Adding a custom background to a page/section in 7.1 - Trouble with code


IMPACT

Question

Site URL: https://www.impactpa.church/kids

I've  done quite a bit of browsing across the web trying to follow different tutorials to get a custom background to work in squarespace. Does 7.1 even allow custom backgrounds?

I've tried using some different backgrounds from heropatterns.com but haven't been able to get any to work.

I'd ideally like to use the background for the whole page minus the header and the footer, but I can't even get my code to work for a section.

.page-section[data-section-id="5f6202a7242abe11d0086eec"] {background-color: #DFDBE5;
background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg width='100' height='100' viewBox='0 0 100 100' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'%3E%3Cpath d='M11 18c3.866 0 7-3.134 7-7s-3.134-7-7-7-7 3.134-7 7 3.134 7 7 7zm48 25c3.866 0 7-3.134 7-7s-3.134-7-7-7-7 3.134-7 7 3.134 7 7 7zm-43-7c1.657 0 3-1.343 3-3s-1.343-3-3-3-3 1.343-3 3 1.343 3 3 3zm63 31c1.657 0 3-1.343 3-3s-1.343-3-3-3-3 1.343-3 3 1.343 3 3 3zM34 90c1.657 0 3-1.343 3-3s-1.343-3-3-3-3 1.343-3 3 1.343 3 3 3zm56-76c1.657 0 3-1.343 3-3s-1.343-3-3-3-3 1.343-3 3 1.343 3 3 3zM12 86c2.21 0 4-1.79 4-4s-1.79-4-4-4-4 1.79-4 4 1.79 4 4 4zm28-65c2.21 0 4-1.79 4-4s-1.79-4-4-4-4 1.79-4 4 1.79 4 4 4zm23-11c2.76 0 5-2.24 5-5s-2.24-5-5-5-5 2.24-5 5 2.24 5 5 5zm-6 60c2.21 0 4-1.79 4-4s-1.79-4-4-4-4 1.79-4 4 1.79 4 4 4zm29 22c2.76 0 5-2.24 5-5s-2.24-5-5-5-5 2.24-5 5 2.24 5 5 5zM32 63c2.76 0 5-2.24 5-5s-2.24-5-5-5-5 2.24-5 5 2.24 5 5 5zm57-13c2.76 0 5-2.24 5-5s-2.24-5-5-5-5 2.24-5 5 2.24 5 5 5zm-9-21c1.105 0 2-.895 2-2s-.895-2-2-2-2 .895-2 2 .895 2 2 2zM60 91c1.105 0 2-.895 2-2s-.895-2-2-2-2 .895-2 2 .895 2 2 2zM35 41c1.105 0 2-.895 2-2s-.895-2-2-2-2 .895-2 2 .895 2 2 2zM12 60c1.105 0 2-.895 2-2s-.895-2-2-2-2 .895-2 2 .895 2 2 2z' fill='%239C92AC' fill-opacity='0.4' fill-rule='evenodd'/%3E%3C/svg%3E");

For a whole page effect we need something different.

Remove the previous CSS, make a copy somewhere and add the following to Design > Custom CSS.

#collection-5f6133c1b027eb36546c97a1 {

  background-color : #dfdbe5;

Thank you so much - it worked awesome!

Hi. I see on mobile, text overlap input button.

Add this to Design > Custom CSS to add a spacing between them.

/* Footer text overlap button */
@media screen and (max-width:767px) {
footer.sections .newsletter-form-footnote {
    margin-top: 20px;
}
}

does not: (.has-background} only work in sections where a background has not been set? Is there code for when there is a background set and you want it to be overridden say just in the mobile view? Thanks

Yes that is what the not does.

Probably. It would be most useful if you could describe the effect you are trying to achieve.

Please post the URL for the page on your site where you are trying to achieve the effect.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so.

Post the password here.

Adding a site-wide password is not a security breach. Please read the documentation at the link provided to understand how it works.

We can then take a look at your issue.

Hi Creedon,

When using an svg as a background, is it necessary to include the full svg code in the url? I've seen a couple other posts that also refer to converting the svg to base64. But I'm using the url I pulled from having uploaded the svg file, and it seems to work fine -- though I've not tested it across all browsers. Is this method not advised?

Thanks,

john

No.

As I understand it there are 3 ways to include SVG.

As code within a page via a code block or code injection.

Via a url that references a file such as <img src="my.svg" />.

Via a url that references a file such as above but the SVG is encoded in the tag itself.

I would only use the last method if the other two couldn't be used. There do seem to be some potential ins and outs with this method. Although the following article is older some of the issues may still apply.

Probably Don’t Base64 SVG

hey @creedon,

I'm trying to adapt your code to a new site. Essentially, I want to add an image to the header section for the store and product pages of the site, but I don't have that option in the Design Site Styles and I don't know what code to use. I've added some screen shots. I want to have the purple leopard print in the header section for the product and other pages.12858254_ScreenShot2021-07-17at11_42_57PM.thumb.png.db9cc2fa5487ac8eb0b31aa9418be6f2.png1524952010_ScreenShot2021-07-17at11_37_14PM.thumb.png.033045ed50e825f154fffbeaa10e8abe.png
