Changing background graphic and dragon's head

I don't really want the background graphic - would prefer just solid black - or the dragon's head symbol on each of my pages.

Is Ascendant membership needed to change both of these, or is there something I can do now, while I am experimenting and making my decision as to whether or not to go Ascendant?

    You'll need ascendant membership, as the Custom CSS is needed to remove/alter these.

    OK, I have ascended membership. How is this done?

    Set the z index to something negative- I tend to really go far- here is my code for it
    ==.flame-dragon {z-index: -100; height:15px;}==

    If you're looking to have no dragon head and a plan black background, the following should get you setup:

    @.campaign-public-layout .page-background {background:none;background-color:black;}
    .campaign-public-layout .flame-dragon {display:none;}@

    on a related note - can i get some 'z-index' help? (this is all part of re-formatting the character layout by the way, using the tiled character layout that has been posted on several threads previously)

    I want to stack three things on top of each other (a 'character sketch' img, 'name plate' img and then the text for the character on top the 'nameplate' img... i have been trying several "z-index: -10" (etc) but cant manage to get them to stack.... any suggestion as to what i may be doing wrong?

    Is your placement correct? Doing the exact px distance, or % distance, for each piece?

    i think so,

    if you go here - https://practice2.obsidianportal.com/characters

    you will see what I am trying to achieve - you can see the name plates in place for each character tile, and you can see the character image for Dianna in place (the only one I have done so far)

    but the name plate for Dianna is behind her character image for some reason...

    I was hoping to do it this way so i dont have to completely re-format all my pre-existing character images to include a 'name plate' at the bottom (yes, i am lazy, its often the source of my best work ;) )

    @NikMak

    If you're looking at layering images to add a name plate stamp or the like, make sure the topmost image is listed first in the "background-image" property.

    More by luck than skill; but it turns out they are already listed in the order you recommend.

    Im starting to suspect i will have to re-do each character image to include the nameplate - not difficult but monotonous :) ahh well, i was planning to standardize the character portraits at some point in the future anyway!

    If you want me to take a look at what you've got at some point let me know. Happy to help out if requested.

    Thats really kind of you :) thanks.

    I would welcome the help in tidying up my code once i have it sorted (too many !important tags by far my liking), and there are few glitches here and there that need sorting as well

    I will sort out the character portraits and then make a 'snagging list' and get back in touch with you. Its likely to be a while however, as working on the web site is my 7th or 8th priority most evenings!
