Background Pattern

Use a repeatable pattern as a background.

Choose a Background Pattern

You can choose a background pattern in the block sidebar by clicking on the ‘Choose Pattern’ button. You’ll be prompted to select an from your media library or upload a new one. This can be any image, but we recommend SVG (or PNG if SVG isn’t available) and we suggest using a pattern that repeats seamlessly.

Select a Background Size

The Background Size range field will scale the background pattern. Choose a size that looks good on both desktop and mobile.

The Background Size control in action. Be sure to select one that not only looks good, but also doesn’t get in the way of your content.

Set an Overlay

The overlay tool in your block sidebar lets you choose a color from your palette (with the addition of pure black or pure white). The overlay opacity slider will determines how much overlay to apply to the background image, with 100% being solid color. With most patterns, you’ll be able to completely tint your pattern with an overlay color, so if you upload one pattern SVG file in black or white you’ll be able to use it in any of your site’s palette colors simply by using the overlay tool.

Select X as the overlay color to disable the overlay completely, or set its opacity to 0%.

Background Attachment

A background with Fixed attachment will remain anchored to the browser window as the user scrolls, creating a parallax effect.
