Right now the frontpage articles have a white background.  I want to put a simple gradient (like s5_h3_bg.png or bigger) background on the articles just on the frontpage, but it doesn't matter if it shows when they click on the link.  After much search in this site:

I put this on the bottom of template.css

table.contentpaneopen {
background:#FFFFFF url(../images/s5_h3_bg.png) repeat-x;

But the gradient appears at the title of the article and again at the intro of the article.

Is there a way to have the gradient encompass the whole article for each of the frontpage articles? (what I want)  or just the width of the top area for each of the frontpage articles?

Hello, there's not a way to do it on just the frontpage, it would be on all pages. However, the code you posted would effect both the title and the article because Joomla uses the same classnames for both, so there's not a way to just put it on the article itself.
