Hi Squarespace Code Lovers! 

Does anyone know how to insert (custom code) a horizontal gallery block (FULL WIDTH) with a colored background ON a Blog Page (not landing page). Example attached with link to website that has this on a blog "story" page. 

I'm stumped 🙃

Thank you in advance 🙏




Technically it can be achieve by target the row that contain the gallery block and the text, you can add a spacer above that row to target it using css.


body:not(.sqs-edit-mode) #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1618152424008_5736 {
  display: none;
#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1618152424008_5736 + .row {
  position: relative;
#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1618152424008_5736 + .row:before {
  content: '';
  position: absolute;
  width: 100vw;
  height: 100%;
  top: 0;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  background: red;

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1618152424008_5736 is the spacer id, that can find using this extension
