My blog will be only one post per page. What I didn't think about when I designed it was that if someone is viewing a post and there are multiple comments, my background image (in the body css tag) ends and all the comments just sit on a brown background color. Ugly! (Ignore other ugliness - I'm still working many, many kinks out of my first WordPress theme!)
So...what's the best way to add at least some "paper" as the page gets longer and longer? I'd love to put a "cap" on the end of whenever the comments end, but that seems like a lot to ask of my limited WordPress and php abilities (I'm pretty good with HTML and CSS), but at least a repeated paper background with brown right/left edges that ends when the page ends would be better than what's happening now.
I tried adding a repeating background image to the footer and the siteinfo css tags, but that doesn't seem to be working, so I'm hoping someone can help me out. Thanks!
