How do I put my own image as a background on Tumblr?

Asked by Canarabir (1 points ) June 19th, 2010

I’ve been trying to put my own image as a tile background on my Tumblr. Here’s a link if it helps:

I’m not sure if my theme disallows it or not, but I just wanted to know how. Thanks!

I can help you with this. But you need to add a NSFW to your link. For now I will flag it until you add it.

Find this line when you edit your theme.

body {background-color: #f4f4f4; background-image: url; background-attachment:fixed;}

and make it look like this.

body {background-color: #f4f4f4; background-image:url(‘http://imgur.com/aCCG6.gif’);}

Just change the url to the image you want to use.

Problem is that Fluther changes straight quotes to curly ones. If you copy and pasted it will fail.

Copy and paste from here.

My bad.. I should have mentioned that.

And it looks like you are trying to add a image from a php page instead of the image. That would explain the problem.

I updated the code here.

It looks like this.
