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 the background image is transparent, the default background color will show through. Setting a background in a page/post will take precedence over the one set in
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!
