Solved Changing Background picture Fail

Post by ryz on June 7th 2013, 7:55 am

Hi, so I've tried to change my background now a few times and it still won't work after i've submitted it. I've changed the background picture and i can see it been changed in the "Pics management" section in the admin panel, but when i go preview my portal there is no change to the background to the one i've submitted. Please help!

Could you provide a link?

But just a suggestion... maybe just wait a bit. I find that sometimes some pictures take a little longer to load than others. If its showing in the admin panel when you put it in, then it should show up...

Try clearing your browser's cache and then load the page again Wink

That's what i thought but after a day or two i still can see it in admin panel but still the background havn't changed, the picture is in good size so i cannot see that being the issue.

^Try that. Otherwise I can't really think of any reason it shouldn't work... If you still have a problem though I may have one more suggestion...

Could you provide a link to the forum so I may see for myself though?

Cleared cache and reloaded the page multiple times, still no update of the background. And sorry fray but I'm afraid at this moment do not want to share/put the website out there. There cannot really be any problem on my end as i see it currently, must be on forumotion's end.

It could be that it is added by CSS. Take a look at your CSS stylesheet.

^That was my next suggestion and really the last thing I can think of. You find the CSS by going to;

Display-> Pictures and Colors-> Colors

And then there should be two tabs. Colors and CSS. Go to the CSS one and find the block like this...

Code:
background-image: url('http://garciam44.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/grey-repeating-background-5dark2.png')!important;

Though obviously put your own image url in... If it doesn't work then... well then I've got nothing left.

Found and changed the background successfully thrue the css now. Thank you. Don't know if it was only on my end but some technician should probably take an oversight of the problem to change it the easy way under the pics management, to work properly.
