HOW TO USE:

Be sure when you create your blog, use the "Minima" template. If you already have a blog: Click customize, Layout, and then "Pick New Template."

After you've gotten Minima, in Customize, Layout, Page Elements, select "Add a Gadget." Select the "HTML / JAVA" gadget.

ADD this code:

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("BACKGROUND LINK");
background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed; }
</style>

Replace BACKGROUND LINK with the URL listed under the background you want to use. Be sure to be careful that the quotations in the original code are there.

An Example of what it should look like:

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/AbstractBack/RedRetroAbstract3.jpg");
background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed; }
</style>

That's it!

For 3 Column backgrounds, it takes setting up your html to accomodate it. There is a link under "Common Issues" on the sidebar.

Keep in mind, I love the design aspect. I'm not great at html/CSS questions yet, but I'm learning. But if there are any questions, and I don't know the answer, I will try and point you in the right direction. I'm in the process of finding the great blogs with tips and tutorials and adding them to the sidebar. I'm learning as I go :)

I do test out my 2 column and headers to verify they work. I'm going to set up a 3 column test blog to both test, and get a better hands on idea of sizing. So within the month, you might find my earlier submissions being redone lol.

Thanks for your patience, and I really do hope you enjoy my work.
