    Dear wordpress users,

    First time using wordpress here. My page is still bare right now I'm just trying to get the background images showing before beginning on content.

    I don't know how to make my background show up and repeat-x. I've tried inserting the code in just about every file except it just wont show.

    Here's the website:
    http://www.serenaderevival.com

    Alternatively, here is my style.css

    /* basics */

    *{margin:0; padding:0;
    }

    body {
    background: url('images/bg.jpg') top center repeat-x;
    font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 10pt;
    margin:20px;
    color:#222222;
    }

    h1 {font-size: 18pt;}
    h2 {font-size: 14pt;}
    h3 {font-size: 10pt;}
    h4 {font-size: 9pt;}

    img{
    border: none;
    padding:0;
    }
    img a{border:none;}

    img.left{ float: left; border: none; padding: 6px 0 0 0; }
    img.right{ float: right; border: none; padding: 0 0 0 6px; }

    blockquote{

    margin:15px;
    padding:0 12px 0 12px;
    }

    /* links */

    a{
    color:#1755C8;
    text-decoration:none;
    }

    a:hover{text-decoration: underline;
    color; #CC0000
    }

    /* container */

    #container {
    width:1000px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding:0;

    What do you mean by "Alternatively here's my css", where else were you placing the background code?

    When you create sytles or defintions in style.css for your theme..

    images/someimage.jpg

    is a relative path from where the current file (style.css) is...

    If you try to use that same path in another file then it won't necessarily work unless that file resides in the same directory as the stylesheet (your theme folder)..
