Setting up my new site and wish to replace the background on the top of the page (under the logo) to an image. Basically change the white to a .jpg file of the ocean. I believe that would go in a .css file (???) but don't know what to change and where?
Your help is appreciated.
Thank you
Bill

catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/stylesheet/stylesheet.css file.

body {
Background: url('put your image url inside here');
}

I am somewhat confused.
First, let me explain what I did. I went to the .css file as instructed. I downloaded it to my desktop. I then opened it in Notepad++ and there is one line of text/code. It is about 3 miles long. So I went to "view" and set Notepad ++ to "word wrap" and now I have one big paragraph.
Within that paragraph is a bunch of references to "background" color. In fact, I did a search for "background" and notepad came up with 60 hits! I do not know which one to change.

It looks to me (and I could be wrong) that these background colors would change the background of the whole webpage. That is NOT what I want to do. I would like my image file to cover the top 2-3 inches of the page (well all the pages actually.) and leave the rest of the page white as it is now.
So, what "background" EXACTLY should I change. I wish this file had line numbers. It would be much easier to read.
Thank you for your time and patience with me.
Bill
