You have several things going on, and difficult to test this. I see the following code, and the backgrounds need to be removed. They are overtaking your efforts for body background. Remove the code in bold. Be sure to back up Advanced CSS, first.

.xg_theme #xg {
backgroundurl("*8luJeKT*JN3Ggax3ZjaAq2HtHxuEr9UytATXiQ0/BALONDOMINICANO.jpg?xn_version=201207200051") repeat-x scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    backgroundurl("*8luJeKT*JN3Ggax3ZjaAq2HtHxuEr9UytATXiQ0/BALONDOMINICANO.jpg?xn_version=201207200051") repeat-x scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;


Then, following Fire-Tech's code, add this to your Advanced CSS:
body {

background:#000000 url("*8luJeKT*JN3Ggax3ZjaAq2HtHxuEr9UytATXiQ0/BALONDOMINICANO.jpg") repeat-x fixed!important;
This may not totally get it, but you'll be closer, and I can test this better.
Best Regards,

Your image URL is bad. If you are using the blog method:

  1. Start a new blog
  2. Click on the file icon (not the photo Icon) and upload your image
  3. Make your blog only visible to you
  4. Publish the blog
  5. Click on the file you uploaded within the blog (this will open the picture in a new tab in your browser)
  6. Copy that URL from the new browser tab and put it in the code from before
  7. Add the code to your Advanced CSS

Hope that helps :)

Thank you for your support Fire-Tech.   I did it, but it's the same... I mean, the two soccer balls still are moving down or up :(  

I have tried with

body {
background:#000000 url( dominicano.jpg) no-repeat fixed center top!important;}

But still the same

You can check it at

Thank you for your time

  1. Optimize the picture you want in Photoshop or here.
  2. Upload the image to your file manager (or a blog).
  3. Copy the image URL & replace the "Your Image URL" in the code below with the one from your image.
  4. Add the entire code to your advanced CSS.

/* Background that stays still */
body {background-size:100% 100%; background: url(Your Image URL)fixed center top;

Hi, Jen.... I will like to have a fixed picture in my web, like El Camino Lovers's Page has it ... I mean, when I scroll down the picture in the back stay fixed... How can I do it ?

This always confuses me. I don't think it's possible to control the order of Forum replies. However, you can control whether the replies are threaded or flat, and the order of discussions on the main Forum page. And here's what is really confusing: You can control the order of comments for everything else.

Order of Comments

Forum Control - what's available

Best Regards,

I have a big problem with the way the discussion forum lists comments. i really need to be able to list the latest comment first. Why they have it the other way around makes no sense. Is there anyway to make this happen? Any help would be appreciated.  Barbara

For more e-mail address collection I use pop domination. This launches a nice popup (to what extent a pop-up can be beautiful) when you first open the page.

Hi Jen,  I just finished my background automation that allows 2 different backgrounds per day for different seven days on and I was wondering why the transitions on IE are clean and the transitions on firefox are choppy.  Actually its no big deal but I like how it happens on IE.  When you go to the page click refresh and you should see the image change. I'll give you the code so you can see...hugs Ralphy
