    i am new using word press. not sure what I am doing...

    i am trying to find a theme that lets me select my background and header. I found a theme that said it can do this - but when I uploaded my image - it placed it below the light blue background that was part of the theme. And also - it gave the dimensions that my header needs to be - and I created my photoshop JPG file to that size - and then it cropped it.

    i just used Twenty Eleven -- and it is doing the same thing. All it did is place an image I uploaded underneath the template art that was already there. I want my background image on the background of the entire page with my copy running on top of it.

  5. Can you provide a link to your site?

    When you upload the background image, you are going to appearance > Background, Right?

    that is the way it is - the custom background is for the body layer;

    if you want a different content background, you need to edit style.css -
    I don't know of any theme that has this option in the dashboard.
