CSS - Background image - Repeat X, Repeat Y

Discussion in 'CSS' started by bluemanteam, Dec 11, 2007.

  1. #1
    I have a 20x20px background image that I want to repeat to fill the entire screen.

    I have tried using the following:

    background: #000000 url(images/bg.gif) repeat-x repeat-y;

    This does not work, it only repeats on the X axis.

    Could someone please advise what is the correct syntax that I should be using.

    Thank you

    The default value repeats horizontally and vertically. If this still doesn't work, there's something else wrong with your page (or image).

    Thank you, using just repeat without the X or Y worked.

    Because when you stated repeat-x repeat-y, the browser took the first thing it saw and figured you were using them to exclude other repeats (which is what they do). Repeat-x excludes repeat-y etc. So the two were conflicting.

    background: #000000 url(images/bg.gif) top let repeat;

    you may remove the color tag if you wish if you want to display only image on your bg

    Which is a really BAD idea, since the color SHOULD be there for if images are disabled. One of those little accessibility bits people don't seem to think of anymore. Progressive enhancement, graceful degradation, and all that...

    Who cares, she has the looks, brains is just extra. The background would be black anyway, that's really... pessimistic.
    @AimeeJohnson, better take that wet t-shirt off, you'll catch a cold. :p

    Weird, this was in the "popular right now" section.

    I didn't even look at the date!

    There's a reason I have user.css making 100% certain that broken nonsense doesn't even waste time being shown. I actually kill that entire sidebar for being crap I don't give a flying purple fish about. It's a buggy broken wreck (much like Xenforo itself) of developer ineptitude that just seems to randomly show whatever someone browsed from a Google search recently.

    Never thought I'd miss vBull.

    You have a very refreshing way of putting things into perspective.

    It's always a pleasure :D

    How in purple flying fishmongers are "popular threads" anything to go by for finding something to contribute to?
    Go into forums, find the forum you want to participate in, (make sure you're logged in) and click on any thread that has new content since your last visit. Simple. Since about 70% of the forums on this site (or maybe a bit more) is garbage (for me), I don't ever want to see anything from them, regardless of whether the content is "popular" or not. :)

    You're pretty special.

    I bet someone gets a nice tax deduction because of you.

    Right - and you're basing that on what? The fact that I don't put my comments inside rosy little fluffy emoticons?
    The point is this: if you base your browsing the forum, not to mention posting in the forum, on which threads are on the "popular" list on the front page, then you're doing something wrong. The chances of you having an interest in, or actual knowledge of all the different sections that can pop up in the popular section is slim at best, second, the code for the popular section clearly needs improvement, as it pulls up age-old threads more often than not.

    As for the "70%" comment, it's because there is an entire section on the forum for buying and selling, and for scammers and crap-ware salesmen - not something I'm the least bit interested in - hence I open up "Legal issues", "HTML & Website design", "Content Management", "Programming", "Site and Server administration", "Databases" and "Reviews" - the other forums seldom holds anything interesting for me. And on those forums, I only open those that are in bold, green letters - hence have new threads or posts since last time I was by. It's not hard, it's not complicated, it's actually quite simple.

    Something made easier in good browsers if you bookmark the areas you're interested in to a single folder, then "open all in tabs" to quickly pop them all open at once. You can then scan them middle-clicking the new threads you want to look at in the background... something that can be even nicer to navigate if you put tabs where they belong in a column on the side with something like REAL Opera (12/earlier as opposed to the steaming pile that is Chropera), Vivaldi (which is REALLY close to being a viable alternative for me), or using extensions for FF like "tree style tabs" -- more so if you add custom buttons in the corner to "close and go to previous" and "close and go to next" instead of having to hunt for the stupid malfing close button on the tab you are in.

    Good for a laugh, this reply has sat here on my netbook since the beginning of the month. I usually only use the netbook when sitting in the park or at the hospital waiting room, I must have put it to sleep without hitting "submit"...
