    CSS background change within a div

    Hello everyone, I'm new here and is a beginner to CSS/jQuery. I'm searching for way to change the background image of a div. When I click on a link on the navigation that will link within the same file (am I making sense?), and with a cross fade transition.

    This is the website I'm working on. The pages are fading in and changes but the background image remain fixed. I want to change the background-image in the blackish background (with words), not the sunrise background.

    I tried implementing this script which I found online but it didn't seem to work. Is it because it conflicts with some codes in my files?

    Thanks in advanced!

    First: change #hdr {..... to .hdr {....
    That moves your background from the ID to the class attribute and it's the class attribute that your changing with the onclick.

    Lastly: change <div id="hdr">Sometext</div> to <div id="hdr" class="hdr">Sometext</div>
    So we have a class to change.

    That should do it.
