  • 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!
    Thanks.

    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”

    **********RESOLVED*************

    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 🙂
