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


IMPACT
Go to solution Solved by creedon,

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");
} 

Any help is appreciated!

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;
}
}

Hey Creedon,

That did the trick! Would this also work if I needed to do the whole page? Would I just replace the data-section-id with the collection id?

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.

I have a similar question with setting a background for a header on 7.1 and I'd appreciate your help - should I post it right here or create a new topic?

My website is at https://valueadd.one and the background image is at https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5fd93e78d71790315b73d336/t/6043d0d6aa4f2f10d5ed8f6d/1615057111443/60287_edited.png
