Hi

i have a background image on body tag nad is set to background-attachment:fixed.

However this causes the min-width property of body and html tags to be ignored and the background keeps moving left on smaller screens

See what i mean here - http://dev.openwaterdesign.com/cutting_edge_coaching/

Any ideas how to solve?

Thanks

The background shifts because you positioned it center top so it keeps the center of the image in the center of the vieport, and that forces it to move.

Min-width is doing exactly what it is supposed to do when the viewport gets less than 960px it adds scrollbars.

So why then is the background moving left if the width is 960px?

the background should be central to 960px but its not doing that

The image is 1366x918. Therefore its center is 683px from the edge and as the viewport narrows has to shift to compensate and keep 683 in the middle of the viewport.  Background images are not part of the content and they do not adjust to content position.

You could try changing
body {
  background: url("../img/banner-home.jpg") no-repeat scroll center top #000;
  font-family: "Roboto",sans-serif;
}

Open in new window

To
body {
  background: url("../img/banner-home.jpg") no-repeat scroll left top #000;
  font-family: "Roboto",sans-serif;
}

Open in new window

That will stop the background image from shifting - if that is what you want it to do?

You get the same effect by changing the center to left as shown in my previous post.

Use the fixed attachment with in background attributes like:
background: url("../img/banner-home.jpg") no-repeat fixed center top #000;

Open in new window
