There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes.

Transparent Center Area

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently trying to figure out how to get the center area of my page to have a slight transparency so the background image will show through, I don't want the header or footer to be transparent. Any ideas on how to accomplish this? I can make the whole page transparent but that's no help unfortunately. I'm trying to find out the right html tag so I can put it in "add html/css inserts" You can see my site at: campgilwell.ca

Kindest Regards

Have you tried the rgba syntax for opacity of background color?

You might find that the easiest way is to set the whole page to transparent, then setting a solid color for the header/footer.

if you add
HTML Code:
opacity: 0.4;
to ATO->Style & edit CENTER COLUM->Center column style - the background will show thru
BUT that will cause all it's children to have the same opacity as well. (the posts).
You could set the center column background-color transparent then style the post container opaque (ATO->Style POSTS & PAGES->POST Container) and see if that satisfies your needs - but again everything contained in the post container will be semi-transparent too.
