How Do I Add Background Image?

Recommended Posts

How do I add background image to my web page where I have a hidden cache listing? The default color is green but, now and then I see people that have included a picture that has overriden the green color. This is really cool and adds a great personal touch but I can't figure out how to do it.

First you need to understand HTML code, next you need a HTML EDITOR like Web Weaver. This will make it easier to make or edit cache pages or a web page.

Here is the home page for Web Weaver.


Right clicking on any empty area on a web page will bring up a small window, click on VIEW SOURCE will show that web pages HTML code.

Goto my profile page and follow the link to my web page. This is a very basic web site that I put together using Web Weaver.

Feel free to print the source code and compare or study how I put it together.

You can even cut and paste the source code from my page and copy it to any web editor.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Paul

Add the following to your text, when creating/editing your cahce page.


<body background="http://www.locationofimage.com/image.jpg">

The http://...image.jpg part is the exact location of the image you wish to use. I would suggest you upload the image to your cache page, then click on it so it appears in it's own window to find out the location.


Check out this cache as an example. You can click on the uploaded image "Cache Type" to see the actual image http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/56220_500.jpg . So to add that image to your site you would make the text line read:


<body background="http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/56220_500.jpg">


Really it is very simple to add on your own if you do not want to mess with HTML programs and just want to add this little thing. ENJOY! :P Good Luck.
