    Changing the background image on a  CS4 Dreamweaver Template

    melanro

      I am setting up a 4-page Web site in which I would like to change the background image on each page. I have made a template and am making each page from it. The reply may simply like to offer instructions on doing this.

       

      I have tried changing it in the editable section, but when I do this, the CSS changes for each page. The next thing I tried was adding a new CSS for each page that would include only the new background image. This is working on Dreamweaver and a preview in Firefox, but when I open it up in the browser, I'm getting part of the site, the background color but not the image.

       

      Here is the page source from the browser:

      <title>Crane Outdoor Contact</title>
      <link href="twoColFixLt.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /><!--[if IE 5]>
      <style type="text/css">
      /* place css box model fixes for IE 5* in this conditional comment */
      .twoColFixLt #sidebar1 { width: 230px; }
      </style>
      <![endif]-->
      <!--[if IE]>
      <style type="text/css">
      /* place css fixes for all versions of IE in this conditional comment */
      .twoColFixLt #sidebar1 { padding-top: 30px; }
      .twoColFixLt #mainContent { zoom: 1; }
      /* the above proprietary zoom property gives IE the hasLayout it needs to avoid several bugs */
      </style>
      <![endif]-->

      <style type="text/css">
      <!--
      body {
           background-color: #2e61b2;
      }
