    you can download image from http://i1214.photobucket.com/albums/cc494/giuliap90/back.png 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?

    @shaileshsavaliya

    Are you working on live project or on localhost…?

    i’m not sure what that means ..

    @shaileshsavaliya

    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("http://i1214.photobucket.com/albums/cc494/giuliap90/back.png") !important;
    }

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

    @loveateverybite
    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 {
    background-image:url(images/image.jpg);
    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 http://i1214.photobucket.com/albums/cc494/giuliap90/back.png

    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!
