Can't Delete Background Image -

Permalink 1 user found helpful
I was playing around with the customizing the theme Fundamental and added a background image to the Header Image area. Now I don't want it there, but seems to be no way to delete it. If I click the background image button within the Fundamental/Customize Theme/Header Image area, I only get a choice to choose a new image, not delete the one that's there. Ideas?

We just had this trouble and discovered that if you go to the little gear-like icon for advanced options and choose clear styles it will remove the background image. We are using a different theme, but it might be similar. Basically, it was confusing and not at all obvious how to remove a background image once it had been set.

This is a current limitation of the theme customizable styles. There is a workaround though.

Use a 1px transparent PNG file as the default image in the theme customizable style. Using the transparent PNG, this will make the default state transparent (using only 150 bytes or so), allowing new background images to be selected and removed by clearing them.

There is an active issue for this. I recommend commenting if you would like for this feature to be added.
