Is there a way to implement two different background images for the front and the back of a card? With ' background-image: url("example.jpg"); ' I can use example.jpg from the anki folder but it seems to work only for card styles, not div etc. .

    I'm afraid we can't provide official support for HTML and CSS, so I'll move this question to the community forum.

    Hello, male

    I've just tried on computer version of Anki and this works for me:
    <div style='background-image:url("front_image.jpg")';> front of card here </div>

    <div style='background-image:url("back_image.jpg")';> back of card here </div>

    If it doesn't help, please give more information about your card template.

    Hello keldi,

    thanks for your help. I have tried it before but I never saw the image because the div was empty.

    Thank you very much!
