Adding a Background to a page

one year ago

I know there are a few forums on this but nothing seems to help my problem I'm not gonna lie and say I know some basic scripting because I don't. I simply just want to know how I can put a background on one of my pages not gobal or anything complicated and yes I do use advanced mode however despite the tries with the sources and pre-made background script nothing works and I'm kinda really amped to continue on but with knowing I can set a mood with the background.

I already have my pictures loaded and I don't know if I'm suppose you use the scripting option or can I just continue on using just the advanced mode. I don't have any other scripts running nor will I have nearing the future I just want to know how to set a background for one page so I know how to do it for others when I want different backgrounds. Thanks for the help!

$PAGETEXT := "[style]body{background: url('http://chooseyourstory.com/resources/images/user/XXXX');}[/style]" + $PAGETEXT

Put this in the Page Script of the page you want to do this on. Replace XXXX with the number that your image is (if you click the image in my pictures it should popup with a number).

Also replace the square brackets around "style" with < and >.

Just to make it easier if you are copy and pasting this, here is the version with the <>'s. 

$PAGETEXT := "<style>body{background: url('http://chooseyourstory.com/resources/images/user/XXXX');}</style>" + $PAGETEXT

The Help and Info page has a bunch of articles about scripting. It's a good place to start.

Killa_Robot, is there a way to make it so that your image doesn't repeat itself to fill the screen? (Like a quilt.)

Yeah, you just add it as an image on the page and edit its settings to either be in-line or in an absolute position (requires html knowledge). It would only appear once this way though.

Can also try adding this: background-repeat:no-repeat

To the original code (inside the style tags).

I know it's been a while, but this code works really well for no repeating. And it also helps the picture not look stretched.

 

$PAGETEXT := "<style>body{background: url(??????) no-repeat center center fixed; 
  -webkit-background-size: cover;
  -moz-background-size: cover;
  -o-background-size: cover;
  background-size: cover;
}</style>" + $PAGETEXT

This works for every page in the story? Where to you paste it?

If you want it on every page, put it in a global script.

Thanks. If I do that, can I put something else in another page without a conflict?

If you want to switch backgrounds out frequently you can use individual page scripts. If it's mostly the same one with just a few exceptions, you can probably create a variable for the global image and toggle it off when putting in a different one.

Please make sure your backgrounds aren't painful or obnoxious.
