Designing Home Page

I'm happy with what I've created for top pallet, masthead, navigation and footer. Now, I need help with the content areas for my home page.

I would like to fill the background, not just color, but with an image. I also want to place a block of text, that is adjustable in height and width, anywhere within the content areas.

I wish I can include an image of the layout for clarification.

Re: Designing Home Page

Placing an image in the page background is easy. First upload a suitably sized image via the Backlight uploader
Designer > Templates > Uploaded Images

In your page template go to Background

Re: Designing Home Page

You’ll need to better illustrate what you want with text. What do you mean by “adjustable in width and height”?

Re: Designing Home Page

Rod, after I learned how to add background image from you, I had managed to place a block of text in the content area where I wanted.

Thanks.
