Great template. I am wondering, though, how to get the main background image to stretch to the full screen resolution. Nothing I've tried so far works. I would like to use an image which doesn't tile, and hence no repeat, but I can't get an image which is smaller than my screen to fill the screen. Is this possible?

Hello,

You would have to set a custom background under the Backgrounds tab in Vertex. Under that same tab you can set the background size to 100% or cover.

Hi Mike,

I am still unable to get the "Main Body Background Settings" background to stretch to the full screen resolution.

"Set your own custom Background" = Yes
"Background image repeat option" = no-repeat
"Background image position option" = top center
"Background image size option" =

[The options are: none/100% auto/auto 100%/100% 100%/auto auto/contain/cover/custom]
It doesn't matter what option I pick, the image will not expand beyond its native resolution.
I am using IE11 and Firefox 33.0.2

Interestingly, the image position option also never changes; it always renders the image anchored in the top-left corner regardless of any option I select.

"Background image attachment option" = fixed

Any pointers appreciated.

Hello,

Your background-size call is omitted. You can force it by adding the following to custom.css:

body {
background-size:cover !important;
}
