Frequently Asked Questions
Q. 1 Can I use the background graphics on my bulletin board?

Q. 2 Can I use the background graphics on my auction page?
A. 2 The Catholic Doors Ministry background graphics were created for non-profit usage. If your site is not created to "make money", you can use the graphics without further permission. Since you website was created to make money through auctions, we DO NOT grant permission to use the graphics for free.
Q. 3 How do I save the background graphics on my computer?
A. 3 Using the Internet Explorer program,
(1) right click on your mouse;
(2) a window will pop up;
(3) click on "SAVE BACKGROUND AS";
(4) a window called "SAVE PICTURE" will appear;
(5) indicate where you want to save your graphics so you will find it when you need it.
Q. 4 Why do I get only one frame of the background graphic on my computer?
A. 4 If you html code your page to save the graphic as a picture, you will get only one frame. In order for the graphic to be tiled as a background, you must enter the name of the graphic in the (body) command of your page. Reviewing the source of your page, you will see the word (body) that is followed by (bgcolor="white") or another colour, or letters and numbers that define a color. On that same line, you must enter the command to tile your graphic as a background. That command, without the round brackets, is: (background="picture.gif"). Where it says (picture.gif), replace it with the name of your graphic that can end with (gif) or (jpg). Now you should have a tiled background graphic.
If you still do not understand, look at the source of this page by using the Internet Explorer, clicking on "view" and then clicking on "source." You will see beside (body) the command (background="../crossbk.gif") which means that my cross graphic is called (crossbk.gif). The (../) means that my graphic is located in one lower directory. Ignore this part of the command.
Q. 5 Why won't the background graphic print on my printer?
A. 5 Because your computer is programmed not to print backgrounds. To change that, using the Internet Explorer program, at the top of your window screen,
(1) click on "tools";
(2) click on "Internet option" at the bottom;
(3) click on "Advanced" at the top right of the window that popped up;
(4) Look for "printing" as a heading;
(5) Put a tick in the box that says, "Print background images and colours";
(6) Save the changes;
(7) Now your backgrounds should print.
Note: Printing backgrounds uses a lot of ink. You may wish to undo this after having printed your background. To undo it, follow the same steps as above. At # 5, remove the tick that you put in the box to "Print background images and colours."
