Can a block have its own background colour?

Question

Can each Block in the layout engine have its own background colour?

This would be a big way to customize the look of the templates.

This has been discussed various times on here but I don’t think I’ve seen a definitive simple answer – in particular there’s been a lot of discussion across various threads that block IDs YUI seem to change so targeting a block ID with color doesn’t seem to work permanently.

Colored blocks are pretty standard now on major websites as a way of structuring different types of content. See the examples below:

i'm sure you worked it out by now, but just add the text: color:#000000;

substitute the zeros for whatever hex value your colour is
