    Hi it3141,


    In order to do so, you will need to upload your image to your editor > click on it > a small window will pop up, at the bottom of the window you will see two icons. One will be to bring the component forward and the other backwards. You will need to send your image back in order to achieve what you've described above.


    Let us know how it went and if you require further assistance.

    Alon, (wix team),

    you said previous I can place an image behind the page box of each page? How can I do this? Plus if I do this will the image display as a full image always? As if it were a background?

    Hi birch-jonathan ,

    If you are referring to the browser background color then no, it is not possible to set different background for each page.

    You can set only one background for your site.

    Thank you,

    Hi there

    Thanks for the reply.. 

    I have followed your instructions, but the only part of the back ground that will change is the middle of the page ( square area )

    Is it possible to change the entire page colour?

    Hi Jon,

    Yes! Please follow these steps: 

    1. In your page manager on the left, choose the page that you want to change the background for.
    2. Click on "Change Style"
    3. Choose "Special" and click on "Edit Style"
    4. Choose the skin and color for your background
    5. Repeat those steps for every page.

    For more information about backgrounds click here.

    Please note that you can't change the "Site" background for each page. The site background will stay the same on all pages.

    Is it possible to have one of my page backgrounds yellow and then have a different page a different colour. I do not mean just the skin, ( the square section in the middle ) i mean the entire page colour.

    Hi karlanieminen,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the height manually.

    Your pages will adjust their height dynamically according to the content that you add to them. If you add more text or components, your pages will become longer in order to accommodate anything that you add.


    Thank you,
