Display a featured image as a background image

Am trying to get a featured image to show as a background image, and need to figure out the HubL to call a featured image from inside some HTML.

 

Thanks to @Jsum for part of the answer here

 

This is what I have so far, but not sure how to write  'background: url '  so it calls the image. 

 

 

{% for feature_item in featured_topic %}

{% image_src "image_src" %}

<div class="featured-post">
<div class="span6"> 

{% if feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image %}

<span style='background: url ( {% image_src "{{ feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image }}" %} ) center center no-repeat; background-size: cover;' class="hs-featured-image featured-post-image-1">

</span>
{% endif %}
</div>

You are using a span tag which is an inline element (like text). It can't be styled like block elements. Do you have "display: block;" assigned to the span tag in your css? if not you can try that or use a div element instead of a span tag which is probably better syntax.

 

Also, regardless of element used, a height and a width need to be set other wise nothing is keeping it from being 0x0.

 

hopefully ones of these helps. Also quotations within the url value of the background attribute are not required. Using them shouldn't have anything to do with your issue, and your code doesn't appear to have any errors. The below just has the quotation marks adjusted. 

{% if feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image %}				
<span style="background: url({{ feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image }}) center center no-repeat; background-size: cover;"class="hs-featured-image featured-post-image-1">					
</span>
{% endif %}

Some progress! Have gotten the image URL to show up when looking at the source in dev tools, but it's not displaying.

 

{% if feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image %}				
<span style='background: url("{{ feature_item.post_list_summary_featured_image }}") center center no-repeat; background-size: cover;' class="hs-featured-image featured-post-image-1">					
</span>
{% endif %}

Thanks for the input on the code.

 

I did realize that the image wasn't displaying because there was no content inside <span></span>  When I added "display: block" as well as a min-height and "width: 100%" everything worked fine. 

 

What's built now is a nice card layout with an image on the left that adjusts based on the viewport width (vs. just reducing both width and height). It can be seen here: http://cloudburst.astadia.com/blog

I want to use the featured image of my latest posts for as the background for a hero banner for my blog. I put a hubl module over the listing template.

 

HubL ModuleHubL Module

 

And, I'm trying to use the following code within that module to display the featured image from the lastest post.

{% for post in posts %}
    {% if loop.index = 1 %}
    
        <div class=blog-hero style="background:url('{{ content.featured_image }}') top center no-repeat; background-size: cover;"></div>
        
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Any idea where I'm going wrong?

Your looping for post in posts but your targeting content.featured_image. It shouldbe post.featured_image

Can someone post an update on how to do this under the new CMS theme structure?  Set feature Image as Blog Post header/banner background image.
