I've created a custom page template based on an html template, but not getting the results I'm looking for. The site is live at etrumpetlessons.com.
The background image is what I'm after, but I don't have the editing options I should have. For example, the image align functions don't work, as well as some text formatting functions. I think I've prevented the CSS from being called in, but for whatever reason, the page is a mess.
My alternate strategy is to adjust the theme itself. I'm taking my first stab on a local installation at using CSS to modify the theme (TwentyTen). I can call in the header and footer images, but can't get the repeating background for the content to come through. See screen cap at http://drop.io/eTrumpet#. The content area is wider than my background image.
Im my CSS I have both:
background: #fff url('background.jpg');
So 2 questions:
1. Which of my so far unsuccessful attempts is the right approach?
2. Where am I going wrong?
