Background Image Question

  • May. 19th, 2009 at 10:03 PM
I took a Mixit code by The Fulcum, which can be found HERE and basically adapted it for my own uses over at my Dreamwidth account, HERE.

What I want to know is:
Is it possible to have have two background images, one repeating downwards, and one layered on top that is positioned relative to the rest of the page? I've seen it done on other themes before, but I'm not sure how to make it work for Mixit.

Right now, I'm using this code to get the repeating image:

body {background: url(http://i39.tinypic.com/28qz3wy.jpg) 0px 0px #ffffff; color: #555555;}

All I want to do is to place this graphic over it.

Thank you in advance!

I don't really provide support for "Mixit/Expressive" layouts made by third parties and implemented on Dreamwidth (not here, at least). The original layout already has the correct background image, so why are you trying to re-create it?

The original background is positioned absolutely and doesn't move. I'd like it to move, so I originally I just changed that part of the code.

But then I realized that the graphic would "run out" at the bottom, leaving only white space. So that's why I tried to find a way around it (by replacing it with a repeating graphic). Except now I'd also like to add another graphic on top.

Thank you for looking at it, though. I'm scanned through the whole CSS but I'm not very good with coding yet.

You can't put more than one background in the body element, but you could probably achieve the effect you want by putting the second image in the #container, #page, or #content elements.
