My sites background is fairly boring and plain white. However, I like my banner that I have and I was wondering if I were to use a differrent background style which has some color would I be able to use the banner image from my other background style?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your message. A lot of the styles we offer have backgrounds that can be changed. You can find out which styles offer this by checking out the Yola Style Gallery.

Here are instructions for changing the background color and for uploading an image for your background.

Edit the page background color:

1. On the main menu, click on "Style" > "Edit Background" > "Change Background".
2. A dialog box will open, click on the down-arrow next to "Background Fill" and the color picker will open.
3. Select the color you would like to use and click on "OK".

Upload your own background image:

1. On the main menu, click on "Style" > "Edit Background" > "Change Background".
2. A dialog box will open, check the box next to "Use a background image" and click on the "Select" button.
3. The File Manager will open where you can either upload the file from your computer or, if it's already uploaded, select it from the File Manager.
4. Once uploaded, customize your settings - whether you would like the image to tile (repeat), where you would like the background to be located on the page and if you would like the background to scroll with the page or not.

Changing the background on your site will not effect the banner image you currently have. Please let me know if you have any further questions in this regard!
