Background question

    Is it possible to make the background of the theme ‘invisible’ so i can see the background behind (see photo below).

    It might look terrible, but I want to try and see how it looks.

    Upload an image to your wordpress directory. Copy its image location (with extension like .png or .jpg). Or copy the image location of an existing image. Then add this code to custom CSS, and paste the image path in 3rd line.

    #content {
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-image: url("Replace this with your image URL");
    }

    If you want to use this image,

    then just add this to custom CSS.

    #content {
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-image: url("http://pure-sauce.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/ornate_14.jpg");
    }

    Yea, i tried it and it didn’t look very good, i think the background image is way to dark.

    I will try a lighter background image later and see how it looks.

    Out of interest, what is the maximum file size you would recommend for background image? Obviously i don’t want my website lo load slowly.

    You can also try making a .png that is semi transparent, and using that for the background of your main content area. This has the advantage of reducing file size (because the .png file is small) and ensuring that the background images align perfectly.
