teardrop Hi, I purchased the ebook compiler here mainly for personal use. I write alot of poetry and want to make a coujple of books from them. My problem is (after I finally figured out the basis) lol, is that on some of my pages, the background is left out. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

As no one else has made an attempt to help you with this problem....

I can't be sure, but it sounds to me like the "URL" for the background images of those "blank" web pages might not be pointing to the root directory. With Activ E-Book all of your web pages and their additional content must be contained in the "Source" folder of your Project. That means all of the background image files must reside in the same "Source" folder as your HTML web pages.

It is not enough that all images are stored in the "Source" folder -- their "URL" address must also be set to the root folder (i.e. the "Source" folder).

If background images are properly placed in the Activ E-Book "Source" folder, the background image URL should only contain the image name. For example --
In the "body" use background-image: url("mybackground.gif" ;
or for CSS it might be background: url("mybackground.gif";

I hope this clears up your problem

teardrop Hi Ron,
 You were right! For some reason when saving my files from word to html some of my files aren't saving the image url. A lot of my files do but a few just won't. Thank you for your feedback. I know now that it has nothing to do with my compiler but with my own files.
