Hello,

I'm struggling to find a way of getting a colour or image to go behind the RLM 'Body'. I've restricted the width to 1200px and would like to get a colour behind which will show to the sides on the screen. I really need to do this in CSS as well, if possible. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,

Richard

In right side > Grid > properties > Background color

Suggestion
By the way, you could make your buttons in RLM with CSS instead of images.

Thanks a lot Mansour - I'll try that and thanks for the heads up on the buttons.

Hello folks, been reading through the posts on here and seen some excellent videos (thank you so much for these, by the way) BUT I still can't get a background image on to my page - everyone else seems to have "grid" showing in their main CSS but I don't. I have obviously done something wrong, but as a newbie to RLM and website construction in general I am blowed if I can see what it is! I am just experimenting with RLM at the moment and the background I want to put in is one that I got with the HTML software - is this not possible? My main CSS layout starts like this - the banner is just how I want it to show display.

body > .row.row-header {
display: inline;
max-width: none;
width: auto;
background-color: transparent;
}

body > .row > [class*='coffee-span-'].column-1 {
background-color: transparent;
}

body > .row.banner-bg {
background-color: #8f46d2;
}

body > .row > [class*='coffee-span-'].column-2 {
padding-right: 0;
min-height: 88px;
background-color: transparent;
}

img.logo.fluid-logo {
float: left;
max-width: 313px;
width: 100%;
}

Can we have a link to your page?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hello Eric, yes, of course - I am so new at this I keep forgetting! The page I am working on (and it's just the framework, no fancy stuff apart from the images) is at www.southeasterndog.coffeecup.com/test/ What I am aiming to do is (for the moment) duplicate the background on the live site. I am obviously doing something wrong but I can't figure out what. LOVE your dog!

For now and just for testing add this to the head of your page directly under the <title></title>
<style>
body{ background-image: url("../SEDTSImages/004.jpg");
background-repeat: repeat;
}
</style>

Hi Eric, yes that worked! Thanks, Mansour - I took a look at that one but I think it's taking it's good old time about sinking in!! http://www.coffeecup.com/images/bbcode_ … _smile.png

Managed to get a background colour on my laptop version, but still nothing from the image (thank you, Mansour - I missed that one the first run round; it was very helpful!) Gotta go offline now but will be back on first thing in the a.m. Have a good day, all. Chrissie
