Background color for full width


Question

Posted · Report post

I am trying to style the background colors in certain sections to span into margins. I've tried resetting content-pad and resizing some containers and nothing seems to work. What's the easiest way? 

 

This is the page - I want the black to extend to the edge: http://www.cooksmarts.com/about/

 

Basically I want it to look like the "How We Do It" section here: http://cooksmarts.staging.wpengine.com/about/

Hi,

 

It seems that the fundamental difference is the layout width. This is found at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Layout Editor.

 

On the possibility of making that section full width, I think the problem is going to be your Site Design Mode. If using Full Width Sections, I think it may be possible, provided that the section we're trying to background is a full-width section.  However, you're using, it seems, the content area for the first example, and in the second, the full-width sidebar.

 

Since you can't expand an area within the content area beyond its boundaries, I think the only way is going to be to use the full-width or universal sidebar to achieve this goal.
