Customize your page background

When we say “page background“, we are referring to the overall page, not the content area. For example, here is a screenshot where the page background is using a photo and the page width is using a boxed setting of 1600px.

I’m not sure if you can see the scanlines (lined graphic) on the background part due to the very suttle and dark graphic, but here is a closer look at the default background this theme has:

Depending on the boxed size you are using, or length of page content, your page background may not show. For example, if your boxed size is full width, then only short pages will show part of the background, but if your page content is very long, then you won’t see the background.

Image Background

  1. Go to Appearance >> Background

If you do not want a photo or graphic background, you can opt in for a solid background colour instead.
