Custom section visibility
Toggle ON or OFF the custom section. Remember: These sections are optional and only there for you if you need them. In many cases, you’ll want to leave these sections OFF.
Text/HTML Container Width
This is the width of the Text/HTML container. While your background image is always full width, the text container can be sized to meet your needs. It’s generally best to use “Max Width 1170px” unless you are working with your own custom HTML.
Text/HTML Content box width
This controls the width of the Text/HTML content. This may seem confusing, but it’s common web layout strategy. Think of it like this: The CONTENT is inside the CONTAINER. Your container can either extend full-width or max out at 1170px. Your content can then further be specified to take up a percentage of that container. This allows you an incredible amount of flexibility within your Text/HTML design and layout.
Upload a background image. A background image will override a background color selection.
Set a background color. It’s a good idea to set a background color that is close to your image or brand color. With a slow internet connection, the background color may appear quickly before an image fully loads.
Media vertical alignment
Control the vertical alignment of your background image. Align the background image to the top, center, or bottom of the section. Vertical and horizontal alignment settigns can be used together to keep a particular part of your image in view for different screen sizes.
Media horizontal alignment
Control the horizontal alignment of your background image. Align the background image to the left, center, or right of the section. Vertical and horizontal alignment settings can be used together to keep a particular part of your image in view for different screen sizes.
Add padding to the top of the Text/HTML container.
Add padding to the bottom of the Text/HTML container.
