    Placing mutiple background images

    http://forums.wildfiregames.com/intranet/wfg_main/2/

    As you see, I am trying to build a "gate" around the center coloumn with curves and some gradient borders to separate main col from navbars.

    Now I need mutliple background images for the main coloumn, which I have problems with. I have made an extra div id #contentHelp inside the #content (= main coloumn) and set its background picture to work for the right gradient border.

    It dies not display correctly as you see.

    Anyone able to help ? How'd I do this with horiz. background images for the top and bottom of the main coloumn ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Hi Tim,

    The trouble with this is that you are working against yourself in some ways.

    You need to clear all the content padding and margins out of the way first and then construct the layout as the bg images will probably require a few more nested divs to accomodate the images.

    Once you get the background sorted it will be easier to place your content back in the middle. There is no easy way to do this but try to use existing divs for the bg images where possible to avoid having multiple nested divs.

    BTW (I'll be looking at your other page shortly once i've finished here).
