    I tried changing the my background with a png and jpeg template that i made on adobe illustrator but it wont work when i upload it through a plugin for background changing. It shows up too small when you maximize the window for the website and it takes a while to load. the background comes up as white. Here is the link http://www.journeyofablackearedkite.com/.
    using Repeat does not work for this type of background because it is complex. i tried. I am not sure what to do. i tried stretching the background in illustrator but that did not help. What am I doing wrong? i also am using a theme but i decided to change the background. i tried inserting the code in the core. css but that did not work. here it is
    body
    {
    background-image:url('https://pe3.precisioneffect.com:2222/CMD_FILE_MANAGER/domains/journeyofablackearedkite.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/dark-atlantica/library/img/page/grungey-bg.gif'); background-repeat:top to bottom;

    }

    /* Global Wrap */
    #wrap{
    width: 1080px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

    /* Page */

    /* Page */
    /* -> Header */
    #page .header{
    background: transparent;
    height: auto;
    text-align: center;
    margin-top: 33px;
    margin-left: 29px; /* IMPORTANT! DO NOT REMOVE! */
    margin-right: 29px; /* IMPORTANT! DO NOT REMOVE! */
    padding-bottom: 20px;
    width: 1000px;
    }

    What plugin are you using?

    Re Background image - why not just upload the background to your theme's images folder and call the image like so
    body { background: url(images/grungey-bg.gif) top center no-repeat; }

    I am using the Background Control plugin. And just putting the code in the css is not working. So I am not sure.
