I love the block editor in content template! I'm still learning and confused what is possible. At the moment I'm searching for a way to add a custom image field (or featured image if possible) as a background image for - well, what ever is possible - header, slider, column, simple text, anything. Toolset container doesn't seem to have this feature, I bet other blocks than Toolset don't have it either.

What would be your suggestion to achieve this? A separate view perhaps?

Hi Katja

In the screenshot you should be able to see I have a Container block, and in the sidebar for the background I've specified an image, and set the dynamic source to be the featured image.

You should be able to use image custom fields, too.

I'm glad you're enjoying trying out the new blocks.


Hmm... I can't see any screenshot.


Yes yes I found it, thank you Nigel!
