Hi Guys, background image not working on Explorer but will in Google Chrome? the website is www.ramagewindows.co.uk

Hi Guys, I have designed a website using a snippet of code from codepen. The issue is the background image not working on Explorer but will in Google Chrome? the website is www.ramagewindows.com

Any ideas, i'm really stuck so any advice would be amazing.

In your hero1 class you are calling the image this way: background:url(http://www.ramagewindows.com/img/background.png); - if the image is hosted in the same server as the calling page it would be safer to call it using a relative path, I would suggesting using something like: background-image: url('/img/background.png');

By the way, my IE is pulling up the image just fine.

amazing Pedro, thankyou so much. i think the client just has a slow internet connection and it image file is so large.

again, thank you for taking the time to reply.

Shaun Chrisp I think your hunch about the image size may be correct it took a second to load on my machine as well using Safari.
