Trying to upload/link bkgnd image for 'Under Construction' plugin (5 posts)

    I'm using the latest WP install with 2011 BP 1.5.1 plugin.
    While configuring website I decided to use Jeremy Massell's 'under construction' plugin which works ok with HTML code and a basic bg color and text.
    To make it look more pro, I now want to place a static image as the background for this page.
    Problem is, I cannot find any info to explain WHERE (which DIR) to upload or place the .jpg file, such that the custom HTML code in the WP/BP plugin can point to it an make it work as a background image!
    There seems to be a little bit of info about what HTML code to use, but not entirely sure if it is right. (Am newbie, so HTML is good for UC page)
    Any suggestions would be great.
    Cheers, Mark (Australia).

    From what I can from Jeremy Massel's plugin, you can include your own HTML code from the options page of the plugin.

    That means you can use any image you want, from anywhere you want. You will be the one deciding about the styles and the images you want to include.

    I would suggest you upload your image with the media tool of WordPress. Once you have uploaded it, you will get the complete path to this image. You can then refer to that path in the HTML you include in the plugin.

    Here is an example you can paste into the plugin's options page (image is Creative Commons Flickr, for the sake of the example):

    Hi Zongman,

    Start by uploading your desired image to your media gallery and copying the File URL for the image. Then you can go into the settings for your Under Construction plugin, switch to "Display a custom page using your own HTML" and insert the correct code to display your image:

    <body style="background-image:url(http://YourUploadedImageURL.xxx)">

    Hope this helps!
