blogolife footer background image (6 posts)

    I am new to wordpress, I am trying to add a background image to my footer. I've looked on here for something that can help me but I haven't found anything yet that works. I've looked in stylesheet.css for a #footer reference, there is none, I have tried adding a #footer reference in various parts of stylesheet.css and all I end up doing is messing up how wordpress looks when I refresh the page. I have been able to get an image to show up in the footer modifying footer.php but it's not in the background so it pushes the copyright information down. Is there a way to add a background image to the footer of blogolife or push the background image of the wordpress down to the bottom of the page. Please remember I am new at this and don't know all of the jargon you may use.

    Would you please provide a link to your site so we may take a look? Also if you know the theme you are using, that may help us find a solution.

    Here is my link, at the bottom I have some grass and I would like that to repeat from one side to the other and the copyright to be in the soil, preferably in the middle.

    The Theme is Blogolife, the code in the footer is pretty simple right now just basically outputs the copyright information.
