[Resolved] Body background image

  • Hi,
    I don’t find at all how to change the body background image in the CSS. I would like to change the body background (which is entirely white) and replace it by an image (and not a colour).

    Thanks again.

    Does your theme have a Custom CSS option? If not, you’ll want to add that so that your changes are not overwritten when the theme is updated. You can easily do that with a plugin such as JetPack or My Custom CSS. Once you have that set up, post back with a link to your site and someone can help you with the code to add for the custom background.

    Maybe you need this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/background-manager/ ?

    WPyogi rules!

    Thanks again for your reponses.

    So I tried all the plugins, but I don’t know why… There is no modification at all. I can change the background of my website, but not the background of the content. I even tried to just modify a post body, but it doesn’t work. O_o It still is white.
    Before, I tried to add the usual

    background-image: url(‘images/background.jpg’);

    to the body, but it didn’t work too => still white.

    Here is the CSS of the Delicate theme I’m using + my site : http://lovely.lesson.free.fr/

    Sorry about the excessive CSS.
    Thanks again for your help, I found the answer ! ^^

    Here is what I had to modify (and not the body itself).

    .content-pad {
    	width: 970px;
    	background-color: #fff;

    Then I replace the “-color” by :
    background--image: url('yourimage.jpg');
