Dynamic Backgrounds (Probably a simple fix)


#1

Help, I'm a print designer lost in Webflow...

I'm having an issue pulling the thumbnail (or main image of a blog post) into a the BG of a featured post (hero) section on the Index. The only way I got it to work is to create a dynmic div and add the dynamic BG that way. I'm almost postive i'm doing it wrong.

However, and becuase it's a div, it's jacking up paragraph text thats over it. What the hell am I doing?!

Oh that's weird it wasn't showing up, anyway I'll take a look now :smile:

So from what I can see there are some structural issues.

The "Featured BG image" div isn't necessary, get rid of that and set the "Featured" Dynamic Item's background image like the below video:

See if you can follow it along?
