Post: A question about background images....
Posted by Tallytchr on 7/19/06
My webpage is published with a composer in Netscape (Using
Netscape or Mozilla Composer..is what the tutorial says).
Everything works great EXCEPT I can't get my backgrounds to
My homepage has a background because a computer techie
person at the university did something on the server to
make it work!
But now...I'd like to add some more...and that techie
person no longer works there and I'm on my own!
Here's what the tutorial said:
BACKGROUND IMAGES - To add a background image to your Web
1. First, make sure that your background image is
located inside the same directory as your web site pages!
If you inadvertently link to a background image on you hard
drive, it will not go with the Web site when it is
transferred to the server, and will not show up once
2. Choose Format, Page Colors and Properties from
Composer's main menu and click the Colors and Background
3. Type the path and filename to the background image in
Use Image or click Choose File to browse your computer.
WARNING:If you use the Choose file option, make sure that
the file that you are linking to is enclosed within the
SAME directory that your Web page is located. DO NOT LINK
TO A FILE ON YOUR HARD DRIVE!!
4. Click OK to save changes.
My question? How do I get the file to link directly to the
server...When I add an image...it sticks...but when I do
the same thing for the backgrounds...it doesn't!
Here's my webpage link...if the source pages are any help
to answering my frustration with this one part of the web
