Add background for text only, not the whole block, on Degraw?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am trying to figure out how to add a shaded area/box behind my text so that the text stands out and is easily readable. I have been able to add a background photo that fills the whole block, which I like, but it's difficult to read the text as you can see in my screen shot that is attached. I just want some kind of shaded/opaque area behind the text. Any guidance for someone with little experience is much appreciated!

So currently within that section of your page you are using a Text Block, which you cannot add this type of background to. One alternative though instead would be to use a Markdown Block instead, https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205813788-Markdown-Blocks I recommend that because a Markdown Block will display text but also allows for code to be used within it which you can attempt to use to place a background color behind your text as you wish. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815928-Adding-custom-HTML-CSS-and-JavaScript

 

If you're unsure of what to use though you can always checkout out forum as well as it's full of Squarespace customers who use code on their sites daily and who attempt to assist others with is as well. https://forum.squarespace.com/
