL5, on my test site, still learning and trying to master 3 sections a day, am happy the launch has been postponed its for the best lets master it as much as possible.
      But we still gat to eat with DMS for now, so my issue has been on how to reduce my pin pad size in pinspro, right now it display 3 in a row, like the default theme, but i want it to display 4 in a row, if i reduce my screen resolution to 90% it becomes 4 in a row, that is the perfect size, i cant see any css on the forum be able to reduce the size,  so guys please, please this is very important, i need the css to adjust the size, of all the css @Danny has provided on the forum i cant see anyone that focus on the size reduction except on hiding the bottom meta area, mine is just to reduce the size, checkout the images below, the image with 4 rows is the perfect size i crave to have, while the pinpad with 3 rows is what i currently need to change.
      Thanks Guys for your support all this while.
    • CSS Hero question
      By janpeeters+
      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' ( I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs ( For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan

    • Background overlay z-index
      By dawsonbarber+
      I added a background image to a container that has a textbox in it, then added a background overlay.
      The overlay "overlaid" the textbox content as well as the container background image.
      Fixing it was simple enough: I reduced the z-index on .pl-bg-overlay to 0.
