Background image not repeating as wished.
« on: February 07, 2013, 12:31:20 am »
Hi, first time poster here. Having looked at the showcase websites I get the feeling I´m trying to use a battleship to sink a paper boat. :)
All I needed was something where members of my girlfriends pony riding buisness could have somewhere where they could swap and sell riding gear.

I have a problem with the background image being interupted by various elements. Doesen´t look pretty. Is there a solution?

I would like prefer osclass to appear in the main window of my site rather than in a new window. I haven´t used frames. Is this possible.

Any tips much appreciated. I maybe a "newbie" here but non-virtually I´m an oldie and was never a nerd, geek or computer junky so please use simple terms.

Impressive piece of software and community. :)

Thanks for your time.

I have tried the theme Realestate and Seeker (which visually fits my needs best, plain and simple) but I cant see a way to change the functions of the themes. I need a basic "for sale" format where people can post small ads. Is it possible to change the function?

Osclass CAN open directly. Your domain is NOT "pointed" to the Osclass installation location, likely a folder. You change this through your host provider. Likely there is a control panel (cpanel) you can access for this change.
Not sure what you are refering to there. Osclass does open directly - in a new window. I would like it to open within a page in the main "area".  ( not a window or frame, dont know the term)

But I´ll try out the iframe suggestion.

Thanks for your help

the problem is in your style.css
do not give background image to the first tag (delete the background parameter there...

/* Global reset by Eric Meyer */
html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe,h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code,del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp,small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var,b, u, i, center,dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,fieldset, form, label, legend,table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {margin: 0;padding: 0;border: 0;outline: 0;font-size: 100%;vertical-align: baseline;background:url(http://www.kleinkindreiten.de/Mirror%20pony%20faded.png);}

and modify the next "body" tag here:

/* -- GLOBAL STYLES --------------------------------------- */
body { line-height:1; color:#333; font: 12px Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; }

to:

/* -- GLOBAL STYLES --------------------------------------- */
body { line-height:1; color:#333; font: 12px Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; background:url(http://www.kleinkindreiten.de/Mirror%20pony%20faded.png);}

done.

Thanks jungica. Worked like a charm. And idiot proof described. :) Got a few glitches with scrolling to sort out but on the whole it works.

However....I have a problem with posting. It wont let me highlight a ("required") catagory when filling out a post- which makes posting not possible.

Any ideas on that one, anybody?

(Should this be posted somewhere else?)

@Absturzius


   By default you can only post to subcategories.
 
 If you want to post to parent categories:

 Admin --> Settings --> General --> Category settings and check the box.
