View Full Version : Web page background, help needed!

05-20-2012, 12:40 PM
Hi all,

I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to webdesign but I tend to learn as I go and have taught myself linux and windows programming so far. I have also managed to develop three fully customised websites which look pretty good I think and so do the people I did them for so I am managing.

I am actually working on a win7 pc, please don't hate me, I have tried various emulators and browsers but have been unable to recreate the problem one of my friends is complaining about and that is the background scaling down on his webpage when viewed through his ipod.

I found this website advice among others:

Background Image Shrinking on iPad | Drew5.NET (http://drew5.net/2011/07/13/background-image-shrinking-on-ipad/)

and checked and was surprised to find the code is already present in my css.

So my question is why does my background not render full screen on iOS products and can someone take me through the solution in baby steps please?

Many thanks in advance,
