Help needed !

Hi there......I took over my network just over a year ago and had no involvement with the set up of it........now I seem to have a problem with the centre background .....for some reason it appears to have lost some width in the middle (pls take a look at my site to see what i mean) and is just unsightly especially on the home page.

I asked Ning Support for help but was told they couldn't assist me with Custom Code.

Here's link to my Network http://theartcolony.ning.com/

If possible could someone please help me with this......I do appreciate any help offered as I am not that computer savvy.......Thank you.....Jane..xx

  • Hello Jane

    Just edit the numbers in this code and add it to your design studio CSS section

    HTML body { background-size:1750px auto!important; }

    • Hi George......sorry to seem completely thick .....but I have no idea on how to do this.....there are 2 body lines.....shown below

      body {
      background:@ning-body-background-color @ning-body-background-image no-repeat fixed center top!important;
      }

      body{ -webkit-background-size: 1650px 1250px;}

      Not sure which one I am editing......lol

      I don't see one that has auto!important init.

      • Replace the one in your design studio CSS section with the one I gave you.  

        This is the code to replace.
        body{ -webkit-background-size: 1650px 1250px;}

        The code you're using has -webkit- in it so it will only target certain browsers like Google Chrome, Safari and now Firefox - it won't work for Internet Explorer and any other browser that doesn't use -webkit-...

        Replace the one in your design studio with this one so it will target all browsers.

        HTML body { background-size:1750px auto!important; }

        • Omg........Thank you ......Thank you so very much........wow....it worked .....so pleased.......Awesome!

          Thank you George.........really do appreciate your help...........xx

          • Your welcome Jane. :)

            By the way, sens your replacing the code  you can use a less aggressive version of the code.. like this one...

            body { background-size:1750px auto; }

  • Ok ...complete novice here...lol..........CSS scares me.......but will try.......just scared I'm going to mess it all up.......hehe
