  2. Hi,

    create a directory 'images' under your child theme's directory, copy the background image to this directory.

    Add to your child theme's style.css:

    #wrapper {
    background : url(images/background.jpg);

    Add any additional parameters as needed.

  3. Hey Chris,

    Thanks so much! It worked!
    However, (I don't want to be too demanding, but just curious..), is there any way that we can let the background stay still, instead of going up and down along with the content when I am scrolling? So that it would not display repeat when there is a long paragraph...

    Thanks again~
