How to change Joomla 1.5 Template background

Changing the background color for a joomla 1.5 template:

For example, we take the pwc027_beach free joomla template. To change the background color, will need to edit the template.css file, that can be found in the css directory. Open it in notepad or dreamwaver and find the following code:

body
{
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 0;
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
}

The background color is white (#FFFFFF). Simply change it!

 

Add your own background image to joomla 1.5 template:

Upload your background image to the template images folder via FTP (templates/pwc027_beach/images/), and change the same css code:


body
{
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 0;
    background: #FFFFFF url('../images/background.jpg') no-repeat top center;

}


Insert the right extension for your background image: JPG, JPEG, PNG, GIF !
