Change background color

Hello, it seems that :

3. Custom Background

Sparkling theme supports WordPress Custom Backgrounds feature.

In WordPress dashboard go to Appearance -> Background.
You can either set the image or solid color as background.
You can see the background preview on the same setting page.
Click Save Changes when you are satisfied with what you see.
You can always reset theme default background.

does not work as there is not such an option in wordpress or at least on my installation.
So how to change the background color of the site or put an image instead?


Hey there,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

Simply change the URL of the image

/*Background image*/
body { 
  background: url( no-repeat center center fixed; 
  -webkit-background-size: cover;
  -moz-background-size: cover;
  -o-background-size: cover;
  background-size: cover;

Best regards,
