Thread: Tiling

    Default Tiling

    Sliced images tile horizontally, and I desire them to in my site, in either
    a layout region background or even a masterborder background.

    But how does one work around having them tile vertically?

    To clarify, I have a bg image that has horizontal "stripes" to be used as
    the background (header), that would expand/contract to whatever the
    horizontal size of the page is.

    It tiles again though, of course, as you scroll down. Instead of seeing this
    image again, I'd prefer to just have a footer that adjusts to page content
    and likewise expands/contracts horizontally, and not see the bg reoccurence.

    Good grief, that's WAY too wordy.

    Is there a way to not have a background tile vertically?

    Thank you!

    Set your background image and then set it to only repeat in the "y"
    direction in your
    style properties. I believe in v10 you need to do this under Styles and
    the CSS Code tab where

    BODY { background-color : rgb(23,146,171);
    background-image : url( "Images\\whateveryour image is.gif" );
    background-repeat : repeat-Y ;
    background-position : bottom ;
    font-family : etc, etc
    font-size : etc. etc;
    color : etc, etc

    Awesome tOC!!

    I've ALWAYS wondered how to do that!! It actually has to repeat across on
    the x axis, but I got it figured out! That opens up another major step over
    a wall that I thought I was always up against. Thanks again!!!

    I am attempting to do the same thing, but have no idea how.

    I have a background image (3px by 700px) that tiles horizontally.
    I don't want it to tile vertically

    Set your background image and then set it to only repeat in the "y"
    direction in your
    style properties. I believe in v10 you need to do this under Styles and
    the CSS Code tab where
    I don't understand this instruction.
    What is style properties? how do I get to it?

    I have clicked the button that says "Style" and it opens up some stuff about Glasgow and teal and shows me some buttons and stuff that I am not using.

    Can you please help me?

    There are much cleaner ways to do it with CSS, of course, but the brute force method... which will sound a lot worse than it is... would be to open your image in your favorite graphics program and add tons of white space below it. Like 2,000 pixels or more. Sounds crazy but if the image is saved as a GIF, you'll see only a very small increase in filesize.

    there are a couple of places where you can set the background repeat.

    Here is the easiest.

    Go to any page
    From the menu bar select Text > Manage Styles
    scroll down the list on the left of the style properties palette and select the Body (BODY) tag
    Click the Edit button on the Text Format palette
    Click the Background tab (center one)

    You can change all background attributes on that palette (everything from selecting another image to tiling to repeating to scrolling to offset.... the works)

    The "edit" button is only active with the first two items in the list [Site - Text Object and Text Navbar Object]

    The "edit" button is not active for any item in the next, really long group of items, under the heading "Site Style".

    I also notice that everything in the list of items is all related to a Glasgow and teal Site style??
    what is this?

    When I started I created a "new" "blank" site.
    I applied a background page colour.
    then I added the tiling image to the background.
    I adjusted the borders/margins to have one upper horizontal margin.
    I have applied a banner jpeg image to the upper margin.
    And then I let NOF create a set of buttons (that also run horizontal in the upper border)

    heres the temporary site

    You need to make sure the site style is set to read/write not read only. This is done in style view.

    You are best to make a new style based on an existing stock style before making changes.

    See these links for more details:
