In this case, Voy forums makes it easy!.
Go To their General Settings, and this option's listing is URL to Background image.
Yet obviously, most websites and blogs don't offer this simplistic method.
Here's one simple technique for creating a background:
First, choose an Image.
(seamless images are preferred!!, but any Photo can theoretically be used.)
For example: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wbtTjB9m0W8/UX8vYALSghI/AAAAAAAADkU/2X3fLT4YU0s/s320/image.jklpg.jpg
Unfortunately; many websites require users to place this code in the header, above the <body>,
OR, it must be placed far at the website's bottom.
And, for many blogs; this trick doesn't work at all.
(Luckily, Here on this forum; our background code can be placed everywhere).
So, it depends upon the blog.
added features may also be included.
But, this Basic Tutorial will notfocus on them.
But, the example below shows how things could be added...
(although often, the IMAGE URL provides options to re-size the background. such as HERE.
So, various features could be added, sometime in the future. Please Research:
here's an example: (a flimsy example!)
<body background="http://Place_URL_Here" width="500" height="500" alt="background33_top"></body>
while others would choose a different approach
(There's several different ways of writing the same exact code)
the repeat values can be altered in various ways.
W3 Schools has the best listing available:
repeat→ The background image will be repeated both vertically and horizontally.
This is default
repeat-x→ The background image will be repeated only horizontally
repeat-y→ The background image will be repeated only vertically
no-repeat→ The background-image will not be repeated
plus, there are 2 additional variables:
initial → Sets this property to its default value.
inherit→ Inherits this property from its parent element.
also, the background-attachment property can be either Fixed or Scroll.
(notice how the background remains stationary. It doesn't move).
even when you scroll down the page, the background stays-in-place.
Notice how the background moves along, when you scroll down the page.
back during the Internet's earlier days, most websites had scrolling backgrounds.
