Make background static?

  • How can I make the background static so it doesn’t move when scrolled?

    I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find the background in the css 🙁

    Please help!

    Look at creating a Child Theme and work on that style.css file. Alternatively use a Custom CSS plugin and create CSS styles within the area allocated from the plugin.

    Then review background-attachment CSS property.

    Thanks for the reply Andrew. Isn’t there an easier way? 🙁

    Andrew, for some reason child themes aren’t working for this theme… I think it’s the “Theme Options” scripting ??? however, I have tried both ways – creating a child theme and overriding the CSS using the theme options, I even added attributes directly into the existing stylesheet and each time I have failed – any other thoughts?

    I found my mistake was in creating the child theme itself…. my bad 🙂

    Ok, I did get the child theme to work but the page falls apart & reverts to NO style & original images before I uploaded the custom images, logo, custom footer etc… So, I did some searching and found what I thought could be the answer in the “/colorway/functions/theme-options.php” file on line 77:

    $background_defaults = array(‘color’ => ”, ‘image’ => ”, ‘repeat’ => ‘repeat’, ‘position’ => ‘top center’, ‘attachment’ => ‘scroll’);

    and I changed this to:

    $background_defaults = array(‘color’ => ”, ‘image’ => ”, ‘repeat’ => ‘no-repeat’, ‘position’ => ‘top center’, ‘attachment’ => ‘fixed’);

    Thinking this would set the background image to be “fixed” – cleared my cache and reloaded the page and the image still scrolls with the page. Any help peeps?

    thanks for reading, “K”


    Finally got it by adding this block to the CSS Stylesheet Editor under “Appearance / Edit CSS”

    .page {
    background-attachment: fixed;

    I apologize for the prior posts… just eager to get it done is all 🙂
