Background image splits into 4!

Jan 30, 2013 9:52 AM

Yes, Im a beginner, trying to built my first website in DW6. I have a background image that is sized just as my website size 1024X768. When I insert it in

"Background"in Page Properties, instead of filling the whole page, it splits into 4. I have searched and haven't found any answer of how to solve this

Please help!! It is driving me crazy

Thank You

    When you say background image splits in 4, do you mean it tiles (repeats) to fill the viewport?


    Background images do not normally resize to fill the screen.  If that is the effect you want, see below for example & CSS code.

    Can you show us a link to your page?

    That link points to your computer which no one else has access to.


    Instead of using Page Properties use Css. Insert the snippet of code below into your pages code directly after the closing </head> tag. Go into code view to locate the closing </head> tag. It will be near to the top of the page and make sure you find the one with the leading slash /.


    <style type="text/css">

    body {

    background-image: url(yourBackgroundImageName.jpg);

    background-repeat: no-repeat;




    Replace 'yourBackgroundImageName.jpg' with the name of your image and make sure the image is directly sitting in your site root folder. If it's in a folder named 'images' then add the name of the folder to the url:


    background-image: url(images/yourBackgroundImageName.jpg);
