Question about repeating a background to fill browser window
on Jun 2, 2008 at 7:02:20 am

I am putting together a site for my wife based off of a template that she bought. This first link is the template exactly as it comes. You’ll see it has a repeating background that spans the page.

I went in and started changing the PSD file by deleting some of the text, but then when I went to output it and saved new html and images everything looked correct except that it was now left justified and the repeating background was gone. I know how to add the
in the html, but I can’t figure out how the background coding works. I looked at the html and css and I couldn’t figure it out.

I then made some other changes by deleting both text and pictures just to make it look different and tried to output it as images only, and I didn’t touch the html. That preserved the background, but the text that I had deleted or changed was still the same as the original template. I noticed that the text is all in the html code too, so I understand why it did this, but I don’t know how to fix it.

I'm a video guy and obviously not a web designer, so I apologize if this is a studid question. I wasn't sure if this is an easy little fix or a huge programming ordeal so I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks so much for your time!

Speaking of not knowing how html works...How the hell did I get the second half of this post to be centered :)

hello....

your original and mod2 both have the css file import in the header:



and also have a lot more of the original css classes and id attributes in tags - so somehow when editing you removed all of those....

Thanks very much for the info. I only did editing in Photoshop and then output via the "save for web" option. Any idea how I deleted those things in that process? It seems to happen when I choose to save images AND html.

no idea how it got deleted...if you used generated html from photoshop's save for web feature then that is a likely culprit, but not being there when you did it, it's pretty hard for me to theorize as to how it could have happened otherwise...
