    you can download image from on your local computer and just copy and paste in your dir.

    sorry i’m still struggling to understand ..i have the image on my desktop…how do i copy it into directory?



    Are you working on live project or on localhost…?

    i’m not sure what that means ..



    And if you find out your style.css than images dir is in the same dir as style.css dir so open images dir and paste your image.



    style-babycakes #masthead {
        background: url("") !important;

    you can directly use this. No required to paste image.

    Firstly copy your image from the desktop. And open your theme folder, goes into patchwork folder, open images folder and paste the image in images folder.

    .style-maude #masthead {
    border-bottom: 10px solid #46433a;

    @shail i’ve tried …its not working …

    @arti singh .. where is the theme folder?

    sorry guys you are talking with some1 with no experience!

    where you upload the files of your theme on your server.

    @arti singh – what folder?

    Here is the simple way. You can use the image even if you don’t put it into “images” folder.

    Do this:
    Download the image on your computer from

    Now login to WordPress admin
    Go to Media Library >> Add New
    Upload your downloaded image here.
    After the image is uploaded to your site, you will see a URL for the uploaded image.
    Copy that URL

    Edit the style.css file
    and replace your old code with :
    background-image : url("YOUR_FILE_URL_HERE") !important;}
    if you don’t see any changes on the site. Try clearing the browser cache.

    i actually did manage to put it into the image folder .. and reinstalled the theme …but nothing was woriking 🙂 i’ll try it your way!

    ah! you don’t need to re-install the theme.
    That will over-write the changes you make to the default code.

    Now that you have uploaded the theme, login to WP admin
    Go to Appearance >> Editor >> Style.css

    and then follow the instructions from my last message for uploading the image and getting the URL.

    Well, I just had a look at the theme and you don’t need to do all this CSS stuff.
    It supports custom background.
    Here, is the easiest way :
    Login to WP admin
    Go to appearance >> background
    Upload your new background image and “save”
    That’s it!

    no but that is for the bakground of the entire page ..not the “header” one ..

    anyways i managed to do it!!! thankssss!
