Support » Fixing WordPress » Background not appearing after site move — but it's there when logged in

  • kekolsta



    I am ready to launch my website ( tomorrow (10/11/12), but one thing is missing: the background.

    When I am logged into the site and do a live preview, the background is there and it’s fine. The background, to be tiled, is located at When I am logged out of the site, it is just a white background.

    I recently moved the site from a folder on my server ( to the root directory ( I first used Velvet Blues to charge URLs to the correct path — and for the most part, it worked — but a few images didn’t make it so I had to refresh those.

    I got the images in working order, but I just can’t seem to figure out what the problem is with the background.

    Any help (sooner than later) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much!

    That style is not showing up when looking at the body element with Firebug. Looking at the CSS styles in the header — it looks like you have some extraneous code in there that is killing the CSS — this in particular:

    <style> #heading, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { word-spacing: 7px;}<style type="text/css" id="custom-background-css">
    body.custom-background { background-color: #eeeeee; background-image: url(''); background-repeat: repeat; background-position: top left; background-attachment: scroll; }

    You might also want to fix some mark-up errors on the page:



    Sorry, but I can’t seem to find the first section of code you’re referencing. I’ve checked the header and stylesheet — should I be looking somewhere else?

    Thank you.



    If you use your browser’s “View-source” for the page, you’ll see that code in there. Since you’re using a commercial theme, you’ll need to ask the vendor for help with this kind of issue.
