Continuous Background Color (6 posts)

    Here is my blog --

    http://www.waragainsttheweakmovie.com/blog

    As you can see, there is a black background image, but the black only continues as far down as the image. Past that, it looks ugly, because it's just the red background... How can I get some solid black to continue infinitely beyond the length of the image? Help! Thanks.

    Your options would be to use a larger background image or one that is suitable for tiling. The simpler solution would be to change the background color of the body to black. Change #3A0000; to #000000; in your stylesheet.

    body {
    
    	font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    
    	font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    
    	background: #3A0000 url('images/main/back.jpg') no-repeat top center;
    
    	color: #eeeeee;
    
    	text-align: center;
    
    	}

    I need the bg to stay red in order to be consistent with the rest of the website. I just need the contents of the blog to fit into a black box that expands indefinitely.

    Just go into photoshop and extend the bottom of the image by another 1000px or so and that should take care of the problem.

    With all the posts I'll be making, that won't work. And if it gets any bigger than that, it's just a huge heavy image.

    You won't be displaying all of your posts on the front page.
