Hi Damian
There is a way for insert a background animated image or a fullscreen background video like this website?

I've successfull changed the colour modifing the main.css file.

Tnx for your great work

  • Hi,

    I can't see the website you linked to because it's restricted to users from Italy only.

    To answer your question, yes it's possible to create a fullscreen video background. There is nothing specific required from CumulusClips to do this, you just need plain HTML and CSS. A quick Google search on how to create a fullscreen video background will get you what you want.

    If you wanted to implement this effect on your homepage, you would edit some of these files:

    /cc-content/themes/{YOUR_THEME}/index.phtml
    /cc-content/themes/{YOUR_THEME}/layouts/default.phtml
    /cc-content/themes/{YOUR_THEME}/css/general.css
    /cc-content/themes/{YOUR_THEME}/css/pages.css

    Also make sure you create a custom theme first. Otherwise any changes you make to your theme will be lost during updates. See this How-To article which explains how to create a custom theme by copying the default theme:
