Background Image

edited December 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
How can I take an image and make it the background of my entire website... can I just use the normal css code or does it have to cover multiple different places? My knowledge of css is enough to know how to read what is already there but not enough to troubleshoot and make new entries... Image URL...


  • You would juts have to modify the vanilla.css for whatever style you are using.
  • but where in the vanilla.css? I would like it to be in the discussions/comments/content window not the panel and banner
  • You would look in /vanilla/themes/vanilla/default if you are use the vanilla theme with the default style.
  • jimw, how did you know wateraddict is working with vanilla? there is no mention of it.. 0_0
  • I am using vanilla, it is the category.... I know where the vanilla.css is... I dont know where in the file the section about background would go...
  • Look for the body tag and change the background-image to the one you want.
  • ok, I got my image to display, how can I make it so that discussions that you havent read before are transparent?

    Also, how can I make the "Vanilla X.X.X is a product" transparent?
  • if you've got a white content background why don't u just do this?
    #Content { margin:0px 18px 0px 235px; background: url('') top left no-repeat #fff; }
  • Yeah but the pic is long and it looked better as a whole page background, I now decided that having a background image seemed to take away from the content...
