Blog background help please
I found this awesome tutorial tonight from Kevin & Amanda on how to make your own blog background. I followed their steps, and it turned out fabulous. Now, I can't get it to load. I followed their steps on that too, but to no avail. Is anyone out there tech savvy with blogs and changing the backgrounds?
I uploaded my Saved for Web background to my photobucket account, used the links as they said to replace some of the html text but all I get is a blank page.
That is the link to the tutorial. And here is the text I am having the problems with.
Go to your Dashboard > Layout > Edit HTML.
Look in alllll that code for something that looks like this (donít worry, it should be close to the top):
And change it to something that looks like this:
background: url(http://www.photobucket.com/background.jpg) no-repeat center fixed #FFFFFF;
Where http://www.photobucket.com/background.jpg is the direct link to the image.
This is where I run into the problem!
When using the links from photobucket, do you use the direct link or the Img link?
Help please, lol!

oh my Cathy!
i have such issues in changing all this stuff
I am not sure what you use
I know for all the layout stuff/enabling, I use the direct link from photobucket
one thing I found helpful when I tried updating my blog, is to go to a blog you like and then when you right click -- choose "view source"
that will show you how that blog designed things
I would copy and paste that stuff into a word document and use that as my guide in getting mine updated.
i am not sure if this helps muich
but i am thinking of you. i have spent many late nights trying to update the blog.

Thanks Liz. I will try anything at this point. Why can't they make things more simple for those of us who are not all that tech savvy? LOL.

Thanks everyone. Still gotta work on it. Haven't figured out how to add the header and such, but will keep plugging away at it.
Anna---if I figured out how to do a blog, I know YOU can! lol. I mainly just do my CT stuff there. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
