Is there any way to make the the blog semi-transparent? The background image would be easier to comprehend if it was seen more.

I've looked at the demo with Firebug and tried to figure out a way to do what you are asking.  Unfortunately, I am not a designer and only know enough CSS to make the minor adjustments necessary each month when I convert the Joomla releases to run on the WP version of the framework.

There is probably a way to adjust the transparency or opacity, but it's beyond my knowledge.  Technically that is outside what support covers, but I'll pass your request to one of the designers and see if they have any suggestions.

I've got a response, hopefully this will do what you want:

Quote

First set the background to transparent:

Code:
#s5_top_row2_area_inner, #s5_top_row3_area_inner, #s5_center_area_inner, #s5_bottom_row1_area_inner, #s5_bottom_row2_area_inner {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
}

And then apply the transparent image:

Code:
#s5_center_area_inner{
    background: url("../images/s5_top_row1.png") repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);
}

I couldn't find the code in the Dashboard > Appearance > Editor for any of those files.

You can add that CSS to the style.css file at the end; you should be able to get to the style.css file in the admin, but the WP file editor can break things, it's much better to edit through FTP.


I recommend FileZilla for FTP access and Notepad++ for file editing.
