Adding a background picture

Yola gives you the option to either change the background color of your style or upload your own background image, or both! You can also apply it to all the pages on your site, or only the ones you select.

Please note: Some styles do not have this option. To find out whether this option is available for a particular style, open up the Style menu and hover your mouse over the style.

Edit the page background color

  1. Click on Style > Edit Background. 
  2. A dialog box will open, click on the down-arrow next to "Background Fill" and the color picker will open.
  3. Select the color you would like to use and click on "OK". If you know the Hex value of the color you would like to use, enter it into the space provided. (For easy reference, here's a link to a Hex color generator).

Upload your own background image

  1. Click on Style > Edit Background.
  2. A dialog box will open, check the box next to "Use a background image".
  3. You can now either "upload" a file from your computer or "browse" for an image file from the File Manager.
  4. Once uploaded, customize your settings - whether you would like the image to tile (repeat), where you would like the background to be located on the page and if you would like the background to scroll with the page or not.

Apply to all pages

You can choose to apply the same background to all of the pages on your site instead of changing the background on each page individually:

  1. Click on Style > Edit Background.
  2. Check off the box next to "Apply to All Pages".
  3. Click on "OK" to apply the changes.
