  1. Here's how to add an image behind text in a Text Block. You may wish to be aware of the contrast between the text and the image behind it so that it is readable. White text on dark image, or vice versa, for example. Consider making the background image out of focus, darkening or lightening the image, or adding a semi-transparent white or black layer to the background image. And finally, before you dig in, there's a good chance things won't work the way you want them to on your first try. Don't let my instructions be your only guide. Look around the internet for other solutions that may be better or add more clarity for you. Best of luck. And HAVE FUN! ------------------------------------------------- Go to PAGES At bottom, click Add Section Under Layouts choose Blank Page Click cog to right of the New Page item Go to bottom of pop-up and turn off Enable Page (This keeps the page out of public view) Add the picture you want to show up behind your Text Box (This becomes a "holder" page for that image - or images - you want to put behind the text in your Text Block) Save this page Right click on the image and select Copy Image Address Paste that image in the address bar in another tab in your browser and the image should show up. Keep that tab available Go back to your home page and find the Text Block under which you want the image to appear Click on the Text Block as if to edit it Choose Settings Under General, make sure to give a name to that section: Page Title, Nav Title and URL Slug Close the pop-up In the menu on the left, select Design>Custom CSS In Custom CSS, paste the following in the window: #thenameofthepageyoujustcreated { background-image: url("thehyperlinkyoujustcopiedintothenewtabinyourbrowser"); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: center center; background-attachment: scroll; background-size: cover; } Click SAVE at the top of that section and you're done.
