if it's that what u mean then u can get the background path from your database

make sure that background image has been uploaded into your local folder n

 

<body <?php echo "background='mybackground.jpg'";?>>

In my CSS I have this...which sets the background image for a given "div".

 

#center_big_box.home{

background:url(/images/services.gif) no-repeat bottom left #3a3535;

 

I'd like the background:url(/images/services.gif) no-repeat bottom left #3a3535; to change like this...background:url('<?php $row[image_location]; ?>' ) no-repeat bottom left #3a3535;

 

 

But it's not working.  Like I said, I have that in my css file...which is included like any other css file.  I've even tried setting the background as a <div style=background:url('<?php $row[image_location]; ?>' )> but that didn't work either.  No images show up at all.

I'm going to try to simplify this...and NOT change anything with the css file...and instead try to use a <div style> in the main php page. 

 

If I use the php in the style sheet, wouldn't I be including a file (the css) BEFORE I've set the variable with the mysql result?

leave the CSS alone. CSS files are not meant to by dynamic.  Style is separate from function.

 

If you want the style to change on load, then change the style with JS onload.  you can use PHP inside of JS as normal, and have the JS change the style when needed.
