Backgound picture not showing

Post by Senior Paper Monitor » Sat Aug 03, 2019 4:24 pm

Much confusion this morning when I tried to preview (and subsequently publish) a new small site with a 'cover' background.

Background didn't show on preview or once loaded to host (certainly in the folder on host).

I assumed I was doing something daft (I haven't touched a new site in months !) so went to look at one that I had done previously and successfully.

Could spot a set-up error so switched background on new site to the one used in the previous and it displayed (in preview and on host) with no problem or changes to set-up other than the picture.

The previous JPG had just been downloaded from a subscription clipart site (with valid account) but assumed that must the the problem, BUT ...

Tried a couple of snaffled JPG of the internet + one I have had for ages (and paid a fortune for as a licensed photo) and they don't work either.

Can anyone suggest anything obvious I should be looking at ?

Usually this means that the filename of the image is invalid.

See this related FAQ:
