Page Background

The Page/Video background attribute is similar to the banner attribute but is only present in the home pagetype. This attribute accpets background images and videos (.mp4 and .webm) that streches over the whole viewport and is behind the banner area. So applying a banner on the home pagetype overlaps the page/video background. A better way to synergies both the banner and page/video background is to use the page/video background as the background and the banner as the overlay (transparent textures) or opacity control (black background with transparency set to 50%). You can view this effect on the homepage. See below the steps to add the page background attribute
