# Post with a Background Image

## October 26, 2013

Here be a sample post with a custom background image. To utilize this “feature” just add the following YAML to a post’s front matter.

This little bit of YAML makes the assumption that your background image asset is in the

 1 /images 
  folder. If you place it somewhere else or are hotlinking from the web, just include the full http(s):// URL. Either way you should have a background image that is tiled.

If you want to set a background image for the entire site just add

 1 background: filename.png 
  to your 1_config.yml  and BOOM — background images on every page!
