Trouble with "Data-Section-ID" on 7.0 Brine

Recommended Posts

I see lots of people reference their "data-section-id" code when making interface changes to the 7.0 Brine layouts. 

When I check my code, I'm only able to locate "data-collection-id" but this doesn't work with a lot of the online codes I've seen for the "data-section-id."

Is this something I did differently when creating my site or why am I not finding numerical values for my "data-section-id"?

It seems like a necessary piece to making specific layout changes for mobile, etc.

The "data-section-id" usually refers to a section on a 7.1 page, not 7.0. On your site, each page within an index has a text-based ID like the #montage example in your screenshot above.

If you'd like help changing something, please provide us with a working link to the page and tell us what you are trying to change. Once we have this information we can suggest the best way to approach it.

@paul2009 Got it, thanks! Double-checked and it is a 7.0 template. 

I'm trying to do a couple things on my page. 1) My video that plays on my homepage is slightly cropped from its original export and I was wondering how to adjust the aspect ratio of that video so it looks better and 2) the mobile interface is a mess, so I was wondering how to scale down the size of the homepage video, text, etc so it's more visually appealing. 

I've see people post codes for those types of changes on 7.1 but was wondering if there's codes I can enter for 7.0 to make those changes as well.
