[Pro] Background Image: cover

In FWP 7.1 for a background image you can use now “cover”. Works great!
When you uncheck “background scrolls” it works ok on the desktop but not in iOS.
In iOS the background still scrolls, is fixed and stretched to the full page-height.
What went wrong?

As far as I understand it iOS Safari doesn’t fully support background-attachment:fixed especially when applied to the Body and in conjunction with size:cover

Not at my DT machine to explore in detail though.

Yep, fixed backgrounds aren’t support in iOS (on any element. It’s all to do with how the system handles scrolling web pages. When you scroll what you’re actually seeing is a graphical representation of the page, not the page itself. This is done to cut down on computation which in turn results in better battery performance.

btw:

without any background, the page-project looks much better.

@Thomas: I agree, but in this case: " He who pays the piper calls the tune. "

I’d like to seriously double the :“NEVER”!

You’re hired for being the designer. The client doesn’t know how to be a good client - and if you don’t tell em, they start doing your job. Teach them being a good client and they’re convinced you are the best choice they made.

They pay your fee, that’s true - but they expect the best result possible as well:

Here we are talking about a redundant, non-semantic element which is 160kb in weight. I’d call this heavy-weight (even a hero-images can be smaller). So client fails and you accept it?
