Change the background color of a specific row in Brine 7.0

Happy Friday all!

I'm currently having a devil of a time trying to accurately target and write CSS for a specific row I'd like to change the background color for. I've attached a screencap indicating the area I'd like to change. 

I want to apply this to other areas as well, but I think I can do it myself if I'm just able to see how the structure looks for this one. 

I'm trying to change the background color to #85a5aa 

Thanks in advance for any help the community can provide!

Part of the issue is that SS uses dynamic IDs for many of the elements in a page and row elements are one. This means you have to target these types of elements escentially by position within the document.

Try the following.

#collection-57624c026b8f5b9b197478db .sqs-layout > .sqs-row > .sqs-col-12 > .sqs-row:nth-child( 11 ) {

  background-color : red;

If the structure of the page changes, it is very likely that you will need to update the CSS. Also note that the row does not span the full page. If you are looking for that effect you'd need to adjust the page, assuming it is even possible, given the template.

Let us know how it goes.

This worked great! 

Yeah, it would be great if Squarespace came up with some kind of simple migration tool for those of us who have invested a lot of work into our 7.0 sites. Sections in 7.1 would make this barely an afterthought. The recent satisfaction survey I took did include questions about interest in a migration tool, so hopefully that is in the works. 

For now, this will work well enough. Thanks a lot!
