Hi. I'm trying to see if it would be possible to add a black border around my text section. I want the background behind the text to remain the blue color, but the borders black. See example below. If any one can help, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

This is an accepted solution.

Oh!! I misunderstood the requirement then.

 

Please delete all the code I've given you so far and replace it with this

<style>
section#shopify-section-template--14942274191423__rich_text_whJacC,
section#shopify-section-template--14942274191423__rich_text_whJacC > div {
    background: black;
}

.rich-text.content-container.color-background-1.gradient.section-template--14942274191423__rich_text_whJacC-padding {
    border-radius: 0 !important;
}

Hi @ThePrimeWeb! I'm editing a draft website using the Refresh theme, so what I'm working on isn't live. Here's my web link, anyway.

Hey @rchristianson,

 

Can you share the preview link for the draft website?

That's the live site again haha,

You should preview your theme and click Share Preview and send that link over.

Hey @rchristianson,

 

This will work  for you, but a fair warning first. The black colour is barely visible. I suggest you try some other colours as well

 

Example, you really have to squint haha

Go to your theme's "Edit Code" Option, then in the search bar type "theme.liquid"
Below the tag "<head>" tag paste the following. Screenshot attached for reference.

 

Change both "#000" to other colours
4px is the border thickness, reduce or increase according to preference.

<style>
.rich-text.content-container.color-background-1.gradient.section-template--14942274191423__rich_text_whJacC-padding {
    border-left: 4px solid #000 !important;
    border-right: 4px solid #000 !important;
    border-radius: 0 !important;
}
</style>

 

Screenshot is for reference only, the correct code to paste is the one shown above.

Thank you @ThePrimeWeb! That definitely worked in adding a black border, but I can't seem to get it to go the edges of the section. I tried playing with the border thickness vs radius, but it wasn't what I was envisioning. Perhaps it's user error lol

Hey @rchristianson,

 

If you want to change the radius, you need to add the measurement unit after the number 
Example: "1000px".

"1000" by itself won't work because there's no measurement unit.

 

Only 0 works because zero means whatever unit it is, make sure it's nothing.

P.S. 1000 is way too high.

Yeah, I did try keeping it at "0" radius, but can only get so thick w/ the border bc it starts looking like this:

this is 300x thickness.

 

I want to keep the size of the text box, just fill the edges in as black, like this: (red scribbles being black)
