To change the background image, please follow the steps below and leave a message in our discord group if you get stuck anywhere!

1. Open your repository on GitHub and navigate to this page:

Click “upload files” and upload the image you want to use as the background image. Make sure it’s a dark image and the dimensions should be roughly (1280×720) like this one from Ryan's widget page:

2. Click on the index.html file and press the edit pencil button on the top right. You should now be in edit mode.

3. Around line 85 you’ll find this:

.page-center {
display: flex;
align-items: center;
justify-content: center;
height: 100vh;
}

Replace this code with the following:

.page-center {
display: flex;
align-items: center;
justify-content: center;
height: 100vh;
background-image: url("YOUR_IMAGE_NAME.jpg");
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;
background-size: cover;
}

Replace YOUR_IMAGE_NAME.jpg with the file name of the image you uploaded, e.g. image.png or image.jpg.

4. Scroll all the way down and “Commit Changes”.

That should be all. After a few moments the image should appear. If it doesn’t, try incognito mode in any browser or clean the cache, then reload.
