I would like to know the CSS code to add a picture in background without to use the wp editor.
With the very good help of GP, I know now it’s possible to use background-image url(‘http://…..’) but if I put my picture “sun.jpg” in a folder “pictures” inside the first folder theme “generatepress”, what’s the CSS ?
I’ve ever test : background-image url(../pictures/sun.jpg) or url(./pictures/sun.jpg) or url(‘../picture/sun.jpg’) or url(“../picture/sun.jpg”) but no effect.
Of course, thank you very much for your helpGP Premium 1.3.1June 25, 2017 at 12:34 pm #338735LeoStaffCustomer Support
Just want to double check, so you don’t want to use the Background Images add-on in the customizer?
Any reason for that?
Let me know 🙂June 25, 2017 at 2:36 pm #338813Evadex
Thank you for your answer of yesterday (add Simple CSS and the code: background-image: url(‘http://id picture’). With this, I’m happy to use different pictures on different templates.
It’s not possible (or I don’t know how to do) with Background images add-on beacause it’s the same picture for every templates.
I’ve sean a solution to directly import a picture from a folder (inside the generatepress theme folder), with the code : background: url(../Folder/picture.jpg) not background-image: url(‘http://id of picture’)
it would be faster to charge.?.
Unfortunatly, I’ve ever test some solutions (first post) without effect.

You would need to use the full URL to the image instead of the relative URL.
You could use a relative URL if you were adding your CSS into your child theme style.css file, and your images were also in your child theme folder.June 25, 2017 at 6:10 pm #338897Evadex
Thank you for your answer, I’m beginner, it’s an honor to speak with you.
I tested with a parent theme but I can’t ask a picture in the same folder. May be “../” or “./” are not good or I don’t use the good code, certainly you know the good code better than me (background-image or without “-image” per exemple ?).
In addition to this, I don’t know if the child stlyle.css file will charge after the css parent file and I’ll can’t change the font-size or family directly with the theme generatepress .
Per exemple, my primary navigation return to the default parameters.
Finaly, I think to return at the parent theme and use absolute URLs, as your judicious advise.
I let you close this post. Thank you very much for your attention, and sorry for my low English level, in informatic development too 🙂June 25, 2017 at 7:06 pm #338912TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
