Background Image?

Forum Index > Core > Help >

Hi, guys, I'm a wreck but anyway - what are the requirements for using an image for a background in a post? I keep trying but none of the images I'm using seem to be taking - I've tried switching which website they come from, but that seems to have no effect. I'm trying to code for a trade shop and I expect it to take me most of the day, but I didn't expect to get stuck so early.

Well, one thing you'll have to be sure of is that the URL begins with 'https' and not just 'http'. Otherwise, can you share the URLs and code you're using?

ohblessyou Okay, I double-checked and I'm using 'https' URLs. I've tried the below two images: First Second I have two guides open - one using CSS styleclasses and one using just basic stuff, so I've tried the below two methods: [styleclass=base][size=15][b][u]A Place Out of Space and Time[/u][/b][/size][/styleclass] [style].base {background-image: url("https://screenshot.net/nvqkpu4"); color: black; padding: 3%; border: 4px solid #28285a; border-radius: 25px; text-align: center; font-size: 11pt; font-family: "Avant Garde", "Century Gothic";}[/style] [background=IMAGE URL]TEXT[/background]

Ah, I see the issue. You're linking to the webpage, not the image file. You can get the image URL by right clicking and copying the image location. You'll know it's right if it has an image file extension like .png, .jpg, .gif, etc.
ahhhhh kill me, thanks so much! Is it okay if I PM you today while I'm working on this shop? I'll probably run into a couple more problems at some point or have questions I promise not to be too bothersome and I can gift you an albino iggly or chiko for your time :3
