Can you please give me the information on how to change the background for individual pages. I'm doing something wrong and can't figure it out. I assume the Source data is all messed up since I've tried pasting different backgrounds. Is there a way to clear previous garbage out or doesn't it matter? My Missing Classmates link is the problem. I use this as my practice area.

which background do you want attached to that page? Please attach it here in these forums or upload it to your website and tell what the name of it is on this forum.

I looked at your Missing Classmates page and saw that you had a leading "/http:" before your graphic URL in the background. I deleted the "/" and that fixed that problem.

One thing that concerns me I (but not a whole lot) is that you are using "" as your image. This is fine until that forum topic gets deleted, then your background would stop working. The best solution would be to paste "" in your browser (without the quotes) and then right-click and save it to your hard drive, then upload that image to your Image Vault. Then using the image in the image vault in your background image code.

Also, I guess you know that instead of saying "body", you are saying "body2" in your style. Before the style can take effect, you need to change "body2" to "body", but then that makes it hard to edit the content, so that is probably why you are using "body2" in the style.

So if you wanted to activate the Missing Classmate page, you first need to change "body2" to "body". Then you will see the different background image when you click on Missing Classmates.
