Hi Christine! :) Background colors can be added in RLM as you have already seen. However, background images are not added in RLM. You add them to the custom.css after you export. In RLM,

click the Layout Tab,
then click Grid.
Next click Properties.
In the class box, name your Grid class (if it hasn't already been named).

After you export, go into custom.css and add that class (if you have not already done so). Add the background image to the class.

Good morning, Brian! Tried that (saw your post on my mobile) and various other things last night but none of them worked so I uploaded the fruits of last night's efforts to the server under the test folder just to see if it was my laptop but it isn't working there either! Not even in the style section of the index.html. SO... I am going to rebuild it entirely this morning and see what that does. Keep them crossed and sorry to waste so much of your time on something so silly!! http://www.coffeecup.com/images/bbcode_ … _smile.png

Christine when you add a emoticon to a post all you have to do is left click on it. I think you must be right clicking and copying the url to your post.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Sorry Eric! This is a new(ish) laptop and I am still not used to the touchpad after twenty odd years of using a mouse! Clicking the left button didn't work so I was dragging and dropping it in. And I don't know what on earth I did with the last page but the rebuild worked just fine - and it's included the background I wanted this time. Which I am glad about because once you find your way around it it's a terrific piece of software and great fun to learn. I like learning. You guys are so patient with us newbies and I am very grateful to you for all your help. Have a lovely sunny day. Chrissie (sans emoticon!)

I see your process and wonder if you could show us the details on the custom css page that you construct

Thanks!
