Repeating background in Builder WordPress

  • SOLVED

I want my background image to repeat x but not y.

I'm using builder theme and the theme appears to be ignoring instructions to just repeat x when I use the builder style manager.

I've gone in and added css a few times and it fixes it for a while but then, a few hours later my settings get overwritten and it repeats y again.

What do I need to do to permanently fix this issue?

two possibilities :
1- go to style.css in your theme folder and replace at line 60
body {
background: #F7F7F7;
}


by
body {
background: #F7F7F7;
background-repeat:repeat-x;
}

That's the solution at 4$

2-you use the "builder theme" and you can choice the "repeat" of your background in the administration, right ? In this case, if you want choice another repeat, the best is to modify the files of the builder.

What do you want to do ?

Hi,

I think you had a cache plugin such as wp super cache or w3 total cache plugin installed.
You need to clear the cache so that your css gets updated.

Put your css in header.php, just after <?php wp_head(); ?> and before </head>
so that it is loaded last and nothing can overwrite it.
Lastly, add !important to css so that it does not get ignored by browser.

example


body{
background-repeat: repeat-x !important;
}


Thanks.

Hi,

Just follow my instruction and your background will be fixed.

Put your css in header.php, just after <?php wp_head(); ?> and before </head>

body{
background-repeat: repeat-x !important;
}


What's stopping you from doing so?

You should at least reply to our answer.

Thanks.

Alternately,

open up your style.css and find body


body {
color: #222222;
font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 75%;
line-height: 1.5;
}


Just added the background repeat to it, like this.


body {
color: #222222;
font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 75%;
line-height: 1.5;
background-repeat:repeat-x !important;
}


Thanks.
