    I have had the same background image for a while now, but today it is gone. It shows as "in use" within the background editor, but do not show up in the editing bay or after publishing the site. What is up now..?

    I have added a background to my site, but I noticed there is a change in the quality of the background on each page. I would like it to look as crisp as it does on the 'Portfolio' or 'Contact' page, as the rest of the pages backgrounds are slightly blurred.

    is there a way to fix this? please help!

      Hi Gill,

      Thank you so much for your quick response.

      The part I don't understand is that it's the exact same image on the background of the website throughout - however the quality differs from page to page? 





      The Second link is what it should look like.. How can I fix this?

      Thanks, Kaitlyn.

      We will appreciate if you could send us a screen shot of the two pages where you see a difference.

    Hi Wix team, 

    I changed the background image on my site to a blue gradient - and I want the default image back.  How can I get it back? The published site still has the default image (it's like a faded sun room) but I am not able to find the default image in your selection of images. 

    Any way to get that image back?


    • Ilia Wix Team

      Replied by Ilia February 25, 2014


      I was unable to locate any sun room background in your "insight site" whether in the live or editor versions.

      Is this the correct site?


      Best regards
