Modifying Kubrick to use a seamless pattern as background (7 posts)

    I've modified the WordPress 2.5 default (Kubrick) theme to use a background that's a pattern image instead of a solid color.

    I now have a huge problem: how do I make the background seamless? I've recreated the header, bg, and footer using my pattern background. Now the pattern does not match. How can I solve this?

    The Kubrick theme is centered in the middle of the browser window. Is the best way of fixing this positioning the entire blog in absolute terms instead of relative? How? Or can I use transparency for my images, so the only location of the pattern is in the background image file?

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Richard

    if you didnt notice, a mod swept in and deleted your reposting of this question.. its bad form to do that. Just for future ref.

    As for your question, your asking rather generic design questions - I really doubt anyone can provide real helpful advice, unfortunately.

    I had already edited my old post. It said <stupid>Removed, the post title didn't reflect my question.</stupid> ;-) So I'm happy someone took it away. Had there been a delete button I would have pushed it myself.

    Too bad you're pessimistic about someone helping. I would have hoped someone could at least help as to how one could change the position of the Kubrick theme from relative (centered) to absolute (i.e. "blog { left: 100px, top: 100px }").

    well, Im not pessimistic, Im a realist.

    1. your asking design questions without anything visual for someone to look at.

    You want decent help, then provide a link to something thats tangible, and then ask consise questions, instead of generic ones.

    Good idea, I've created a testsite here. That does make it a lot easier to observe the problem!

    Thanks

    thats adorable, and you really cant tell that they dont match up. youre talking about like, the footer, right? and the header, the lines along the sides? you dont even see that unless you look really hard.

    Heh, thanks :-D It's for my baby daughter. Yep, you got it, the sides aren't matching up. Nice to hear it's not that big of a deal, though.

    Knowing myself, though, this is going to annoy the hell out of me by the end of the weekend. I guess I could fix it if I only knew how to modify Kubrick to become an absolute-positioning theme!
