Not sure whether you want the site in general to be a fixed size in which case you would need to go into the style properties and set a width in Page width controller.

if your wanting the image to repeat you'll have to set the repeat value to repeat-x (horizontal repeating) repeat-y(vertical repeating) or repeat (repeat on the x-y).


Unsure what you are wanting to do. BTW you should have a " , "before jpg rather than " ."

I've been trying to figure out how to get one image to expand to fill the entire background. Tried all the CSS tricks I found from Google and none of them worked. Right now I'm just using a seamless tile but have been trying to get a dark smoke/fog background enabled and never could get it to work. Even tried making the image seamless tiled but apparently that is currently beyond my ken with Gimp. :sick:

Sometime for certain imagery you might have to do some photoshop editing. For example my background image needed masking and the bottom part needing a transparent area so the image could look seamless with the joining background-color on body.

You may have did it correctly but just need to do some editing to the actual image i'm guessing.
