Help..background image

+1 Cooper Cecil · August 29, 2014
    <title>Castle, inc </title>
    <style type="text/css">
            background-image:url(Castle logo cropped.pdf);
        background-repeat:no repeat;}

Ok, so I am trying this in Komodo. Its not showing up as a background. At first, I used the image as just an image and it went fine, then I decided I wanted it as a background so I can print text over the top. It is written just like Bucky said...I think. Komodo is saying the colons are not right or something and I get no image. Any help?? Something about a parsing value for background. IDK

I am just throwing random questions out there but why don't you do this?:

<title>What ever the hell you want</title>
<body background="something.jpg">

I mean have you tried this or is it not what you want?

I think that maybe you can't use a pdf as a background image, or you can't have spaces in the filename.

No, I have not tried that. I was going by the css tutorial, ad they write it in the head. I'll give this a try. Thanks.

It must be the pdf thing, cuz I took out spaces and still no go. I'll try another image with a jpeg and see if that works. Thanks

You go Courtney. No PDF in background. JPEG worked fine. Thanks!

No problem  :)

Update. Although I am able to load jpeg images to the background, I changed the PDF file to Jpeg and it still will not load. I even changed the size and that didn't help either. I wonder if it has some copyright on it or something. But, it worked as a plan old image. IDK

Isaiah, your way worked! Yeay! I don't remember doing it that way in the tutorial...what gives Bucky?? Lol

How did you change the file extension? 

Also, though Isaiah's method is valid, it is not common practice anymore to use styles within the HTML tag. CSS styles are typically separate from the HTML.

I'm using a mac. I selected the image, then hit "save as" then selected jpg. It has a jpg extension now. I still have the PFD too. I swapped them out of the index file, so the jpg is in the web file.

What program are you saving the image in?
