#header background-image, not working


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I just finished a webdesign course for home study.

Now I am working on my first assigment but it's going quite the way I want...

I want to use a background image in my header div.

Here is my code, what am I doing wrong? Can anybody help me please? Thank you!


my CSS:


#header {
background-image: url(header.jpg);
background-size: cover;
background-position: fixed;
text-align: center;
width: 100%;
height: 200px;
top: 100px;
<div id="header">
<div class="nav">
<li><a href="">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="">About</a></li>
<li><a href="">Classes</a></li>
<li><a href="">Contact</a></li>

The first thing you need to do is make sure the image can actually be found by the CSS parser. The url you are using might need a path depending on the location of the image file in relationship to the location of the page file, and the css file.

Thank you for your reply, I was busy with exams so I didn't find the time to look at your reaction.

I checked the path so many times and tried everything and everytime thinking why it's not working now I look again and I see I did it wrong...

Thank you!
