Support » Fixing WordPress » Sizing Background Image to Window

  • Resolved DCannon115


    I know this has been probably beat into the ground but it is hard to search through all of the results sometimes when you have a very specific question.

    I have a background image that is loaded onto my WordPress theme that I am using and you can see it just fine. The issue is that it is very large and unless you stretch your browser out a lot it will not show you the whole picture.

    I would like to have it so that no matter the size of the browser someone is using, to have the background image that is on the site to automatically size.

    Perfect Full Page Background Image

    Yea I will go check that out right now. I was able to get it by putting the background image on the next line instead of the same one with the image info in it. Dunno why I thought I would do that but oh well I got it!

    Thanks for the amazingly quick responses!



    No problem… please mark this as resolved so everyone knows you’re good to go. Thanks.
