    Default Snippet of code for centering a large background tile?

    Hi

    Please could someone help? Am looking for snippets or tweak or something to enable me to apply a color to a web page background and also a large centered image on top of that (not stretched, just a centered background). Not had success so far. Please could someone suggest what code goes where? Would prefer to do it via linked file and code so that I can preview the result in Xara.

    Many thanks,

    Ali

    Look at Cover's Tweakset. It is at the very top of the threads in this forum.

    Hi Ali

    Here are two methods I have used successfully.

    Method one is to use the following code in the head section of the page.

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    html {
    background-image: url("http://www.goldenarrow.me.uk/goldenarrow_htm_files/bgimage.jpg");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position:center top;
    background-color: #ffffd4;
    }
    </style>
    The disadvantage with this method s that the background does not appear in the editor (it does in preview though)

    The second method involves chopping up the image. See attached.

    Thanks so much to both. I must revisit the tweaks. I got put off once when using one of them, which tiled a nonrepeating background in the work window, making it almost impossible to continue with the design. Note to self... use the tweak after you have finished the rest if the design!

    I think drwyd might have an interesting solution, too. I did find something similar on a different forum, but that didnt render the bkgrnd properly and I couldn't fix it. Will try all the kind advice, and report back. Really appreciate the help.

    But I did try this and can mess around with this if this is easier vs. my other post of messing with the tutorial.
