Template: World News II Joomla: 2.5.7

trying to find line or lines in CSS code for the main page background image so that I can set my own. replaced bg1.jpg file with another image and named it bg1.jpg. The image appeared but only changed a small square at the top.

Images are being pulled apparently from style 1.

I want to have the background image show off to the sides of template content.

Also can the image stay fixed while the page is scrolled? This would avoid ugly empty space when scrolling past image.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

You can add below css in to css/override.css and enable css override from template settings > advanced settings > css override "on".

Example, copy your background in to following folder: templates/gk_twn2/images/bg.jpg

Then code will be
Code: Select all
html { background: url("../images/bg.jpg") no-repeat fixed center top transparent;}
body { background: none!important;}

First line adds background image to html itself.
Second line removes background image from body element which is at top behind logo.

See you around...
