Bug re background-image in IE7
If an image file for background image is more than one level deep in the
folder hierarchy, IE7 fails to display it. This CSS line does not work:

background:#485649
url(http://unityportland.org/_Media/banners/LisaAndKids.jpg) top left;

This one does.

background:#485649 url(http://unityportland.org/_Media/LisaAndKids.jpg) top
left;

All that is different is that the image file has been moved up one level in
the directory structure.

This is an egregious bug that ought to be fixed. I'm trying to organize my
image files by type of content--people, buildings, banners, etc.--and
because of this bug, it isn't possible. Beside the fact that I wasted
literally days of work trying to figure out why the image was displaying in
every other browser I tried, including IE6, Firefox, and several Mac
browsers, but not in IE7.

Re: Bug re background-image in IE7
Hi Allen,

And if you disable your ad blocking software which is seeing the "banners"
folder as a possible source of a banner ad? Do you have the IE7Pro Addon
installed?

No problems on my machine. Vista x86 SP1 IE7.

To test try renaming your "banners" folder to "bananas" (or some other name
that may not be confused for a possible ad source, eg. ad, click, adsense).
or run IE7 in no-Addons mode - Start>(All) Programs>Accessories>System
Tools>Internet Explorer (no-Addons).

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head>
<title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body style="background:#485649
url(http://unityportland.org/_Media/banners/LisaAndKids.jpg) top left;">

</body>
</html>

To organize your Photos try a product like Windows Photo Gallery or Google's
Picasa (both are freeware from Live and Google respectively).
You can use Categories and Tags to organize your photos which may be in the
same physical folder so that you don't have to change the links in your
existing web pages. It should save you a lot of time.
download.live.com or picasa.google.com

You should be able to see on your web logs 1 hit from Australia for that
banners folder, very early Sunday Morning (your time), from me when I tested
your code.

Regards.

Your Background image displays fine here in the form of:

<STYLE>
BODY
{
background:#485649
url(http://unityportland.org/_Media/banners/LisaAndKids.jpg) top left;
}
</STYLE>

The image loads in All browsers here including IE7.

Perhaps you have some third party AD bocking software or Anti-Virus software
that is blocking your "banners" folder on your IE7 machine. Either check
for settings in these type programs or rename the "banners" folder.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell
