Hi, I'd appreciate some help. I want to keep an image in the background on my current journal on the right side of the browser window, beneath the sidebar which I keep on the right, but extending all the way from the top to the bottom.

Currently, I'm using:

#container {background: #664226 url("http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v435/chipofdale/rightside.jpg") top right fixed no-repeat;}

#header-inner {250px;}

As you can see, I currently have the image as a background to #container, and I haven't altered the page width or the width of the columns. The image is not as wide as the window, it's just placed to the right.

Ideally, I'd like to keep the look as I have it now, but with #alpha either having a relative width, or at least have the entry text more or less centered in the brown background column, while the sidebar is generally located over the background image. Anything from conceptually elegant solutions to quick fixes would be great!

EDIT: I've put on a quick and workable fix by setting a right margin to #asset-inner. But I'd still love to hear more elegant approaches.

EDIT2: Sorry, forgot: I'm using Safari 3.2.1 on a Mac, and have a paid account.

Have you tried putting the background image in #beta instead of #container? You'll probably have to re-size the block because it isn't wide enough.

I didn't try that because it seems the image put there wouldn't extend up to the top of the page under the header element? If I could position all of #beta ...

Yeah, you're basically going to be re-structuring the page layout from scratch and moving #beta next to the header. I don't think that will require a theme layer change. Sorry I can't give more specific help or instructions, but I don't have the kind of time to be designing and coding layouts for people.
