Help with Image as a Background for Portfolio Website

I’m needing help with putting an image as a background on my portfolio website. I’ve tried many different things but nothing seems to help. The last thing I tried made the entire screen gray and took out the task bar. Here’s the link for my codepen page Could anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong and how to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the thing you are missing. Background image is set inside body element in css. I found you didnt have a body elemet. Second thing which i notices in your code was the image url, it was of dropbox. use absolute url of image and not of a website. there are many website which provide images with ,jpg extension but are not the absolute url. Anyway here is the corrected css code.


background-position: center center;

background-repeat: no-repeat; 

background-attachment: fixed;

background-size: cover;


Thanks! I used the code pen and I was able to make it work. But do I need to add content before a scrollbar appears? Also how do I make the navbar run the length of the screen? I’ll try a few more things to fix it but thanks again.

Wow! Thanks! It worked beautifully. I appreciate all your help.
