Thread: MLR Background

    Default MLR Background

    I'm trying to set the background in an Accordion Multi-Layout Region.

    If I select the entire MLR, in the properties box there is a tab for setting
    either background color or image. (See attached). However, it seems no
    matter what I do, *nothing* changes. The entire thing remains transparent.

    I CAN select each individual layout region within the MLR, and changing the
    BG does affect that particular region. But I'd like the background position
    (height) to be consistent for each open region. To do this, I would need a
    different image for each region, with the size customized to line up with
    the others. (And this would be different from the overall page background,
    so I can't cheat by using the page or a layout region background to show
    through.)

    Am I overlooking something, or is this just one of those things that doesn't
    work?

    Thanks,

    Ray,

    I'd be interested to see what people have to say about this. Had exactly
    the same issues and have spent hours trying to get the results I wanted.
    Customising the CSS files could be the answer but frankly the labels
    couldn't be more confusing if the were in Arabic!

    I place my MLR in a text box with the background set to white or whatever -
    it gets around that problem.
