  • Centerd container outer background image

    Hi there, I'm a beginner at css, and I am wanting to put a background behind my centerd container, but my container image is classed as the background image on my body section in my css code, to view my website click here.

    What I am wanting is an image background to be displayed on the left hand colum and the right hand colum, both ends of the container, if you know what I mean.

    I have tried to put the container settings in a new point: .container and put the container image in there, and I put my image background in the body section, but this became messed up and didnt work out.

    Does anyone know how I could solve this problem?.

    Thanks for any replys and if you dont understand something that I have put I will be happy to re-word it!.

      Hi there, many thanks for replying!.

      Here is a preview of what I want:

      The problem is, is that the centerd-container has a border image, as you can see if you click here.

      I cant think of any other way how to set that background image?.

      Again, many thanks for replying!.

        Set desired background to body and set background-color to white to container..

          Make sure where the container image has the gradient fade that it's transparent, then in the container, the CSS would be:
          html, body {
          height: 100%;
          .container {
           width: 1054px;
          margin: 0 auto;
          background: #fff url(images/site-border.png) repeat-y;
          min-height: 100%;
          height: 100%
          You also don't need to make it that tall as you did (650px). You can make it like 5px or 2px tall, since it's a seamless repeated pattern, that will make it a small sized file.

            Hi there, many thanks for replying!,

            I have tried your code but it was unsuccessful, what I did is I pasted your code into my css file and set the div container in my html file, but the result was the page displaying the whole image background (the background i only wanted to display as outside the container), as you can see if you click here. Do you know why this happened?.
