Set style background in html and not...

Hello all. It's a little late here so I may have missed if someone has asked this elsewhere.

I have loaded a template and I have some background images, the location of the images are set in the CSS file.

If I change the photo then the CSS changes to reflect this.

How can I remove the image location from the CSS and add it to my html as a style?

Many thanks.

Background images are always referenced in the CSS file. If you want to have background images, they will have to be referenced like that.

If you want them to be 'foreground' images, you can use HTML to add them, but the styling is still done with CSS.

Using 'HTML style tags' would be like going some 25 years back in time. Site Designer is not made for that. But if you insist, you can do it the old-fashioned way with the HTML Editor.

The reason I asked about this is I am learning laravel and following a tutorial on how to make a dynamic front end from a static html page.

This involves creating a database to populate areas of the static layout by using the static layout with the blade template engine.

So, for most things it's all great, but when the images are inside the CSS file then they can't be replaced using the blade syntax.

There's obviously a way to programmatically rewrite the CSS on an image change on the database side, I will look at that.

Many thanks
