Topic: Adding A Background Image

I'm trying to add a background image to my gallery on www.jackiepalmer.net/gallery i have tried searching online but have not found a clear way of doing this.

I am unable to use the SvBuilder so could you let me know how to do it through wordpress.

Thanks

Re: Adding A Background Image

If you are using the WP-SimpleViewer WordPress Plugin and have already upgraded the plugin to use SimpleViewer Pro by following these instructions: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … iewer/#pro
... then be able to enter the backgroundURL option in the 'Pro Options' text area of the gallery options window, eg:

backgroundURL="http://www.example.com/gallery/background.jpg"

See here for details on the Background Image options: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … .html#back

Worked, Thanks

Re: Adding A Background Image

I added that through the builder and then tried to edit through the HTML.  But, the background image is not appearing.

    backgroundURL="http://www.graphmaster.com/municipalleague/background.jpg"
    backgroundScale="FILL"

Any reason why the background image will not appear?  It does show up when I use the builder and the file does exist in the location.

Steven, the link doesn't have much info on the background property.

I have svBuilder-Pro v 2.1.3

Thanks!
Juliana

Re: Adding A Background Image

Your background image is displayed if you visit: http://www.graphmaster.com/municipalleague/dayone/
If you choose to use 'graphmaster.com' as the URL for your website, then change your backgroundURL to:

backgroundURL="http://graphmaster.com/municipalleague/background.jpg"

... or use a relative URL.

Re: Adding A Background Image

Thanks so much!  I just created an easy fix then:

    backgroundURL="../background.jpg"

I appreciate the help!  I love the software.
