I have a strange problem which I can't figure out. I recently launched a site using the AgentPress Pro theme, it is here: http://gbrss.org/ and as you can see the background image on the Home page is appearing and is fine. But this site has a few other domain names pointing to it, including http://berkshirewaldorf.org/ If you go to the site using http://berkshirewaldorf.org/ the background image does not appear, it's a white or blank image. Can this be fixed? (Am thinking that to fix it or rather get around this problem, I could make the background image a slide show... but don't have the complete instructions to do that...)http://berkshirewaldorf.org/October 20, 2015 at 3:03 pm #168610
Can you copy the contents of your functions.php file to pastebin? I'm not 100% sure, but it appears that the image is being set in a different method than I'm used to seeing, as I can't find it in the css. If that's the case, I would imagine it's some cross-domain security issue that is blocking the background from being loaded.
I would investigate this further yourself as well, as even with seeing your functions.php, I'm not 100% sure how to fix the issue without further reading.

Hi Porter, I went to pastebin and pasted the functions.php from the site, it's called
functions.php for background image/domain AgentPress Pro
I have not been able to find out anything about why this is happening, but I will continue to investigate and thank you for taking a look.October 20, 2015 at 5:21 pm #168624
Searching that didn't turn up any results, generally you copy / paste the link you're taken to after you paste it - do it again if you'd like me to take a look, otherwise, keep researching that likely issue!

Tried again and here is the link - http://pastebin.com/xVW4CmwROctober 20, 2015 at 5:43 pm #168627
Hmm, I didn't see anything that specifically stood out. Question, how are you setting your image? Are you simply dropping a file like (background.jpg) in the themes/your_theme/images folder, or are you selecting the image from a menu in the theme options?

Are you using a plugin called Background Manager?
If so, it could be choking on your alias and refusing to load properly.
Also, that plugin has been deprecated by its author -- You might consider a different solution.
(Note: If not configured correctly, domain forwards and aliases can cause a lot of problems. Not to mention a possible negative impact on SEO if you're not very careful.)

I do have the Background Manager installed.... or should say I did, I just deactivated it and then under Customize --> Background Image selected one of the images I had sized for that spot and saved and published. (I was using Background Manager like a random image generator so that different images would come up in that spot.) Then went to the site by way of berkshirewaldorf.org and the image appears, so yes the plugin was the problem and Porter you asked was I selecting an image from a menu in the theme options, the Background Manager had replaced that, but without it, that is what I am doing.
Thank you both for helping me think about this and solve this. I do now have another problem and that is to find another solution besides just having one image show up, originally wanted a slideshow there.
Also, detroitwidget, I will look at how domain forwards and aliases are configured, I didn't do that part of the site. I didn't know there were possible negative impacts on SEO... although I have noticed that one of the other domains, maybe I should be saying aliases, shows up as one of the top 5 referrers to the site in Google Analytics. Was just looking at that earlier today and thought what that is funny - it's as if because of several domain names, there is the only word I can think of is dilution (but you see I have to look at this more.)
Thank you, again... if you have any other solutions to the Background Manager plugin, please send along...
