Changing background image

  • Dec. 17th, 2008 at 12:36 PM
Yesterday I found a how-to post in this community with the instructions how to create a changing background image via theme layer. Today I wanted to post a request for a little clarification, on how to make the background image repeat all the way down(as after I followed those instructions, I could only get the row of images appear at the top). But for the life of me I cannot find that post. I looked through all possible tags including "header", "background", "theme layer".

In a word, I want the snowflakes on my background to appear as if they are falling down.

Help please?

I'm not sure if this is what you want but I was able to get snowflakes scrolling down on just the left-side of the content using repeat-y and changing position to 0% in your CSS.

Or maybe you already got it that way you want?

hey, thanx.. but no, not exactly that. i want to add a few different snowflakes images, and i understand that every time i reload a page, they will change position. i thought that would be the outcome. i don't need for the snowflakes for constantly move, that would be annoying... but in worst case scenario, i think i can make an animated gif

Oh, so you're probably looking for a script for random backgrounds. I remember seeing codes for random headers and random movie quotes so maybe someone will be able to help you.

I'm confused because you seem to be talking about several unrelated issues... it looks like you fixed any problems with the background image not "tiling" or repeating down the page you might have been having.
If you wanted the background to actually look like falling snow, then I'm pretty sure the only way to do that is to make an animated GIF.
You told weehobbit you were looking for something like a "randomized" image script. Maybe this post is what you were thinking of? You could certainly set up some code in a theme layer to randomize different background images, but that doesn't make it animated.
