Customize the page background

In addition to customizing the top half of the page (the header area), you can also change the page background. Preferential does come with a default background which you can use, as well it’s a transparent image which means you can change the background colour without losing the background image. Your choicces are:

  • Using the default background
  • Upload and use your own background
  • Use a transparent image with background colour
  • Or just have a background colour without an image

Some people may opt in for a full sized image, or you can use an image and with the WP Background settings, tile it to how you want it.

Transparent Image with Background Colour

  1. Go to Appearance >> Background
  2. You can upload your own or keep the existing transparent image

Image Background
