    I've installed a couple now and I just can't seem to get any of them to display a custom background in JUST THE POST AREA. To clarify, I don't mean just the text that comprises the post itself but everything except the page background. Does that make sense? I can get it to change the background, which effectively displays a new one for each page/refresh, which is nice, but I'd like to be able to do what this guy does in this video
    I can only get the custom background to show up behind text, so If I type one letter in the post I get one letter's worth of custom background. So in summary, I just wanna be able to have a custom background that covers everything except the menu and page background. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks soooo much

    That's a tricky thing for a plugin to accomplish because it would have no idea what the html classes and id's are on your theme. This would be pretty easy to build a custom solution for. Do you know any php & CSS? My suggestion would be to grab the post featured image and use that as the background image for the desired elements.

    Thanks a lot for the response. I see what you're saying. I will also try out your solution.
