Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there is a way to assign different colors to image collage background colors when there are multiple on a page. I.e. I'd like each of these tan boxes to be a different color as follows:

1st - dk green #496738
2nd - light green #79973D
3rd - light blue #90B0B6
4th - cream #FBF7EB

Yes, you can do this with some CSS. If you know how to use CSS to change all of them, you can simply prefix this with the YUI Block ID of the particular image block.

For example: #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1620539343869_16876 (and a space) would be added before the CSS selectors that you planned to use, such as .sqs-block-image .design-layout-collage .image-card

Does that help, or do you need more specific help?
