Designer 2007 background image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I'm trying to set a background image in Sharepoint Designer 2007 but it I can't work out how you make it so that it stretches the image to cover the entire background of the webpage, it always seems to tile the image so that there are loads of the image repeated in the background.

    Thanks for your help

  • Hi Terry Cheaton,

    In SharePoint Designer, The fonts and formatting of each site are controlled by industry-standard cascading style sheets (CSS). For Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 sites, the CSS rules are specified in a file called core.css that is located at http://my_server/_layouts/language ID/styles. (Office SharePoint Server 2007 sites might use a different style sheet.) If you have permission to edit the core.css file, you can modify it to change the font colors, font sizes, paragraph spacing, background images, borders, character spacing, and much more. When you modify core.css, a local copy of core.css is automatically created in your site. The local core.css overrides the server core.css when it is attached to a page or master page. But if you make a mistake and want to go back to the default core.css, it is easy to do by just deleting the copied core.css.
