I have a background image set in the theme options, but it is not showing correctly on any third level pages.  For example: is displaying correctly.  However is not displaying the background in either header or footer.  Would you have any ideas for fixing this please?

Also, the site is running very slowly .  I have been unable to get JS compression to switch on without error messages - any ideas for speeding up the page loading?

Many thanks

From looking at it with Firebug, it looks like you forgot to add a leading slash to the path in the settings. 

You have "images/image.ext", but you need "/images/image.ext".  By not having that leading slash, the browser assumes the URL is relative to the URL of whatever page you're on, so on the "/sports-nutrition/" sub-page, it thinks you're trying to load the image from "/sports-nutrition/images/image.ext", which doesn't exist.
