    I want to make a site with a fixed background image so that it shows at the edges, and a solid white background where the content is. Something like this http://queenpoland.wordpress.com

    I am pretty new to this, and know very little about css, so any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Is there not an option to add a background image through the dashboard?

    No matter, I can replicate the background image using chrome's developer tools.

    Does your theme come with a section of the dashboard to hold CSS modifications (other than directly in theme files)?

    yes it does, it has a section called css editor for changes that are added over the top of the original theme file

    Yep add a 'max-width' CSS style to it:

    .wrap {
     background: #eee;
     max-width: 940px;
    }

    http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_dim_max-width.asp
    The '940' value is what it is at now.

    you guys are sick, got it all working bar one thing, the images on the slider and at the top of each post no longer line up. Is there anyway to get them all to readjust their size?

    I know this isn't my thread, but thanks for this! It really helped me out.

    Two quick questions, though.

    1. What can I add to keep the header from being included in this?
    2. In my footer, one of my widgets is sticking out. How can I fix that?

    Thanks!

    ETA: Ah! One more question, is it possible to add a drop shadow?
