Background isn't scrolling

My background isn't scrolling.. I have uploaded an image as my background, selected 'No tile', and selected 'Scroll with page'. However, when I scroll on my website the background picture just cuts off at the bottom of the page instead of scrolling alongside with it, thus leaving a big white space instead of the picture background. Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Michael,

Which template are you using in Yola? What type of Yola account do you have - Gold or Silver?

Hello Michael

If you choose "no tile" and "scroll with page" at the same time, your background image will be fixed at the top of the page, and when you scroll, it will eventually disappear the further down you go because the dimensions of your picture are limited while the page size increases when scrolling down. If you want your picture to reappear when scrolling down, you will either need to enable tiling, or you just set it to not scroll with page.

What you could also do and which is a common method of webdesign is to let your background image merge into a background colour. In your Background Editor you can set both a background colour and a picture. The colour will show for the rest of the space if you fix the image by setting "no tile".
