    Hello,

    I cannot see the image I up loaded as a background image. I can see it in the admin area and I have wp_footer in the footer php and wp_header in the header php. But is does not show up in the front end on either FireFox or IE.

    I have also entered the url manually and still nothing. Any ideas? The site is not yet up. If you need me to send something, let me know.

    First, thanks for your quick response.

    The site is not up yet. I was fiddling around with Firebug and I did get it to act as I want it to act, where the image is fixed as a background and everything else, menu, header, body, footers, float on top as the user scrolls up and down.

    What I did in side Firebug is screw up some HTML and the image appeared. Now, if I can just figure what I did.

    I know that sounds really stupid, but here is the html I found that makes this happen:

    html {
         background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #FDFDFD;
         border-top: 0.5em none #FFFFFF;
         font-family: sans-serif;
         font-size: 62.5%;
         text-align: center;
    }

    In Firebug's live edit feature I began to type something and the image showed up, exactly the way I wanted it to show, acting as I wanted it to act. I started to type between "{" and "background:..." That caused the change. I think what I want is in style.css, just have to figure out where exactly. What I did was just screw up some code and it worked. I can send you a screen shot of what I am talking about if that helps. here if that helps. Sorry for this stupid post, but it's been frustrating as hell and the launch date is quickly coming.

    Excellent.

    If you paste that at the very bottom of style.css, it should work.

    Okay, it's all fixed. Between you and Woo, I it's all working. Resolved!
