Overriding alt font colors on background image

Recommended Posts

I'm using the Impact theme and have added a very light background image in one section. I have set my alternative colors to lighter choices as this is what I will need for the majority of the site, but for this particular section I would like to use my original darker color. Is there a way to override this alt color for my H3, but only on this particular section of the site?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

If this section is part of an Index, you can target that specific section with Custom CSS using the unique `id` Squarespace assigns to the section. The `id` is based on the name of the page. Your site visibility is set to private, so nobody in the community can view the site unless you assign and share a password. Your custom css would look something like this:

#page-section-name {
  h3 { color: initial; }

Thanks @e2astudio - I have tried your suggested CSS but either I am doing something incorrect or its not working...

In the page settings, I entered the following in the Advanced section:

#coaching-readiness {
  h3 { color: 345746; }

Any ideas why it's not taking? 

You can now view the page using password SS123. Thanks!

@lindi Add this to Home > Design > Custom CSS


div#block-7c5da140197e0cb6d0a5 h3 {
    color: #333;

or you can also use this code

#coaching-readiness h3 { 
   color: #345746;
