Different backgrounds in each post!

New Visitor? Like what you read? Then please subscribe to my Blog Feed or sign up for Free Email Updates. Thanks for Visiting!

A background put in your blog serves as a sort of branding for your blog. For example if it is a travel blog a background picture of the Eiffel Tower can serve very well. You can also have transparent backgrounds in your blog over which the blog text scrolls.



What if your blog posts are on different topics? Then you can put a different picture as the background for each post.......





SOURCE THE PICTURE


First step is to search for an appropriate picture for your post. Use Google to search for copyright free images.



UPLOAD PICTURE TO FREE HOSTING


Next step is to upload the picture to a free web host and copy down the link. You can use Googlepages or Photobucket.com for this.



PUT CODE IN POST TEMPLATE


1. Login at Blogger.com.

2. Click on Settings link on the Dashboard.

3. Click on the Formatting subtab of the Settings tab.

4. Scroll down in the Formatting tab to the Post Template at the bottom.

5. Paste this code at the top of the box :

<div style="background:url(LINK_OF_PICTURE) no-repeat;">

and paste this code at the bottom of the box :

</div>

6. Save Settings.

7. Click on Posting tab at the top.

8. The Post Editor will open with the code already in it.

9. Replace 'LINK_OF_PICTURE' with actual link of the picture uploaded to your free host. If you do not want the picture to repeat delete the "no-repeat" in the code line.

Type in your post before the </div> tag at the bottom, give it a Title and Publish.


See the example in this post.

Enjoy!!

This didn't work for me. I get this error message:Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tags cannot enclose tags. I used photobucket and took the html code. It was really long. Any ideas?

what did I do wrong?

Kathy Anderson,

Use the Direct Link given by Photobucket.

Hi Vin, I just started yesterday and wondered if this was possible. Those spiders are a bit too realistic for me - ugh - excellent though! It's not as difficult as I thought. Will definitely try it after I solve my current disaster, so thanks a lot. Would buy u a beer except I live in Switzerland right now.

This is the blog i have been searching for.I have many questions about blogger blog and i want all my queries answered.
I want to know is there any software for blogger programming?? how to customize our template??
I mean we do have various thing online through which we get benefit about blogging but some questions never get answered as each person thinks his own and everyone has different mentality.
May be what someone is thing, never covered in any topic on any site.
Hope you are getting my point.
Another question is that i saw a blog on which each post has a unique title and stylish designed.How it is possible to show title post stylish???



Looking forward for your response and bookmarked your blog.
