    Fronter background Colour

    Hi, i am a Fronter administrator at a school. I would like to know if its posisble to add background colour to a page rather than having it white. I have tried adding html coding to the source of a text container but it strips the coding out when it goes to the save the page.

    I have seen this done at a MLE conference which i attended at the Emirates Stadium.

    Does anyone have any idea how to add background colour?

    Insert a new text container at the top of the page. Edit the text container and click on the edit source button. Enter the following code with the hex code of the colour you want.

    Code:
    <body bgcolor="#......">
    Save and now the whole page should have the bg colour you set.

    Thanks mate, great help too.

    When using image as a background, how do i set it as 100% rather than having them as tiles?

    isit it because image is too small to fit the whole page?

    thanks

    I looked into bg images but had the same issue. It didn't matter what option i set for the image repeat, Fronter just ignored it.

    css

    You could always upload a css file to the room, but that will of course affect every page in that particular room.

    Where would you upload the CSS file to? Also would it be best creating a whole new css file of "adapting" a pre-existing one?

    You go to Room - Edit properties. Scroll down and you will find the possibility to both download the default css and upload a custom css, i e you can edit the default css and upload it back to your room as a custom css.
