How to Add Page-Specific Backgrounds

Author Pro lets you add a unique background image for every Post and Page on your site. Images added this way will override the background image or texture set via the Customizer.

To add a page-specific background image:

  1. Visit the Posts menu
  2. Locate and click on the Post you want to add a background image to
  3. Scroll down the page until you see the Background Image box below the Featured Image box
  4. Click on the Set background image link
  5. Use the media manager to upload a new image or select an existing image, and click the Select button
  6. Scroll up the page and click the Update button to save your Background Image

Your Post will now display the new background image.
