Post with a Background Image

October 27, 2013

Reading time ~1 minute

Here be a sample post with a custom background image. To utilize this "feature" just add the following YAML to a post's front matter.

image:
  background: filename.png

This little bit of YAML makes the assumption that your background image asset is in the /images folder. If you place it somewhere else or are hotlinking from the web, just include the full http(s):// URL. Either way you should have a background image that is tiled.

If you want to set a background image for the entire site just add background: filename.png to your _config.yml and BOOM --- background images on every page!
