So I just began using dreamweaver. I put a background on my site and when i preview, it looks perfect, but when I put it online the background does not show up. What do I do!?!

    There are several background images, so not sure which one you are referring to.

    Taking a quick look through your site, one of your CSS background images is called here:

     

    blockquote {

    margin : 10px 15px;

    padding : 0 0 0 25px;

    color : #2361ba;

    border : #e5f0fb solid 1px;

    background : #f4f8fd url(quote.jpg) no-repeat 8px 6px;

    }

     

    That rule would expect the image guote.jpg to be in the root directory but it is here:

     

    guitarnbeyond.com/images/quote.jpg

     

    If the same applies to other images, then I think that is why they are not showing.

    Oops!

     

    So in the page I can see a header image, a menu image and a footer image and my own assumptions!

     

    The only thing I can think of is to ask whether @guitarboy refreshed the page?

    On my widescreen monitor I see this. The background needs to be centred so it sits behind the content
