Background Color and Image (6 posts)

    I customized my theme with a background color and image. No matter what setting I use (tile, center, right, left, etc.) I see nothing at all on the live site. No color, no image. What am I missing?

    The reason they aren't appearing because we have other items on top of it. Once we hide them, your custom background would appear:

    header { background: none; } /* hide background of top part */
    #main section { background: none; } /* hide background of middle part */
    footer { background: none; } /* hide background of bottom part */

    You can add these custom CSS to the bottom of your main theme's style.css or your child-theme's style.css; or if you have the official WordPress Jetpack plugin installed, you can simply go to Appearance --> Edit CSS and add them there.

    If you wish to hide more background of any part, please feel free to request in your reply. I'll reply as soon as possible.

    Hope this helps,

    @Nhat: will you please stop encouraging people to add or edit their main theme's stylesheet. They need to use a child theme or a custom CSS plugin.

    Hi htarry

    I have a blog about Expressions child themes at http://www.kevinsspace.ca/2013/08/expressions-basic-child-theme/

    I strongly encourage you to go through the blog. It shows you how to use child themes and even gives you a child theme starting point to download.
