Support » Themes and Templates » Help-Moved Index to Themes, Lost My Background

  • Hi–After upgrading from 1.5 to 1.5.2, I also decided to finally move my current index and css files to themes. Before this, my index.php file were not set up as a theme.

    Everything is going swimmingly, but I have 2 problems.

    1. There is now a horizontal line running along the top of the theme. And the font is different than what I had before the move.
    2. The background image is not showing up. Its white space instead of the background, which should look like a brick wall. I made no changes to the style sheet, so I’m stumped.

    I’ve been looking this over for a couple hours now, and I can’t figure it out. Can anyone take a look and let me know? Thanks!

    my site is

    the style sheet is here:

  • How were you using a theme outside of the themes folder?

    RIght now, all i see is Kubrick. Regarding images, perhaps the path to your images isn’t correct now that you’ve moved things.

    I don’t see a background, true. But I don’t see a horizontal line either.

    The only background image viewable in FF is the common kubrick gray…. double check where your theme is looking for the images.

    I don’t do kubrick….

    I don’t do kubrick either. I switched it back to my cutomzied theme. Its there now. If you get a second to look again, I’d appreciate it.

    As for the image path, I didn’t change anything, so I can’t see how that’s the issue. I also gave that a serious once over.

    As for how I was running without using the themes folder, I believe that since I didn’t update the index.php file when upgrading to 1.5, then my site was still outputting the old index file which was the theme as opposed to the new way, where the index file pulls the theme from a folder, iuf that makes sense.

    Thanks again!

    Ok–so the horizontal line seems to be only in Firefox, not IE. But in IE, the font difference and no background still exist.

    Regarding the image, you say you didn’t change anything, but if you moved the folder to the Themes, then you did change something. And if you didn’t move the images with them, then there’s a chance the path is not correct.

    As far as the ideosycracies between browsers, you best bet is to start whittling away at the validation errors, then correct any CSS validation errors. Once you get there, then you can work on making it work with IE, which is not standards compliant.
    Hope that helps.
