This is probably very simple, I just haven’t coded in a while and forgot some fundamentals. Is there a way to have the background image repeating the entire width of a monitor, while having the content section maintain liquid height?
You mean like repeat-x?
Yes but the content section is simply #FFF throughout, and if the content section is longer than the BG image it will have undesirable effects on the design; IE the footer would look messed up.
Isn’t the content ‘wraped’ in the BG div? ie the content div should be inside the BG div.
Or you could just apply the BG to the body or html tag.
I want this template to be flexible, so if they end up putting more content in this section than it was made for, it will not hurt the design.
If I simply use a 1xHeight image for the BG it would not work right if they add more content.
You want the background, an image, to scale height wise?
Persay, yes, but it doesn’t have to be one image if the solution requires more.
Could you post an example of what you want to repeat?
Look at the image above, the actual design itself is irrelevant… The header is a design, and the footer is a design. I want both of these to repeat-x for the width of the page, but they are going to need to be separate images. Would using 2 background images (not sure how, but know you can) do what I need? I’m really getting the feeling this is something simple.
You can have two background images if you have two nested divs, but I have a suspision that you don’t need that.
Are you sure you can’t jsut split the ‘special’ portion of the image from the solid color and use a background color.
PS: I am having troubles understanding whats your trying to say. An image of the actual problem image would help greatly.
