    I have recently uploaded the new Weaver child theme of WordPress Twenty Twenty theme and its really amazing how much you can customize.

    Im stuck now as how to change the backgroung image.
    I want to be able to have the image in a fixed position on the site, so that is stays no matter whether you scroll down, and I don't want the image to repeat.

    I have found some good instructions as what to do:

    Body
    {
    background-image: url('http://buildinternet.com/wp-content/themes/buildinternet-v2/images/watercolor-bg.jpg');
    background-position: center top;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    }

    But Im not sure where to find the above code in c\the css in Weaver.
    Can someone please help me :)

    My url is:

    farmboyandcitygirl.com/wp

    (any one have any ideas how I willl eventually be able to remove the "/wp" from my url)

    Thank you!

    this is the file you want to make your changes to
    http://farmboyandcitygirl.com/wp/wp-content/themes/2010-weaver/style.css
    (take backup of original!)

    Don't worry that the body tag isn't in there, just redeclare it.
    Try to put everything you embedded internally into above css file.

    Your url has wp in it because you installed it into a folder /wp.

    There might be another solution for this, not sure, but I'd say: install it in the root.

    With Weaver, you should never edit the style.css file. You can do everything you might want using the <HEAD> Section on the Advanced Options page. Weaver had made tweaking the style.css file obsolete. Don't do it!

    And your background issue is solved very simply: Use the standard Appearance->Background menu from the dashboard.
