Support » Themes and Templates » Twenty Ten: Show Background Between Posts?

  • Resolved John Dimick


    In Twenty Ten, I want my “custom” body-background image to show between posts, like this:

    Schwarttzy accomplished that with the following CSS:

    #content {
    background:url("images/75.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    border:3px solid #4A4646;

    I don’t see a similar bit of CSS in Twenty Ten, but Firebug suggested the possibility of using the .hentry selector:

    .hentry {
    	background:url("images/blacktrans.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

    And here’s how that comes out on my “test” blog:

    But, being a noob, I’m not sure if this is the right thing to do. I have no idea what “hentry” is about (and Google isn’t much help).

    Here’s my “real” blog, derived from the Pixel theme, which shows my aim a little better:

    I don’t want to take any more chances with my “real” blog — it’s messed it up enough already! — so I’m experimenting with a Twenty Ten child theme on the test blog. If I can get it looking good, I’ll switch my real blog over to the Twenty Ten child.

    So am I on the right track using “hentry” for this effect?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

  • Um I think you have seem to get it going, but if not I wouldn’t mind helping out a bit. Anyway I love to see my stuff talked about!

    Yes, it always seems to happen that way — as soon as I give up on something, I see the solution! 🙂

    But thanks for the offer. And nice job on your site!

    I have been trying to achieve the same effect with my site for some time, but I can’t quite figure out how…

    How might I go about using the .hentry selector, I’m definitely a beginner, but would love to figure this out

    Here is my blog:

    Really appreciate any help you can give!


    I’m pretty new at this stuff, so I’ll just got to be sure that I’m doing this right..

    I’m also trying to create a gap between posts. I’m using the twenty-ten theme. I’ve uploaded the image I want to use. The URL of my image looks nothing like does exemplified here. The URL is Yours only says image/xxxx. This confuses me. Could anyone explain to me what I’m might doing wrong? (the page is in norwegian btw 🙂 )
