Newbie needs help customizing
« on: June 25, 2005, 05:22:22 am »

I am very novice  at this and would love it if someone could explain in lamemans terms on how I could change the theme of my gallery to match my site.  I want to put the same background as seen here:

www.beyondpaper.net   

on to here:

Thanks,

Michelle

you have to options, place the background in the template.html as the page background. Or in the style.css find

body {
   font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size: 11px;
   background-image: url(images/filename.jpg);
   color : #333333;
   margin-top: 10px;
}

and add the correct background image, positions, repeats, etc. If you don't know css, just goggle the background calls

hope this helps

open up you template.html


find

Code: [Select]
<body>

and replace with


Code: [Select]
<body background="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/irimomof3/stripedbg.gif">
for a start....you may have to change other things ;) I had to for the classic theme

Wow, thanks for the fast response.  But I am even more confused.  Do I go into the control panel.  I can't find any of that.  I am sorry, I am so new to this and really trying to understand   ??? :-[

no, not if your using the igames theme as shown below

http://www.beyondpaper.net/gallery/index.php

i'm not using igames, and can't get to the DL section because of maintance, but some theme's backgrounds are or can be controlled via both the template and the css, using a combination of the elements to achieve the goal at hand

download your full igames theme to your local pc, then try the editing the template.html as stated above, if a table has a background color element you would have to remove that too
