Transparent Background Tutorial

Recommended Posts

- Download this file: http://www.bryanhadaway.com/testing/trans.zip - something I created and use personally. - Unzip it and upload trans.php to your site, not sure if the Media upload will allow it or if you'll have to use FTP. - However you upload it, note the URL. - Now use the following CSS (changing the URL to the actual) `.whatever{background:url(http://www.yourwebsite.com/trans.php?color=FFFFFF&trans=50)}` of course leaving `?color=FFFFFF&trans=50` on the end. As you can see you can adjust the color and transparent level, you can use this technique over and over for anything else too. - Add to Custom Code > Custom CSS. Thanks, Bryan

Hi Bryan I tried to do this, but it's not working. The "whatever" I have to type .thecarousel correct? Thanks, Adam B

You have to make sure that there is nothing else in the way, solid colors or images of other containing divs. Also, you'll never know if you set a transparent image correctly unless of course there is something behind to reference. I'm assuming you're using Firebug: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/changing-colors-fonts and are at least somewhat familiar with CSS?: http://www.w3schools.com/css/ Thanks, Bryan
