    Default Site help

    I'm making a new web site for myself, and I'm making a background for it. How large should it be if I want it to be best wiewed in 1024 x 768 screen, Win IE? I know I have to exclude the tool bar, start bar, office bar, etc. So I don't really know how large it should be.

    If you don't want a repeating background, it's best to make it wider than the highest possible res. it might be viewed in and not the res. it's designed for - 2400pixels wide should be okay. As for height, that's up to you, but don't make it too small or it can take forever to render on slow machines, and not too large or it will take longer to download

    Isn't there a way where you can make the background appear only once without repeating?

    I was wondering that too, but I've found out it wasn't possible. Too bad, eh? You'll have to do what crono said.

    Actually, I think there's a CSS value that disbles repeating, I'll look into that Of course, it won't work in some browsers that don't understand CSS

    Like Netscape (well, at least the older versions. It seems that the latest versions do support it. )

    Erh, how do you put an image in the background again? It seems I'm forgetting my HTML

    Hehe. I forgot it as well. I'll look it up.

    <b>Edit:</b>

    Got it. &lt;body background="image.gif"&gt;

    It should be in the body tag.
    <b>image.gif</b> can be anything. (basically anything the &lt;img src&gt; tag can show )

    Here's the CSS value to disable repeating backgrounds, just put it in the BODY's style section

    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    Or try

    background-repeat: repeat-x;

    to tile in the x-direction only - you can also do the same with y

    Nice. Is there also a way to tile it to the whole browser?
    (if you can't scroll through the page, that is, or else it wouldn't be useful )

    I mean, that it fits to the browser automatically.

    Oh, and another question. Is there an easier way to use iframe in Dreamweaver rather than typing the html up yourself?

    iframe wouldn't be too hard. &lt;iframe [add some stuff here]&gt;



    As for Dreamweaver: I don't know. I've never used that.

    Squally: I don't know how to strecth the image to the size of the browser window - what would happen if the user then resized the window afterwards? It's be a pretty weird effect for a web page

    EDIT: Though I think there is a way of making it to the background doesn't scroll at all, even if the window does, something to do with watermarks but I can't remeber



    Vivi: I'm not sure, I suppose it depends on how comfortable you are with typing in the HTML yourself or not

    With css:
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-repeat: no-repeat will make only one

    or

    < BODY BGPROPERTIES="FIXED">

    And then there is Death
