Hi All: I'm trying to create a colour behind a block of text (the text has links) - just like the squarespace guides. Wondering if anyone has a standard code for this ?

You can identify the block code with its id and apply some custom css, what is your site url

Folks. Everything Squarespace is not based on SS's website builder. This forum for example and their support site (is probably) not built on the website builder.

So an effect you see in one place is not necessary applicable to an SS site built with its builder.

But as bangank36 mentions we won't know if we can help until we can see your site.

You can do something like the following for a text block as bangank36 mentioned.

Add the following to Design > Custom CSS.

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1637821034280_21762 {

  background-color : lightgrey;
  padding-top : 17px
  
  }

The first block on a page doesn't get top padding so if you add a background color you may want to put the padding back in.

You can find block ids by checking out Heather Tovey's most excellent looking Squarespace ID Finder.

Let us know how it goes.
