A container for other blocks with fully editable background options.

The background block allows you to nest other components inside of it, and provide a selectable background color, image and overlay, video, or pattern to underlay your content. Any other block can be placed inside of a background, including other background blocks.

We suggest putting most of your content on design-heavy pages inside of a background to break it up into easily editable groups. This makes sliding around content easier and gives you options to display your content in unique and interesting ways. Setting your content in a background makes it easy to break up sections of your page visually to establish flow and hierarchy.

Background blocks can also be set as slides in the Slider block.
