[resolved] Set background image behind the tekst by default (8 posts)

    Hi there,

    I've been breaking my head over this subject for the last week but I can't figure it out. And I think it is such an easy thing!!!

    I'm trying to set a background image to my pages by default. So that all my page have the same background.
    I've done this now with a plugin, but that meens that I have to set the image myself behind every new page I make. This is not such a big problem but the thing is that I can't seen to able to set the searchsite so this one hase no background at all. And since my image is a white block with low apacity (so you can see the actual background through the page) it leaves the seachsite without a background wich makes the seach results unreadable.
    I hope you guys can still follow me.....

    And another question I can't resolve is how I can make the image start a bit higher and a bit more to the left so it's enlined properly with te menu and the sidebar.

    This is the link to my site:
    wordpress.het-nest.nl

    I hope you guys can help me!!!

    If I understand you correctly:

    You're site has a background image full screen.

    But you refer to the opaque white background that is behind the content I think.

    On the homepage it's missing as well. You have to set the background to repeat. It is now set to no-repeat.

    If you dare you can add the following to your style.css:

    .entry_content, .mcolumn-pad   {
    background-image: url('http://wordpress.het-nest.nl/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/achtergrond-doorschijnend-2.png');
    background-repeat:repeat;background-color: none;
    }

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks a lot!
    I've added the css and this was exactly what I was looking for! But the strange thing is that behind the text the image seems to be dubble layering or something. Can you see what I meen? Any thoughts on that?

    Thats because your plugin is also still putting its image there ;-)

    Try disabling the plugin and check your pages/posts if you still need the plugin.

    My mistake:

    replace the code I suggested with:

    .mcolumn-pad   {
    background-image: url('http://wordpress.het-nest.nl/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/achtergrond-doorschijnend-2.png');
    background-repeat:repeat;background-color: none;
    }
