This tip is inspired by Manuel France's request for a clickable background and has been tested in the Design Studio using the Newspress theme.
Tested in Firefox 18.0.2, Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57 m and IE9.
Have you ever wanted to utilise a page wrap advert like the one Empire Magazine had recently?
You might have a sponsor that wants maximum exposure for a week or two, and tied in with the usual banner ads etc, a page wrap can certainly give them that: click on it and it takes you to their page!
I am going to assume that you can design the background image yourself, although I have attached a PSD file to act as a rough guideline for the Newspress theme - pleased don't criticise me for the crudeness of it, every network is different and will require bespoke images.
First off, the script. Put this in your custom code section, making sure to change the http://www.yoursponsorurl.com.
Now for the css, which you need to put in your Advanced CSS section.
The CSS above requires you to replace the image url with your own sponsor's background.
I don't have a live demo as this tip is really just a response to the previous thread so if anyone gets it up and running then please post the results.
I have also attached the script and css in a txt file.
Warning: You will see the background image on sign up pages, invite pages and some other areas where it might not look so hot. There are no doubt some css tweaks for this but I'll leave that to others :-)
