Custom CSS for moving background image

Sarah Dec 14, 2018 08:37PM CET


I currently have a background image for my portfolio page. I am working in code pen to make the background move using this code (WIP):

width: 100%;
margin:0em 5%;
background-image: url("");
background-position: center bottom;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
animation: animatedBackground 30s linear infinite;
/* Safari and Chrome: */
-webkit-animation: animatedBackground 30s linear infinite;
@keyframes animatedBackground
from { background-position: 100% 0%; }
to { background-position: 100% 100%; }
@-webkit-keyframes animatedBackground
from { background-position: 100% 0%; }
to { background-position: 100% 100%; }

When I go to the page in Semplice, and select the branding tab, im putting the custom css in the "Edit Custom CSS" section, but i'm not seeing the results when I preview. I will see the new background blink for half a second when the page loads, but then disappear. Am I placing the custom code in the correct space (I also tried in the custom css in the "Customize" section for a moment but would like it to only effect the one page) or is the problem with my code or an override issue?

Thank you!

Hey Sarah!

Thanks for reaching out :)

Sadly, we can’t provide custom CSS support for customers looking to modify default Semplice functionality (we’re a small crew, and it’s not feasible for us to write custom CSS for every customer).

What I can say though is that this CSS code should work and the issue is probably more due to the fact you should target the ‘content-container’ class instead of the body class, or assign a custom class to a section in your Section Styles area and target a section with a custom class. Also, you might want to add !important rules at the end of each CSS line to force your changes, so for example:


background-color:#000000 !important;

instead of


I’m sorry I can’t assist more than this, but hope it points you in the right direction
