    For URL,
    for the world of me, I can’t find where the background image is and how it is being referenced.

    Sharp eyes? Anyone?



    Tip: The developer toolbar will help you – F12 in most browsers.

    You can use it to inspect elements and locate the CSS properties (and images) that have been applied to them. It will also tell you which stylesheet has the relevant CSS inside, what it’s called and where it’s located. You can also modify styles live in the browser then transfer them to the stylesheet once you’re happy.

    In this case, head for the stylesheet for your Business Casual template and look at the top. Stylesheets are normally structured in a logical way and main background images tend to come near the beginning.


    Beverley, yeah, I did, and I also did search with key word of background-image against the bootscrap css file as well to no avail. Got sharp eyes? Thanks.


    I’m assuming you mean the brick wall?

    It’s on the body right at the top of business-casual.css

    body {
        font-family: "Open Sans","Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
        background: url(../img/bg.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;
        -webkit-background-size: cover;
        -moz-background-size: cover;
        background-size: cover;
        -o-background-size: cover;

    Not sure how to interpret whether you’ve found the background image (the bricks and coffee cup) or not, but it’s the only background-image in the business-casual template CSS. It will not be found using “background-image” though because of CSS shorthand. A safer bet would be to search on “url” when looking for a background-image. It’s right at the top though like I said.


    Paulie_D, thank you!
