Background image not showing

Hi. 

I have used custom CSS to add a background image of repeating contour lines. Up until recently this was showing up but something I have done has made it disappear. I can't work out what though. Could anyone help please?

The custom CSS is below with the last section being the part for the background contours.

Thank you, Jacob.

Hi @hiddenroutes

Squarespace made a change to page sections in early November 2022, adding a new div with a section-border class. Any CSS intended to style section backgrounds that was added before this change would have stopped working - including yours.

You should be able to resolve this (at least temporarily) by making the new div transparent by adding the following CSS below your existing styles:

.section-border {
  background-color: transparent!important;
}

I said "temporarily" because this wasn't the last planned change to page sections, so this may stop working again in the near future. It will be worth keeping an eye on it.
