How To Add A Custom Background For Templates That Do Not Support It

I wanted to share a discovery I had made in the last few days that I'm sure will
help some others out.

I like my kids corner style template and background, but some pages I wish I
could change the background, but this style does not offer the option to make a
custom background image or color and I'm sure there are others that have the
same issue.

I have found a workaround for this with some javascript code.
The background you have on your site will still load first, then the code calls
another background after that like a second layer if you will.

This script will run 4 or more random backgrounds. If you don't want it to
be 4 different ones, just put the same filename in all 4 spots. If it can not
find a picture, the background will be white.

You can find the script on this page of my site, just scroll down.
it is also running on this page so you can see it work.


I hope someone else finds it usefull too!

Interesting tip!

I am happy to tell you that soon all our styles will support custom background images and colors! They will be a lot easier to add, and there will be more control over how your image displays.

We are very excited about this new feature and will be releasing it very soon!
