Can I add a dark background behind white text on images

    I’ve put an image on my block that has dark and white text on it… so you can really read the heading or title on the homepage or the post. I think from some posts on this forum it automatically picks dark or light text – but with this particular image neither will work. Is there anything I can do? Any CMS I can add for this particular page?

    Hi, getting the right contrast can be challenging, I would recommend sticking with very light or dark images and trying to avoid images with a medium contrast.

    You could try adding a dropshadow to the title text to improve the legibility:

    .featured-title {
        text-shadow: 1px 1px 5px #000;
