Hudson: How can I change the background color on one page?


arising

Question

Recommended Posts

  • 6

Changing the color on just one page is possible using a couple of CSS rules. Go to your one page, click the Settings button, then go to the Advanced tab. Enter the following into the Page Header Code Injection field:


<style>
 body {background-color: pink;}
 #canvas {background-color: pink;}
</style>

The first rule changes the entire page body. The content area has its own color setting though, so you must change that one separately. I’ve tried these rules on the demo site’s Read Me page, and they seem to do what you are after.

Possibly you might need to add !important after the color names, as in “…:pink !important;”. Try the above first. Add the !important if you need it.

It would be to your advantage to learn enough about CSS to personally understand what the above rules mean and how they work. That’s a shameless plug for my book, but it’s true too.

The Fulton template is better as a separate question, and it would help if you posted a link to the specific page you want to colorize. For regular pages though, the following seems to work:


#siteWrapper {background-color: green;}

And then you can target the footers with:


#preFooter {background-color: green;}
#footer {background-color: green;]

Index pages may require a different technique.

I had time for only a fast look while eating breakfast, and hope the above helps.

Hi Jonathan, are you able to help with the background color of a page under an index? i have tried:


<style>
#editions {background-color: #f3f2ed;}
</style> 

under the Index > Settings > Advanced > page header code injection. But still no luck

wow I spent hours and nothing worked but this actually worked. I just bought your e-book now because you helped me. I was about to pull my hair out. I am hoping to learn from it. I got a feeling this will be a good investment. I also have a feeling I will be working with a few squarespace sites in the future. Thanks again.

Hi Jonathan – this is almost exactly what I need also. I'm working with the OM template and this changes the Site Background – how do I change the Canvas Background? I will have a look at your eBook also! Many thanks, Alex

Hello, 

I have tried the first rule and it worked for my individual product pages well - thank you. I am trying to do the same for my entire product catalogue page in just one shop only (rather than both of my shops). So rather than white in the background ( as per image attached), I want to use #FAE8D7.

I was also hoping to change the background from grey to #FAE8D7 in the individual product page (in the second image)

Can anyone help please? I am using  Version 7.0– Supply family (Supply template). 

thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi @tuanphan we are running into a similar issue with our site where we are trying to add a color to the top part of the landing page with the logo and navigation. The link is below as well as the password. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You mean add background color for profile, contact...bar?

Something like this?
