Gradients and images.

Hi all! I have a problem in Sublime text2,when I want to use gradients and images on the same background.I tryed to use hexdecimal colors, keywords, rgb, and hsl values.Nothing seems to work. MY CODE:

background: url(../../Vjezba/zoki.jpg) 0 0 no-repeat, linear-gradient(#72c417, #5c9e19);

I'v tried everything. Is the problem in Sublime text2 or am I doing something wrong.

Looks fine. I would say make sure that your path to your image is correct.

Example: http://codepen.io/drbrounsuga/pen/gPWZRE

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>Background properties</title>
      background: url(http://www.fillmurray.com/200/300) 0 0 no-repeat, linear-gradient(#72c417, #5c9e19);


My image works fine,but when i want to add a gradient over image it doesnt work.So I am just wondering is sublime text2 not working. Thanks for answering!

I'm using Sublime 3. I don't recall there being a way for Sublime 2 to display HTML though. Are you using a plugin? If so, what? How are you viewing the rendered HTML?

Also, If you add my code above to a new html file does it work for you?


It doesnt work in sublime text2.I will try to use it in Sublime text3 and get back.
