Here is a scan of my config.toml:
I have placed a large background image in my static folder, which contains an img folder; I link to it here in the config.toml so I can change my site’s background to this image.
“But nothing ever happens, and I wonder”
Cheers for any help!
Where do you reference the background image?
There’s far too less information in your post. But I guess that you should get read of the
/static/ part in your URL. Also, the developer console of your favorite browser will tell you which images your document tries to load.
Thanks! I think the information was sufficient:
- Where the image was
- How I had linked to it in the config.toml.
What else should I provide?
Thanks for your reply!
In the config.toml as you see in the screenshot. I have removed the /static and still it does not load.
A link to your repo would help or at least show us the code from your template/css etc. where you insert the image.
Well yes, you mentioned that. But last time I looked,
backgroundImage was not part of HUGO’s config parameters. So it is probably something your theme uses.
But you didn’t even mention that you’re using a theme, far less which one.
Or maybe you use it in a template, but you didn’t say so either. How can anybody but you know what you’re doing to display the background image? As @frjo said:
Otherwise, only a clairvoyant can help you, and those are quite rare nowadays.
When using the Hello Friend NG theme:
backgroundImage = 'img/foo.jpg'
Please contact the theme author if you have additional questions.
