  • Resolved MissGalinda


    My website is at and the css file in question is style.css

    What I’m trying to do is to have that white background continue on from the header image, and have the black and red background still behind it. What I’m wondering is if that is actually possible to do the two backgrounds. And if it is I’m wondering how you would do that.

    As a side note I figure many things are messed up, I’ve been completely revamping things so problems are everywhere, but I’m hoping to fix this background thing first.

  • Hmmm, I think that as it is, you’ll have no end of trouble making that happen. There’s so much to move around and play with to make your background happen the way you want it that in my opinion, you’d be better off starting from scratch.

    Draw just an html page, a “dummy” page and establish the basic layout you want. Make it work there, then worry about maing that into a theme.

    FWIW, I would use background images rather than putting the image in the header like that. I would also not have that header image start the columns, I’d do the columns in their own divs, and then use background images for that.

    I know it’s not much help, but you have a lot of work ahead of you. While it take a while to start from scratch, you may find that you’ll save time in the long run.

    Of course, someone else might just pop in and say “do it just like this”… 🙂

    I’d agree with vavroom.

    My approach would start by making a wide thin strip which repeats top to bottom, and as it does it fits the dimensions of the css. And then when that works, drop the header / footer on top.

    Yeah, I’ll probably just end up starting over. What’s odd is that I’ve got a friend who looks like she did the same thing I’m trying to do. I don’t know why it worked for her, but it isn’t working for me.

    Ok, I’m good. It’s fixed and all is well 🙂

    How did you fix it? Looks good. 🙂

    Except when you view the page without CSS, then it’s a bit hard to follow 😉
