dolphin background

hi, looking to have a custom background created for dolphin. actually years ago

i had a custom ui built for a mobile app, on looking to adapt it to dolphin now.

 

what is the best background image size for dolphin width and long scroll?

 

file format?

You can make the background length any size you like, but keep in mind a couple of things:

  • It will probably stay the same for a short page such viewing a photo.
  • It has to load each time a person looks at the page, thus slowing page load times down.

Scrolling backgrounds were popular once, but you hardly see them any more.

We all have our views on these things and I hate photo backgrounds. I don't come to a site to look at a photographic background, I come for the content.

Because blocks need a solid background to make text readable, I'm not sure you'll see much of your background photo, especially on a phone.

hey, thanks so much for you thoughts..

i read everything you said and it all make sense, the reason for me wanting a background is to make the site look like it's 100% a part of the mobile app design.

 

i contacted the seller of this module a while back with no response https://www.boonex.com/m/abserve-theme-with-powerful-adminpanel-dolphin7-2  ....

 

do you know if this module has a still background or scroll?

Explain what you need on the background; I may be able to help.  Give as much detail as possible.

hi geek_girl, 

     let me start by saying, i did not mean anything bad on your post where you were looking for a coder. the guys are good only for what they have on the market because they know the value, but on custom work value is really there after work is done.

 

back to me,

      this image is the background of the mobile app but i will like to implement it into the website...

Are you using a custom theme/template?

Let's do it in the base; a custom template might override the base css; if so, then you would add it the custom template.  Go to /templates/base/css  Open up common.css in an editor.  Find at the top of the file:

body {
    width: 100%;
    min-height: 100vh;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
 
    background-image: url(../images/sys-bg-main.png);   
}

 

change sys-g-main.png to the name of your background image.  You may want to set tile as well.  To see how to add tile and other properties visit this page: https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_background-image.asp

 

Upload your background image to /templates/base/images.  Then go to tools and cache and clear the cache and do a force reload of your page.  You may have to clear your browser cache as well although a forced reload should do the trick.

If you are using the evo template or some of the others, then you might need to make your changes in that template; there will be similar files and directories.
