    How do I get rid of background image in wordpress?

    Can someone tell me how to remove the background image for our brand new wordpress blog? I thought it would be simple to do, but I can't find the file to modify!

    I even opened the page in Firefox so I could use the CSS => "view style information" tool, but it just leaves me scratching my head. It looks there is an embedded style from http://crawfish.com/blog/, only I have NO IDEA how this is even possible.

    I thought I would be able to modify all CSS rules by going into my custom template, and editing style.css. I don't know how to get to http://crawfish.com/blog/.

    To be clear, I want to remove the kubrickbgwide.jpg image from the page entirely.

    I would really appreciate some help! Thanks.

    Well if you can't find the file, just go to where the image is found and delete it and eventually once you find it then delete it.

    Go into the wp_content folder and from there into the themes folder. Next go into the folder for the theme you are using and from there into the images folder. There you will find all the images for your current theme including the background image that you want to replace.

    It's all about knowing the structure of your file manager and how it works. Stephen gave you a pretty good account of how to get there.

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    I tried Ryan's suggestion of deleting the image itself. That way, there's no way it can show up in my new design. That suggestion did the trick.

    However, because I wasn't only trying to "patch" the problem, I'm still interested in finding out why that CSS rule was there in the first place. So if anyone can explain, I'd be grateful.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Where the image is actually referenced from will depend on how the theme you are using is coded. You might try scanning all of the files within the theme to see which ones reference that image.

    It should have worked. If it didn't cache hijacked your browser .

    Since it is wordpress it got automatically added in their due to the theme, like Stephen said. Just search through all the includes and find which one includes the CSS <style>.
