View Full Version : Resolved Trouble positioning background of image slider

Jan 19th, 2010, 05:07 PM
Hi all,

Iv personalised an image slider and would like to add a mac image as the background positioning each slide in the monitor of the mac, my problem is though that for come reason I just cant get the monitor background to display at all never mind position it, I dunno if its just been a long day and Im being silly or if Im just doin somethin wrong, Iv tried wrapping a div around the slider and adding the background that way, Iv also added the background to the #slider id but no joy, could someone give me some advice please?

Thanks in advance!

Hello kylle,
There doesn't appear to be any image at http://www.kylehouston.com/new/images/mac.png

Hi Ex,

Iv added the mac as an image as sometimes the host i use doesnt allow you to view the image using the path, its a free host.

I hope this can help

Thanks for looking

Try something like this. I didn't have the js, or the image because that is just a weird thing your free host is doing, so I just guessed at the placement but you'll be able to see how it's done -
