CSS CSS Foundations Backgrounds and Borders Background Properties

Code not working in this CSS lesson

The fixed, scroll and local all do the same thing. The background never stays fixed. I even tried the "final" file that is provided. I have latest version of chrome running on Mavericks

Hi Jared,

Does your CSS look similar to this?

html {
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    background:url('IMAGENAME.jpg') center center no-repeat fixed;
    -webkit-background-size:cover;
    -moz-background-size:cover;
    background-size:cover;
}

If not, I would try it out and see what you get. Just replace IMAGENAME.jpg with your image path. Let me know if this works out for you!
