change background color on specific index page

Mule Horse
Go to solution Solved by CSmith333,


Does anyone know how to change the background color on a specific index page? I'm able to change the background color on the individual page using:

.collection-[id] #siteWrapper {
background-color:#ccc !important;

However, when viewing this page as part of an index, it defaults back to the original color. This is using the Hayden template.

To start with this you will need to use the slug of the page in the Index you want to adjust as the id (after the #) will use the page slug.

For example, if your page slug was named home, you could use this code in the main custom CSS tab.

.collection-type-index #home {background:red}

YASSS!!! Thank you so much! This post needs to be bumped up higher, and probably deserves a blog post or tutorial or something. Here's the code I used:

 .collection-type-index #who-we-serve {
 background-color: #e8eddb, !important;

@csmith333 How did you know to target .collection-type-index ? I don't remember seeing that anywhere when I was looking at the code using Google dev tools. Is there some super secret master list of all Squarespace selectors somewhere?

Help!!! What am I doing wrong?  It looks correct in the Squarespace builder but when I go to check it on another device it's not working...


.collection-602aa939c1889644fc2abcc1 #pe-class{
  background: #E5E2DA !important

Most of the sections have color changes.


#pe-class {

  background-color: #E5E2DA;


#coaching {
