Ever thought you could tile the background of a Divi Section by adding an image to the module’s Background Image field?

If you’re looking for a source of seamless background tiles, my two favourite sources are subtlepatterns.com and bg.siteorigin.com.

I’ve bookmarked your site and will be following along, as I’m developing with Divi/WP for the first time to create a new school website. If I run across any cool Divi css hacks that you may want to post, I’ll let you know as well. God bless!
