I would like to add an image behind the header which is a slice image which repeats horizontally. I have tried various things in css but it isn't showing.

Can anybody help?

i first added an image slider in javascript hardcoded in your theme page.php.

Now i use the module maxskitter. It works great. you can handle your own slide on every page you like and if no slide added you can set an default image. Several choices of sliders and setting. Love this module.

The only thing i noticed is that it breaks the popup of the image gallery when set the slider. so in the image gallery i just not set an slider and just show the default image.

Hi Lemonie,

There is no difference as to how your HTML and CSS in SilverStripe works compared to static HTML and CSS - besides that you need to add ?flush=1 to the end of your URL, to flush the SS cache (if you have made changes to templates).

Make sure you make your changes in the included files.
