    Note: the plugin doesn’t restrict to full-size backgrounds. It is configurable to allow any type of tiling or repeating as well. If you have thoughts on other ways this can be extended, please let me know!

    Hello, can you tell me if this plugin will maintain the integrity of my existing theme. I am looking to add this plugin just to change the background of my website.

      Ghost1227 says:

      It doesn’t do ANYTHING unless there’s an active CityScape for the current location, in which case all it does is override the background image for the defined element.

      How/Where do I install this? Is this a plugin or a new theme?

    • Verified Tailor
      Ghost1227 says:

      It’s a plugin. Included with each of my plugins is full documentation which should explain the installation and setup process. If you have issues, please feel free to let me know!

    This is not working. I get an error when I activate it. Any ideas? I’m running version Geotheme 3.1.0 & CityScapes-1.4

      If anyone is still getting this, you need to update. The latest version should not have this issue (or the function that causes it).

      I’m getting this error as well. Did work fine before, then today when I tried to login to my wp-admin I get the error. Tried to download the plugin and upload again but still the same.

      Seems there is a problem with the url
      It says:

      The page you are looking for doesn’t seem to exist.

      Need to fix this asap. jamieedwards did you solve the problem, if yes how?

    Image is not displaying on my site at Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

      Ghost1227 says:

      I would need more information… what element are you tying CS to? What CSS overrides are in effect? Where do you want it to display?

  7. Buyer
    rawearthman says:

    I am trying to get an image to display as the entire background image, similar to what is shown at I have an image uploaded but it is not displaying. I have no CSS overrides in effect. Do I need that for this to function? If so, can you explain how I do that? Not sure what you mean by what element are you tying City Scapes to. I really just want to use the background image function. Thanks.

    • Verified Tailor
      Ghost1227 says:

      Right above the CSS Overrides option is a field called ‘CS Element’. This is necessary because not all themes have the same background element, and not everyone uses CS in the same way. You will have to determine the ID of the background element your theme uses and enter it in this field, or post the URL to your site so that I can try to figure it out for you.

    My Problem: The background image works great when I use the default auto-generated main menu navigation…but I need a more customized menu, so when I go to set this up (Appearance>Menus>Theme Location>main) … every page of my website loses the bg image.

    If I then switch back to the default main menu, the image is back.

    I need the image to work with a customized menu – what is the fix?

    I need help! Thanks in advance for a quick response


    I am using:
    GeoTheme CityScapes v 1.4 Plugin
    GeoTheme 3.1.1
    GeoTheme-child-BLANK v 1.0

    The plug-in has these settings used:

    CityScape Options:
    Background Element:
    CSS Overrides:
    #header_outer{background: none !important;}

    This is my website:

    rawearthman says:

    Almost got it! You can see my site at The top section worked when I added #header_outer{background: none !important;}, and the Background Element: is set to #page How can I get the sides of the main content to show the image as well? Also, I would like the image to only be on the outer sides, not within the actual content of a page. Thanks.

    I have a simple yet powerful suggestion that I think is not there yet (will have to verify)

    It would be great if we could change the color scheme with the city section as well.
    An example is if we have a city with a nfl team being able to represent the teams color scheme with the city’s selection.

    Thanks and look forward to more great things to come from you.

    I have been getting this message when I am in administration;

    What might be the problem?

    • Verified Tailor
      Ghost1227 says:

      You’re running an old version of CityScapes. The file-get-contents dependency was deprecated in version 1.5 (which was released in June), and the update system that depended on it was phased out. Please download the latest version and update your plugin and the error will go away.

    Not sure how to update, I bought your bundle, ad manager and geotheme installation (I ended up doing myself) and the bundle and installation does not show up under recent purchases.

    • Verified Tailor
      Ghost1227 says:

      Ahh. You’ll have to contact the TT team about that. The authors featured in that bundle didn’t get a list of users who purchased, so I have no way to verify purchases. If they verify the purchase, I’ll be happy to send the updated file.

    I ws sent here from a forum comment in Geotheme forum because I want toi change the background image every time someone changes city of country.
    Ok I clicked on your demo, and in the drop down list you have Omaha, No Houston and Philadelphia listed three times, with no background image change at all just a black screen.
