How to change page loading colour

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.laztheplantscientist.com/

How do I change the colour that appears when loading a page? Currently, when I load the homepage of the site, the background is green. This is part of my site style colour theme pallet, but I would like it to be the beige that is also part of the pallet. 

 

I have changed the 'Background overlay' in the colour themes but that didn't work. Do I need custom CSS? 

 

I tried this code but it didn't work: 

[data-section-id="5dd3cc728ca6f6715d3b6571"] .section-background {
    background: red !important;
}

 

Please help me squarespace gods!

1. The overlay menu background needs to be beige like the rest of the site. I want to keep the logo there

2. Menu items in overlay menu need to be purple, like the rest of the site. 

4. mobile header needs to be purple with beige text, like the rest of the site 

 

Essentially, everything needs to be the same as the standard desktop site!

 

Thank you so much. You are a legend within the squarespace forum community!!

Hi @tuanphan dont apologise your so much help! 

 

So, that code partly worked. What I am after is: 

 

- The overlay text, overlay 'X' and the banner (in mobile view) to be this purple #6A154D. I need the text on the button to be beige #FBF4E5 (see screenshot) 

Screen Shot 2021-05-07 at 15.58.56.png

Add this under above code

/* Mobile */
.burger-inner div {
    background-color: #6A154D !important;
}
nav.header-menu-nav-list * {
    color: #6A154D !important;
}
a.theme-btn--primary.btn {
    color: #FBF4E5 !important;
}

You mean "Free shipping.." bar?

Hello I have a similar question. On my page ( https://www.thegirlwhocanbemoved.com/travel-aid ) I have the code:

 

Background Image:

body#collection-60c2c0bbe7029058c001fb90 .main-content {
    background-image: url(https://static1.squarespace.com/static/60bdc87395311344b2c32700/t/60c2f21d25578e34f1291620/1623388705704/jeremy-zero-EzvUzveWprI-unsplash.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-size: cover;
    background-position: center center;
  opacity: 1 
}

 

 

I am trying to add this as an overlay to the entire page:


body#collection-60c2c0bbe7029058c001fb90 .main-content {
    background: RGBA(3, 127, 138, .8)!important;    
}

I want to have an image for the background of a specific page and have an overlay on the background for that page.

Find this code

body#collection-60c2c0bbe7029058c001fb90 .main-content {
    background: rgba(3,127,138,.8) !important;
}

Change it to

body#collection-60c2c0bbe7029058c001fb90 .main-content {
    background: rgba(3,127,138,.8) !important;
    background-image: url(https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2018/04/05/15/01/nature-3293045__340.jpg) !important;

That works for the most part! Thank you!!!! The image however is very zoomed in and blurry, do you know how to zoom it out?
