    Bootstrap Grid - An option to remove container class for a full width row

    Hi All,

    I'm implementing a grid in a new umbraco site and using Bootstrap 3. The template used (within Views-Partials-Grid) seems to ALWAYS add the container class.

    <div class="container">

    as you may know this is to contain the content within a certain width even if the window width is larger.

    I'm wanting to add a background image that covers the full width of the row (not to be contained), and then the content sitting over the background but within the container class. I can add the container class with the content thats not the problem, but I'm looking for a way to stop the container class being added (by the template) EVERY time a row is added, perhaps an option to have a truly 'full width' row - which does not follow the usual code in the normal bootstrap3.cshtml template.

    Any ideas anyone, I've spent hours trying to find an answer and I'm struggling.

    I always set the background in the row settings. That way the background image is placed on the div around the container.

    In other cases I use classes set on the row that overwrite the default max with of the container or whatever property I want to overwrite.

    Thanks for coming back to me Frans, I've ended up using the class set on the row as the solution. I was hoping there was some slick option rather than setting an override but never mind. Its working!
