    I just wonder whether a php function will run in that situation.

    First of all, that link for the background isn't an *image*, it's a *page*. You can't set a web page as a background image. (Go ahead - look for yourself - copy that link and paste it in to your address bar and it takes you to a page on the PhotoBucket site.)

    I would guess the very reason it does this is because PhotoBucket prevents hotlinking of images from their site (as they well should - since hotlinking is pretty much stealing.)

    I don't know if this is *your* image, or if it's one you just found on the site that you like - but if it's *your* image, you need to link to the actual image file, not the page that the image resides in.

    But to answer your question, you have the format correct - your path to the image file is what's incorrect.
