Background-image styling

I am using default zenphoto template altering the dark.css. in the theme folder

Cannot seem to style body or others tags with background img url in style sheet.

Allways stays white . I have checked with firebug but nothing seems out of place.

I can style in-line at tags so I know my paths are correct.
and it looks great but obviously something is interupting the cascade from the style sheet.. this only happens with image backgrounds and not colors.

I would post the url for you guys but I am doing the design locally with Wamp server.

I really like the functionality Zenphoto seems to have and I am looking forward to gaining some experience with it.
any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Do not know what Im overlooking?

    You mean you use the same paths inline as in the dark.css file ?

    If you use relative paths, the inline style would look something like this: `url(images/filename.jpg)`.
    In the stylesheet it would look like this:
  • Sorry I should have clarified that in the original post.
    Yes, I followed the same path protocol as above checked for all the usual stuff spelling brackets etc.. still nothing seems out of place.
    Being very novice with js and php I was wondering if a function was calling some styling at the parent level I was not aware of?
  • Found the solution to the problem with body deceleration.

    Since I was using a 100px x 100px png for the background the repeat deceleration needed to be included as well as the positioning in order to render.

    I assumed that this was by default unless an x or y needed to be declared.

    The repeat declaration added by itself still did not render until the position was added also.

    background:#222 url("../images/bgRepeat.png") repeat 0 0;

    thank you freztl for the reply
