I'm having an incredibily hard time adding a background image to the footer of my website. I have followed a few tutorials I've came across but I am using a paided (uncommon) theme and it seems like the tutorials are not applicable to all themes. I was hoping I could put the footer.liquid and footer.css code into a google drive doc and someone could help me that way? Any help is greatly appreciated. The theme is "Reformation" if that makes a difference. Thanks.

Hi @peterg32 

Could you share your store URL and image that you want to add it as background of your footer?

Go to your Online store > Themes > Edit code > open base.css file, add this code at the bottom, and save the file 

#footer { background-img: url('https://community.shopify.com/c/image/serverpage/image-id/379358i382A72C804F79777/image-size/large?v=v2&px=999'); }

Recommend you upload this image to your store admin > Contents > Files copy link and replace it with the current link in my code

You can add this code to your theme.liquid file in Online store > Themes > Edit code before </head> tag 

<style>
#footer { background-img: url('https://community.shopify.com/c/image/serverpage/image-id/379358i382A72C804F79777/image-size/large?v=v2&px=999'); }
</style>

You're the man! That did it, but now there is some odd repeating going on, is there anyway to change that? I rather have it expanded to fit the width... here's an image thank you!Screenshot (227).png
