Support » Theme: Customizr » add or change background image

  • Resolved siepos


    I’m using the Customizr theme version 3.1.6.
    I would like to change the white background into a background with a picture.

    I’f try’t it bij typing the code in the ‘own CSS” space on the theme-page. I am sure that i use the right url, …./upload/01/background.png. But, what ever i do, i don’t see any change. When i use the code to change the background color, then i see result.

    Dear Rdell,

    Thank you for your help, but… what ever i do, were ever i put the code and the right link of the picture, it dosn’t appear.

    I yuse this code:

    background: url(/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/background-origineel.png) repeat fixed 0 0 ;

    Maybe you could tell me how i can solf the problem??

    Thank you.


    Need a link to your site to take a look.

    Here the link tot the site (under construction)

    Here’s what I’m seeing in Firebug:

    body {
      background: url("/wp-content/uploads/2014/background-origineel.png") repeat fixed 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

    Definition of rgba:

    An RGBA color value is specified with: rgba(red, green, blue, alpha). The alpha parameter is a number between 0.0 (fully transparent) and 1.0 (fully opaque).

    Now look at the 4th parameter in your rgba code?

    Hi Rdel,

    I’f changed the alpha-parameter into different values. The effect is that the background of the page changed between with (transparant) en black. No picture shows up.

    In Firebug i see now the warning that says : “loading url failed”. On that i try’t to modify the adres bij delete the adressparts “2014” and/or “01”. Sorry, no result.

    More possibility’s??

    Enjoy your weekend.


    Here’s an example of one I use:

    body {
      background: url("/wp-content/uploads/_media/scmtc/scmtc-bgrd.png") repeat fixed 0 0 #FAFAFA !important;
      font-family: "Open Sans",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
      margin-top: 0;

    I tend to setup a fixed folder to store my images (_media/scmtc). If you’ve used the Media library, I’d have expected to see:
    “/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/background-origineel.png” ie the 01 is missing in Firebug. That error message also suggests you’re not pointing at the right file.

    On my previous post, I was wrong about your rgba value, but look at my code above and I’m not using any rgba code.

    Hi Rdell,
    I’m sorry to say, but it doesnt work.

    I’m sure the link to the image is correct. With FileZilla i have made a new map and place the image in it, copy the adres in to the codefield for CSS; No result. After correcting these steps and once more checkt the adres of the image in the origineel map …/2014/02/kerstbal.png and checkt the use of capitals in the code and checkt the permission of the maps and files; no result.

    Firebug keep saying that the url not could be loaded.

    Thank you for your patience.


    Are your file permissions OK? (0644 works)

    Just tried to access and get a 404

    The permission are ok. Most of them are 777.

    I really don’t understand why the image-file, kerstbal.png, not be seen. It’s realy there.

    I send you by mail a screen-image of Filezilla.



    Hi Rdel,

    I’f found a solution! Probably not the best, but..
    I use the full url relatieve url: body {
    background: url( repeat fixed 0 0 #FAFAFA !important;
    font-family: “Open Sans”,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
    margin-top: 0;

    Close the discussion or could we find a better solution?


    I think that will do. Goed! Goed gedaan!

    Thanx for all your help.


    Je nederlands is goed!
