Index page background image in 7.0? (NOT page/section banners)

Recommended Posts

I'm working with a client-installed template using Brine, and I want to insert a background image on all the main pages. But the template uses Index pages and I can't find a way to set a background image for the entire Index page, as opposed to the banners for each "page"/section. Here's an example with the background set for the top section.  You can see it's cut off - Instead I want the background to fade out gradually behind the first 2-3 sections.

I know I can accomplish this by combining sections/pages so there's one banner for all the content, but that's not ideal at all. I've attached a Figma screenshot of what I want it to look like.

Yes!! Thank you so much @tuanphan! So simple but now I know 😁 I added background-repeat: no-repeat and it's exactly what I needed. You're the best. 


Edited for anyone finding this later - I actually used the following, so the image would scale to the width of the window but not repeat either horizontally or vertically:

background-size: 100%;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
