  • photoJoe


    I’m trying out the pinboard theme and i want to put a background image behind the container div.

    If I draw a box around this div, which should be holding all the content between, it just shows as a line at top (20px underneath the menu) and not as a box around the content as I was expecting. But if i look in page.php all the content and sidebar should be between this div.

    Any ideas on where i’m going wrong?

    Really hard to know for sure without seeing the site, but if the elements inside the box are using CSS “float” (which is the case with that theme) – then the box won’t go below them unless you have an element below the floated ones that has CSS “clear”. See this for more info on CSS floating:

    Would it not work to just put the background image in the existing container div?



    thanks WPyogi

    i tried putting CSS clear in amongst the mix, but that didn’t work. & yes I’m using the existing container div.

    the site is at



    thanks WPyogi, i just re-looked at where i had placed the clear css & now added a clear all div before container div ends, which makes it work. 😉

    Thanks again for your help.
    best wishes
