Background Image Dashboard

Hi everybody!

I have been searching this forum, for a answer but couldnt find it so far...

I want to change the Background of my Dashboard to a picture.
I have read about changing the httpStatic in the settings, but the path doesnt seem to appear:

I do not understand what else i have to change.
I read the docu to the settings.js file but cant find the answer.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I think you may have mis-typed this line in your settings.js file.

I think it should be... httpStatic: '/home/pi/image/',

Unfortunately it didnt make a difference ... eventho i restarted node red

I found my problem .... my fault. Still thank you!!

Can you share what was the problem/solution for the sake of other people who might read this thread?

Sure ...Since it wasnt me who set up node red on the raspberry pi, someone f*** up and installed it twice. I then checked if I was in the right "settings.js" file, but i wasnt.
If you have a look on my screenshot, i had the /usr/lib..../settings.js opended, but on the node red log it says [info] Settings file : /home/pi/.node-red/settings.js

It just didnt appear to me that we have 2 node red versions on this raspberry pi... which is not good

You don't have two versions. The one in /usr is the master version that is copied into your .node-red folder for use at runtime.
It is not advisable to accuse others in that way unless you understand the evidence.

You could also do it right inside NR using a dashboard template node with the following code:.

    body {
        background-image: url("/Dashback_2021a.jpg");  // file path
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        background-size: auto;
        background-position: bottom left;
