transparent background

  • canismajor


    is there a way to make the background of a page, post, sidebar or other item transparent so you can see through to the site background?

    that is, i would like the text on a page to appear to be floating on top of the background image rather than on a solid color section on top of the background



    Add this to custom CSS

    #container, #content, #content-main, #sidebar, .entry {
    background: none !important;

    Sent from mobile. Add elements if I’ve left any.



    very nice! i’ll still need to add:



    menu bar

    and (less obvious how to do):


    backgrounds of posts and page text

    fyi the test site is at:

    kind thanks

    Invest some time to learn about basic CSS coding, you’ll save a lot of time and frustration later on.

    Many thanks for your continued help!

    I have indeed immersed myself in CSS and WordPress these past 24 hours and am now able to solve many of these questions myself.

    One area where I still have a problem is eliminating borders in widgets, pages, footer and header.

    I have tried

    #container, #content, #content-main, #sidebar, #header, #top-bar, #footer, #sidebar1, #sidebar2 .entry {
    border: none !important;
    box-shadow: none !important;

    but the borders remain. My goal is to have all text ‘float’ on the main Graphene background. I have done this mostly successfully by eliminating the backgrounds, but the side borders and outlines remain, leaving 2 vertical stripes on the page (1 left and 1 right).



    It occurred to me that maybe those borders I’m having trouble eliminating are actually images. I haven’t been able to find any graphics substituting for outlines, but maybe they are buried somewhere?

    Try installing the Firebug addon for Firefox (or Dragonfly for Opera). It will make it easy to find out what classes you need to target.
