The Split component can include an extra inner wrapper element to carry a background (it needs this inner container to allow the media to overflow beyond the background area while preserving vertical spacing. See the Pop-out Media variation).

The wrapper element has the class mzp-c-split-bg and you can add any of the standard background classes or apply your own CSS:

  • Secondary: mzp-t-background-secondary
  • Tertiary: mzp-t-background-tertiary
  • Dark: mzp-t-dark
  • Secondary dark: mzp-t-dark mzp-t-background-secondary
  • Tertiary dark: mzp-t-dark mzp-t-background-tertiary

To make the background butt against the content above or below the Split, without additional vertical spacing, add the class mzp-t-split-nospace to the outer container (mzp-c-split). This is especially useful when using Split as a hero section at the very top of a page, or if you have a stack of splits with alternating background colors. Note that images can’t “pop out” of a Split without that additional space, so the nospace and pop variations are incompatible.
