    I like the layout and functionality. However, background change/edit function is not working for me.

    Hi bfit
    I am sorry to hear of your problem with background edit.
    I have just done a new site with a new background and all was fine (see http://www.chris-dickinson.com).
    If you can give more details of the problem I can try & help.
    It should be straightforward in dashboard>appearance>background & follow the instruction to add a new background.

    Also there are 3 background images in animass images directory
    . The blue pleatedmetalcu.gif is the default background.
    It is possible to edit style.css to change the image
    Go to dashboard apperance>editor>style & find:

    /* =Global Elements
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    
    /* Main global 'theme' and typographic styles  */
    
    body {
    background: url("images/pleatedmetalcublu.gif");

    change this to one of the other background images I included in the images directory (eg pleatedmetalcu.gif / pleatedmetalcuLite.gif) eg:

    /* =Global Elements
    -------------------------------------------------------------- */
    
    /* Main global 'theme' and typographic styles  */
    
    body {
    background: url("images/pleatedmetalcuLite.gif");

    Of course if you want to add your own background image this way then upload your image to the animass>images directory and edit the style.css with the name of the image you uploaded.

    Well I hope that helps and works.
    I apologise for not replying earlier but I do not usually visit this page & have only just done so!

    Thanks mercime for pointing out that I will always answer questions about anIMass theme at my blog http://www.richard-dickinson.com

    Best wishes

    New animass site link (with new background):
    http://www.chris-dickinson.com

    {Link in post above not working due to stray ')' ...!}

    Unfortunately there is no edit post function here so I cannot change the post above.
