Background Image

If I want to put a background image behind all of JIRA, what do I need to do? I know i can modify the look and feel for colors, etc, but how do i add background images or color?

You could also use CUTE Plugin, see: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/de.communardo.atlassian.plugins.cute

To use it as a background, look no further than here: https://support.communardo.de/display/cute/JIRA+Wallpaper+Extension

The good thing about this solution is, that it's a plugin, you could switch it on or of. Also you can change the wallpaper quite easily and schedule wallpaper switching using JavaScript. Plus you can do a whole lot more with CUTE :)

You could write your own CSS file and include it via the announcment banner.

Eg: <link href="http://url-to-css-file" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Is there another way, so say hardcode it in

You can surely search the right velocity file and edit that there, but I wouldn't recommend this, as you have to redo your changes as soon as you update Jira.

I don't believe there is a plugin for that, as it would have to change the existing Jira files.

Is there a plugin or can I edit one of the files?
