Background images?

Hi,

I cannot seem to find the place to change the background image. When we were using the free trial, It was in the customizer view, but now seems to have disappeared with the pro version.
In mean time I uploaded the image I wanted via the media uploader and added it manually to the theme color scheme customizer php file on the server.

What do I have to do to change the background in a more friendly way?

thanks,

Andreja.

  • Hi there,

    Sorry if I was not clear enough. I want to change the background image, not the banner image. On the site that I sent you, it is currently set to this custom image, which was uploaded to the server via the media uploader.
    It appears to be possible to change the background image to a small number of pre-set options in the "Theme Color Schemes Settings" menu, which I can see are hard coded in "functions/customizer/customizer_home_page.php". I have attached a screen shot of the menu I am talking about, and also the line I added to the aforementioned php file. The line I added is after line 120.
    I'd just like to know if there is an easier way of doing all this.

    Many thanks,

    Andreja.

    I also should mention that I copied the background image and it's "thumbnail" to the images/bg-patterns folder on the server itself in order to make it visible on the menu.
  • Hi  Dear 

    Further in next update  we will add more option for changing background image . 

    But till now you can follow the simple steps for changing background image . 

    1 Add  your custom background image into images << bg-patterns folder .

    2 And delete the old  bg-img1.jpg image . 

    3 Then rename your custom image to bg-img1,jpg

    4 Then finally select the first option form , 

    Customizer << Home Page << Theme color scheme setting . 

    And select first option . 

    Hope I made my point clear . 

    Note: The  new custom image extension must be .jpg


    Thanks
