Transparent body

  • Anonymous


    If this is easily done through a child theme, I am at a loss as to how it would be done, but…

    I would like to have the option of making the sidebar and main body of the page somewhat transparent so you can see the background slightly through areas without text.

    If someone has done this before and has posted please forward the location of instructions, I have not found them.

    Thanks! – and great theme khairul!



    I have the same problem. Could someone help us?

    Thanks for the theme khairul-syahir. It’s GREAT!!!!!!

    Firstly, I wouldn’t recommend it since transparent background really don’t play well with IE7.

    But if you must have it, your best bet would be to create a partially-transparent background square of the colour you want in Photoshop, and save it as a PNG format. For example, if you want a white background that is 30% transparent, create a small (maybe 10px by 10px) square white background with visibility set to 70% in Photoshop. Then create a child theme, upload the image into that child theme, and use CSS to have the particular elements that you want to have semi-transparent background to use the image you’ve created as a repeating background.
