  • I know that this is not only a 1.3a5 question, but also a Kubrick question.
    However it’s pointed to the 1.3a author, rboren, and not michael or kubrick’s official theme releases.
    i’m having a breakdown in background images showing up in firefox. they appear as expected in safari, ie, and mozilla, but for whatever reason they stop appearing after the third one in firefox.
    so i get the kubrickbgcolor.jpg, the kubrickheader.jpg, and the kubrickwide.jpg
    but the other images, such as the kubrickfooter.jpg are shown in the information and outlines of the dev plugin, yet the images do not load.
    it’s been plaguing me for days, nothing i do loads them.
    is there something wrong in your header image css?

    Just a thought, but Rboren would probably refer you to Kubrick v1.3rc2.

    Oh, i thought this update had been retracted…
    I guess not. thank you! it seems to address exactly what i’d been talking about.
    deep thanks, let’s see if it works.

    Ryan is the author of 1.3? Wow, he must be a really busy guy…

    ok, they all show up now.
    here’s what i did to fix it (in the event that someone in future is looking for the answer) :
    1. call the images for your file’s background structure from your header.php
    not from your css file.
    (for WP 1.3 and Kubrick 1.3 users)
    background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/background.jpg")
    don’t use:
    background: url(<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/background.jpg)

    another trick which seemed to set the footer straight was to remove the specifacations for how to repeat an image which was repeat-x and y to simply “repeat.”
    now all my images appear in Safari, FF, IE, Moz, and NN!
    thanks for the many helpful people who had some ideas, and inspiring direction. there’s nothing like getting a 7 day old sliver of glass out of your brain!
