Hi, i am having trouble creating themes. I am new to adapt and am trying to create a page with a constant flowing background image. Can anyone offer any help at all?

single image or multiple images?
how is your css / less knowledge?
are you using the authoring tool or the framework by hand?

Hi Oliver. It will be 3 images in total
My css/less knowledge is very very basic, if that!
Im using the online adapt system 'adapt authoring tool'
you'll have to forgive me, i am brand new to this

ahh, i would say, learn how to do it with basic html, javascript and css first, so you can quantify the problem... or failing that, you can have a look at the extensions in the plugin browser https://www.adaptlearning.org/index.php/plugin-browser/
there are a few related to backgrounds
i'm not sure if any of them are authoring tool compatible
as it's possible to make extensions which cannot be uploaded and used in the authoring tool

^ this one has a demo
looks pretty pretty

^ on the issues tab on the code homepage it looks as though it's not AT compatible as the only issue is one for AT support

The other thing i am having issues with in AT is uploading an MP4 video. I upload as a new asset but once reaching 100% (or full load bar depending on if im loading it from asset management or directly into a block) the page just sits and the video never shows in the assets tab
