subdirectory and backgound images

Author Posts


I have a wp site in a sub-directory like this:

When I use Microthemer to ad a background image it does not work. It adds a path like this: /wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ribbon1a.png

Use absolute background image URL paths


P.S. I’m sorry to hear that you lost time to this issue.
