page background- modify kubrickbgwide.jpg or create own (5 posts)

    I have the newest version of wordpress installed with the default theme, and I am currently trying to create a different border for the page layout instead of the kubrickbgwide.jpg gray one.
    But I cannot find kubrickbgwide.jpg in the code at all.

    I was wondering could someone help me in regards to changing it or creating my own for the default theme? Or if not is there another simple theme that I would have an easier time with?

    I'm trying to have a magenta border with a white background for the page (with the blueberry jpeg in the back, and a footer with the same magenta, etc.)

    here is a link to my website:


    I also do not know why the header is off by 1 pixel, but I would like to solve my initial problem first.

    Thank you.

    so... for the wide image bg update the following file:
    (modify this file and upload again, so you wont have to change the code)

    Second issue, the spacing, on screen.css the best way to update (so you don't have to change the code a lot) is search for the ID:
    #header (line 248) and where it says:
    margin:0 0 0 1;
    change to
    margin: 0 0 0 -2px;

    Hope it works! Good luck!

    What I did was delete the kubrickbgwide.jpg on http://johnibanez.net . Worked like charm! :D

    Thank you for the advice!

    the first thing you told me made perfect sense, I did it no problem.

    However, for the second piece, I changed the margin from 1 to -2px, however the header image doesn't move at all.

    is there something I'm missing? or is there something that is overriding it?

    any help would be greatly appreciated,

    thank you.
