Thanks Mercime, that was actually it. I had the url wrong…and, I didn’t realize I need an images folder in the child theme as well. I changed the url to background-image: url(‘images/background-rope-header.png’); and added an images folder to the child theme and it adds the backgrounds like it should.
Thanks so much for replying, Ive been trying to figure this out for a 2 hrs.
I first added it inside the header div just before the closing for header–inside the header.php. this showed no background image that I added in the css.
So I then moved the div#ropeheader to just below/after: php do_action( ‘bp_before_container’ )
Still no background image. The width and height I specify in css or a color will show up fine but no background image.
I don’t think thats the case here because every single table in my database says pressfix in front of the name.
Buddypress crashed my site so I had to delete the folders from my wordpress folder manually. I am only on a localhost MAMP environment not live with it. I installed budypress it crashed my admin and site so I went into the folder where buddy press folder was located and deleted it. No the site works and admin panel dashboard works great but my database tables appear to be buddy press tables.
