Shopify themes, liquid, logos, and UX
Is there a way to add a background for a specific section on the home page? I am using the Express free theme and I chose secondary background color but it only applies to one specific section when I add it. I'd like to add it to a different section of my choosing. Is that possible? Please help!
Hey @Mau8210 ,
Yeah, that's possible of course. But you'll need basic CSS & Liquid knowledge in order to do that yourself. Please share the details so I can help.
Okay so the theme is the express free shopify theme, I am adding a section on the home page [multi-column] and I want to have a specific color as the background for that section only or maybe an image. Where do I go in the code to do that? I thought adding secondary background would do it since its right there on the theme settings but it seems to only change the background of certain sections [image with text]. Can you help me figure out how to change specifically the background of only that one section that Im trying to add?
=> First, you have to find out which section file is responsible for the multi-column section.
=> Then you have to wrap the corresponding code within a wrapper html element and write css for it, as per your requirement. It can be background-color, background-img or even both depending on your wish.
=> Then write schema to collect input from the customizer and output the schema values using liquid within your statically applied css and html.
That might sound a little complex if you don't have much liquid/css coding experience. But if you do, this should be easy peasy. You can ping me for further assistance or do the code for you.
Sorry you are facing this issue, it would be my pleasure to help you.
