Background color and image for posts and pages

The content area of each post/page layout is controlled with the settings for your WordPress content module , where you can pick a background color or background image.

This is different from the general background color/image options for the layout blocks, rows, and columns – if the controls described below do not help achieve the look you are after, try working with Background color/image instead.

Edit the background color or image behind page content

To edit the color or image applied behind your page/post content, you can follow these steps:

  1. Edit your layout and click to edit settings for your WordPress content module .
  2. In the popup, click the Content styles side tab.
  3. Click the Background view for image settings.
  4. Choose to set the background color transparent, or use the color picker to select a color visually or by number, including color opacity level, as needed.
  5. Upload or select a background image and choose position, repeat, size, and attachment options as needed. (details below)
