It is possible to place text on top of a picture using some special programming code.
However, we very much recommend against doing this. It can be very difficult for your visitors to read text that is on top of a picture.
But, if you want do make it happen, you can follow these steps:
1 - Size the picture to a width of no more than 600.
2 - Load the picture (in this example, the picture is called ‘background1.jpg’). You can read more about loading pictures into Web Builder Express.
3 – Enter the special programming code which loads the picture at its proper width and height and puts the text on top.
When editing a web page, click on the 'HTML' button in the bottom left to see the code:
Next, add this special HTML code:
Be sure to change the appropriate values for:
- height (in this example 431) to the actual values that match your picture
- width (in this example 600) to the actual values that match your picture.
- picture file name reference (in this example /sties/TheVineOfHomePIOM/images/background1.jpg) to match your Web Builder Express site name (replace TheVineOfHopePIOM) and picture (replace background1.jpg)
