[Pro] Double backgrounds

Hi all,

Love the forum here, I’ve been reading for about two weeks as I work my way through my first freeway page. First post so be kind. I’ve seen this question answered here

but the link doesn’t work anymore.

I Like the extra background action and how I can use it in the templates and tutorials but I’m wondering how I can add it into my own page.

However, I might be approaching this problem incorrectly and I’m open to other methods! I’ve got a blog-style page going. I’d like to have a standard background that will adjust with the browser like the normal background function works, but I’d also like another background centred, with a fixed width that will tile vertically as I add new blog posts.

Currently, my workaround goes like this. Use my background image that adjusts with the browser in the “background” menu. Then create a graphic box the entire width of my page (1024px) that I can make bigger as I add more posts. This achieves the result I want but the graphic box can’t tile vertically.

As to your approach, only browser backgrounds tile. To get the effect of an extended center page section that appears to grow you can use a graphic element only at the top of your page that is a gradient, while a solid color from the middle on down to the bottom of an html box would have a solid color applied that the gradient ends at. Or, you could make a background image for the center section that is much taller than your actual content will ever be.

Thanks so much chuckamuck. I can’t believe I missed it.

It’s definitely a good idea and probably what I’ll end up doing. I’ve been playing with gradients but it’s not the effect I want.

Hi
My name is Martin Bullivant-I just got an email copied to me from you
to someone needing help with framing a page-not sure why… Actually
its very helpful and I’m pleased you did, but did you mean to include
me (or have I inadvertently subscribed to all e-mails on the Freeway
forum… that could be heavy traffic!.
Thanks anyway.

Hi Martin
If you subscribe via email you get all postings to the list as emails.
I set up a rule in my email program and its pretty easy to skim and select
relevant mails - but you can always revert to web only access if that suits
you better.
hope this helps

regards
Brian
