    Background picture

    Ticket by Steve Galante | March 7, 2014 | Question
    • I'm using a picture as background for my website, and I noticed that at different screen resolutions the picture does not automatically resize, so the relation between it and the other elements of the design inevitably changes. Is this normal ?

      You can change this by going to Design > Background > Upload & Customize background > Uncheck the box 'Scroll background with site'.

      Please note that if you do this, the image may resize according to the length of your page so on one page it will appear smaller than on a different page. I suggest that you try it and see if you like the image this way.

      Hi, the box is already unchecked. I added two printscreens to show you the difference between two screen resolutions. For example, notice the position of the social bar compared to the robot head.

      Here's an updated version with the "scroll background with site" un checked.

      Wix HTML5 websites are optimized to display properly for the most common browsers and devices used today. However, it's important to note that the various browsers and devices use different rendering engines, and therefore may display minor differences in your website.

      Sometimes these minor differences can have a domino effect- for example, a 1% difference in rendering of a font size, can cause a line with only 20 characters to appear 1/5th of a character wider. If your text box doesn't have any extra room for the text, this may cause the last word to wrap to the next line, which will make your text box longer and will 'push' the rest of the components under the page down (By the way, if you experience this issue, it's really easy to solve- you just need to make the text box a little bit wider in your editor to allow for extra space so that the text will still fit, even when it's rendered wider).

      The web standard is still evolving, and it's important to keep up with the newest technologies and standards. That's why Wix is at the forefront of HTML5 website development.
      We are doing our best to minimize the effects caused by the aforementioned factors, while continuing to provide you with the flexibility to create the most amazing website on the web.
      Best regards, Natty - Wix team.
