Change section background color and other attributes in Basil template (7.1)

Recommended Posts

Please advise: I cannot share the site due to it being a re-build in a new template within my existing live site.

I'm trying to work out how to change the background color of a section, make it full-width, etc. in the Basil template. Not sure if I'm missing something, but it seems that in this and some templates, adding a 'section' to a page is not possible, so I've been building pages with blocks (I have also built pages with an index page and sections, which gives me control over this, but I can't nest those pages in the nav menu so I don't think that's possible in the example).

So, I'm curious if anyone can explain the best practice to make an entire section with multiple blocks, etc. a different color from other sections in the page? Please see example screenshots showing the section in question, block ids and some code from the page. Any ideas?
