    Getting middle image to expand instead of repeat


    REGISTER TO REMOVE ADS


    Hi all I am trying to get the middle section of my main page to expand with the text that I put in from the admin. It is a background image that is being used for that area. I have added a bottom and a top to it and have lined the top one up but not sure of the bottom one since I cant get the middle section to expand and not repeat. The site is the one in my signature. It is just a test site. Here is the code that I am trying to get to work, The index default is the one that is the middle section that I am trying to get to expand with the text. Is it possible to do this with just editing the css? If you look at the site you will see an angle parchment paper that is put in with ablsolute positioning and is not part of what I am trying to do here.


    Edited: since I am new here I could not post a link to see the work and my signature doesn't seem to be showing yet. I included a text file as an attachment to see the url of the site.

    Code:
    #indexDefault {
     background-image: url(../images/parchmentmid.png) no-repeat 0 0; 
     }
     
    #topscroll {
        background: url("../images/parchmenttop.png") no-repeat scroll -8px 0;
        height: 125px;
        margin-top: -10px;
        }
            
    #bottomescroll {
        background: url(../images/parchmentbtm.png) no-repeat scroll 20px 0;
        height: 155px;
        margin-bottom: 0px;
        }

    Hey I noticed after I posted that I did get a response from you on the introduce yourself section but did not recieve notification. Instead I got a notification of a response to this thread and followed the link to this thread. Just thought you should know

    Edited: Oops: I did get a notification about the introduce yourself thread. Sorry
