    Hello SkyGuy5,

    Thanks for the input, i've followed your instructions closely & created a folder called Images in the main widget folder and inside add the wallpaper and name it BG.png. But the problem still exists. Screenshots from left to right show the directory structure, current springboard (wallpaper twice as big), ideal springboard (wallpaper displayed correctly)


    I've attached my Wallpaper.html file (changed extension to .txt). If you can kindly take a look & see where it all went wrong, it'll be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
    try this



    body {

    background-color: none;

    margin: 0;

    padding: 5px 0 0 0;

    height: 960px;

    width: 640px;

    background: url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.jpg') no-repeat;

    background-size: 322px 482px;

    background-repeat:no-repeat;





    }

    what is this ?

    background: url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground1.jpg') no-repeat;

    try this

    background: url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.jpg') no-repeat;
    Hi chg128, thanks for the reply. I added the "1" on purpose so that the widget doesn't grab the wallpaper from my phone's wallpaper library. I prefer placing the wallpaper to be used with the widget within the widget folder itself. Like this, every widget tt i used gets a dedicated wallpaper & i don't have to remember to set different wallpapers for different widgets. Hope this helps to clarify my intention here.

    Hence my query above which SkyGuy5 has been kind enough to help out. But apparently i'm really a html idiot & can't get it to work so i'm posting my Wallpaper.html file (renamed as Wallpaper.txt) for the bros here to take a look where it all went wrong.

    Trust me, it's way more flexible in this manner for future portability when we're thinking of using this widget in PerPageHTML, or when we upgrade our ios in which case backboard will not be able to remember our theme setups even if we have backed everything up & putting them back in the phone (someone already confirmed this with wyndwarrior).

    I know exactly what you mean. Started saying please hit the thanks in my downloads. Maybe that enticed people to do so but yeah, it gets annoying when you answer something and the person you helped didn't hit thanks or worse, doesn't even post again.
    Most times I'm hitting thanks it's from safari on my phone. I'm sure you know how fun that is when you hit 7 of em on one page. That's 7 refreshes too....oh the joy. But yeah, like Coop said, etiquette thread would be nice. Sht I even hit thanks on posts I don't use or download ect but do it because I appreciate that someone did the work and took the time for others.

    If this post helped you in any way, please hit the thanks button...
    All I can say is I totally agree it is becoming the norm which is a bad trend. The worst and I am sure for guys like SKy Derrick Lao Waverly Hurst Coop and so on it's worse than for me but the PM's and the incredible sense of now now now is unreal. It's always from people that just joined and somehow feel like it's our job to serve them lol Don't get me wrong it's not all like that but it's been worse as of late.....

    Firstly I want to thank all the folks on modmyi. It is truly my favorite and most checked site and forum about iphones. It is thanks to all you who do help everyone that I have been able to learn as much as I have about the iphone. I wish I could say I was as good of a contributor as many others on the forum, but considering I have never had any education in PS and/or HTML,CSS etc. I am proud of what I have learned from all the assistance in the forum.

    Just wanted to share with all of you that what you provide is appreciated and necessary to keep the likes of MMI going. I look forward to learning more from everyone here and at some point being able to supply answers myself.

    Thanks to all who contribute to ModMyi and the iPhone community.
