    Thank you very much for a great theme. I am considering buying extra options to reward your effort, but have a question first:

    How do I change the default background? I don't want to have this worn-out-paper style.

    Thank you for your answer!

    If you post a link to your site, someone may be able to help you with this.

    It's LauraThoma.de

    Thank you! The theme does offer the option to upload background images (those in the stripe at the bottom) but not to change the default background image.

    The background is set in this CSS:

    #bg-tile {
        background: url("../image/tile1.jpg") repeat fixed left top transparent;
        height: 100%;
        left: 0;
        position: fixed;
        top: 0;
        width: 100%;
        z-index: -4;

    Probably the easiest way to change that is to just replace that image with the one you want. That one is 96px square -- but you can likely use whatever size you want.

    Also, if your theme does not have a custom CSS option, you really should use a plug-in for custom CSS or make a child theme -- so that your changes won't be erased when the theme is updated.

    Thank you very much, this works! I am using Your Custom CSS now :)
