Split sections suddenly not working

Go to solution Solved by LouiseDrever,

Hi there,


I'd previously used the following code to achieve a split screen layout, and it was working brilliantly up until recently. 


// Split section 1 //

@media @desktop {

  [data-current-styles*='"customContentWidth": 47'] {
    padding-top:0px !important;
  .section-background {
    width:50% !important;  

[data-current-styles*='"customContentWidth": 47']::before {


(There is a section directly below this one that isn't working either).


It's on this page: https://www.birminghamearlyyearsnetworks.org/nytb

Any help really appreciated!

You'll have to replace:



.page-section .section-border

Squarespace changed their HTML setup for backgrounds recently. I would suggest checking where you got the code originally, they might have updated it and tested it.
