    Hello,

    I'd like to add a background-image behind the front columns. It's easy but I have a pb with the width. I'd like my background image being repeated in all the site width and not only the wrapper. Do you see ? like on this site for instance (not done with Mantra just to explain : http://www.nova-media.fr, bandeauHomePage.
    Thanks for you help guys ! Have a good evening

    Could you link the page you want this to happen to? Or a webpage from the theme's demo site? We need something to go on.

    Sure : yesyouweb.com
    I'd like the background behing AMOA... to be full width :
    url("http://www.yesyouweb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/front.png") repeat-x scroll center center rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)

    Additional question : there's a 50 px somewhere I don't find for the wrapper size. In mantra settings, I've entered absolute, content 800 px, column 250 px, total 1050px and with Firebug I see width 1100 px.
    Thanks for you help !

    The first step you'll need to do is create a child theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    I know it now but as this site is already developped, it's too late, no? (will do it for next one)

    This thread will be read by others, I'm not comfortable giving advice to edit the theme's files that'll potentially cause a lot of headache to a lot of people.

    The extra 50px comes from some additional padding not included in the settings (the hint next to the sizes slider explains this).

    I'm not sure what you want to set the background image on...
    - whole site? That should be the background image (Appearance > Background)
    - #wrapper? Doable via CSS; you'd need to not use a top menu and remove the top padding though.

    Thanks for your answer :-) For the little background image (http://www.yesyouweb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/front.png) I would like to keep the height like this behind the 4 blocks but to have an auto width you goes from left of the screen to right side. And not stooped at the wrapper width.
