Background image for website

  • Answered
Thanks for response yesterday on how to change background color on my website. Worked like a charm.

Now I need to know the proper way to add an image as my background. I am using an image that I have on my computer. Do I need to upload that image to the img file before I can use it?

Otherwise, how does Prestashop know where to look for the image that I want as the background.


Hello Bruce, Thanks for the question about the PrestaShop background image. In general, most of the interfaces have gone to the point where you can click on a button that lets you browse for the file and then it uploads it. However, even though PrestaShop gives you a "Theme Configurator" in the Themes section, it does not provide a place for a background image. You will have to add the code. You're not the only one to ask this. The PrestaShop forums provided this post that solves that issue. Yes you will need to upload the image to your files. The file should be placed where you saved your Theme files. There is a THEMES folder in the root of your PrestaShop files. You should then see a "default-bootstrap" folder for the theme, then an IMG folder under that for the images. Copy you file into that folder. The path to the image would be something like: I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
