If you have been thinking about how to add a scrolling background image to your Ning network, but have not been sure how to do it, you're in luck! This example uses just CSS and a single image. Other similar solutions require javascript to work, but not this one!  Place the following code into your Advanced CSS box and smile!

Scrolling Background Images On Your Ning Network.  Example:

You'll want to replace my 'surveyors.jpg' image with your own.

Add this to CSS:


body {
height:100%;
background-attachment:fixed;
padding:0px;
margin:0px;
background-image: url('https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/11390612?profile=original');
/*Change this url to your panorama image*/
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-position:0%;
background-size:auto;
animation-name:backgroundanimation;
animation-duration:50s;
animation-timing-function:linear;
animation-delay:0s;
animation-iteration-count:infinite;
animation-direction:alternate;
animation-play-state:running;
/* Firefox: */
-moz-animation-name:backgroundanimation;
-moz-animation-duration:50s;
-moz-animation-timing-function:linear;
-moz-animation-delay:0s;
-moz-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-moz-animation-direction:alternate;
-moz-animation-play-state:running;
/* Safari and Chrome: */
-webkit-animation-name:backgroundanimation;
-webkit-animation-duration:50s;
-webkit-animation-timing-function:linear;
-webkit-animation-delay:0s;
-webkit-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-webkit-animation-direction:alternate;
-webkit-animation-play-state:running;
/* Opera: */
-o-animation-name:backgroundanimation;
-o-animation-duration:50s;
-o-animation-timing-function:linear;
-o-animation-delay:0s;
-o-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-o-animation-direction:alternate;
-o-animation-play-state:running;
}
@keyframes backgroundanimation {
from {background-position:0%;}
to {background-position:100%}
}

@-moz-keyframes backgroundanimation {
from {background-position:0%;}
to {background-position:100%}
}

@-webkit-keyframes backgroundanimation {
from {background-position:0%;}
to {background-position:100%}
}

@-o-keyframes backgroundanimation {
from {background-position:0%;}
to {background-position:100%}
}
