I’ve got 2 websites, both set up very similarly as far as the visual design is concerned (content with sidebar on the right). On one of them I’ve added a background image to the content section, and it stretches all the way to the far right hand side, covering the sidebar area too.
I’m trying to reproduce that effect on the other site. I’ve used the same settings as far as I can tell, but this time the background image only covers the area that doesn’t include the sidebar. I’d like it to also reach the far right hand side of the page.
Thanks for looking 🙂

yes, that’s right. There is no image uploaded now, because it didn’t look good. When I apply one with the same settings as the other site (content – no repeat, contain, local), it doesn’t behave in the same way. The image only covers the main content but doesn’t go as far as the right side of the page.January 23, 2020 at 2:11 pm #1141953LeoStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 23, 2020 at 3:03 pm #1142007Ben
Apologies Leo. I’ve added an image in there now (the purple stripe). It’s only 5 pixels high (for the sake of demonstrating the problem), but it’s 1100 pixels wide. I’m hoping to get it to stretch all the way across to the right of the widgets/sidebar.January 23, 2020 at 3:07 pm #1142012LeoStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 23, 2020 at 3:17 pm #1142024Ben
That just made the background image disappear altogether. I can’t see why. However, I think you’re probably onto something – the site where it works nicely is set to one container.January 23, 2020 at 4:02 pm #1142049Ben
I’ve found a solution, but the only way I could do it was with CSS setting a background image for #content. That works whether I’m using one container or separate containers. Still not sure why I can’t do it with the GP settings, but it’s ok – I’ve got the desired result anyway 🙂January 23, 2020 at 4:17 pm #1142055LeoStaffCustomer Support
Using one container with the background image option in the customizer should definitely work.
Happy to take a look if you want to set it to one container (currently I’m still seeing separate containers).
Looks like you have some caching plugin activated so please clear and disable it for now.
