Change background image or color on an article

Which steps are needed to change the background image or color in your joomla article?
It is easy to handle, but we need to write a little syntax with in the articles.
  1. Create a new article with your custom ore another editor.
  2. You have a "HTML" button, press it :) and insert the following code. Important, you must set the style at the beginning of your article.

<div style="background-color: #d5d5d5">

<div style="background-image: url('/new/images/articles/background.jpg')">

You can see, there is easy to use. But you can control the style over the ccs file of your website.

First, create a new article and insert the following code.

For your background color:

 <div class="newclasscolor"> your content </div>

For your background image:

 <div class="newclassimage"> your content </div>

Now you must open your css file. Your can find it, in your joomla template path. /teplates/css/template.css

Open your css file with a editor of your choice, and insert a new div tag like the syntax bellow.
Take this one to create a colored background

div.newclasscolor{ background-color: #d5d5d5; }

And use this one to change your background with a image what you like.

div.newclassimage{ background-image: url('/new/images/articles/background.jpg'); }
