Adding a background picture...January 18, 2008 @ 1:16pm
I am using the Circuit template and as it is a fixed width I would like to add a pattern background(or change the colour) outside the website. What file do I edit please?

Martyn,

You'll need to edit the "template.php" file, located in the "templates" folder, then the folder for the specific template (in this case "photo_top-circuits").

Find this line:
Code

$TemplateTags['bodytag'] = '<body bgcolor="#ffffff" text="'.$Colors['Text'].'" link="'.$Colors['Link'].'" vlink="'.$Colors['VLink'].'" alink="'.$Colors['ALink'].'" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0" topmargin="0" marginheight="0" rightmargin="0" style="margin:0">';
and replace it with this:
Code

$TemplateTags['bodytag'] = '<body bgcolor="#ffffff" background="'.$TemplateImagesURL.'/bg.gif" text="'.$Colors['Text'].'" link="'.$Colors['Link'].'" vlink="'.$Colors['VLink'].'" alink="'.$Colors['ALink'].'" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0" topmargin="0" marginheight="0" rightmargin="0" style="margin:0">';
The "bg.gif" portion can be changed to whatever file name you like. Then upload that file to the same folder as that "template.php" file. You'll also need to make the outer area of the "1a.gif" and "3a.gif" images (contained in that same template folder) transparent to allow your background to show through there.

adding a fixed backgroundJune 6, 2008 @ 10:57pm
i can change the image, yes. but no relevant tag that I have tried...and I admit I am a novice...gets me the "fixed" attribute ..or the no-repeat attribute. Can someone tell me where to put this, it will help me understand some general guidelines for skinning flexcms. i have a client who has a "watermark" background and I want it fixed in the lower left corner.

ideas?

H,

Look in the template.php file for the <style> section. There you can add whatever you need to control your background image. Something like this should work:
Code

body
{
background-image: url("'.$TemplateImagesURL.'/your_bg.gif");
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment:fixed;
background-position: bottom left
}
