Solved Category & Forum Thread Transparency

Post by VStrah on June 5th 2014, 3:44 am

Hi there,

I've seen many support forums here with help on making a forum's background appear translucent or transparent. I am sort of seeking the same help however my situation seems different from the solutions given to other people's problem.

I have a forum and I am trying to have the overall look of the categories, forums and threads within them to be transparent without having the font color fade away with it. As mentioned above, when I tried other people's solutions, the font, buttons, ranks, etc. all went transparent to the point where you could barely read anything. I strictly want the backgrounds of the categories, forums, threads, posts, etc. to be transparent. I believe I am using a phpbb2 forum (may be 3 but I don't think that should matter much?)

Does this option/CSS exist somewhere?

Thanks.

Is your text white? If it is, then you need to change the color of the whole forum's background or the text color.

The text is white. Do you mean the background of the entire website itself (as in the black image with the neon swipes?) or do you mean the background with the various categories and topics?

Why do I have to change one or the other? Essentially, I just want the background with the various categories and topics to be translucent/transparent.

The forum's background is white. White background + white text = can not see text

Ok. For some reason my browser did not let the image load the first time.

Could you let guests see your whole forum?

Hello VStrah,

You're wanting to remove the background color from basic elements like categories, correct ?

If so try the following.
Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet

Paste the code below and submit :
Code:
.forumline, .forumline * {
  background-color:none;
}

Yes that is what I would like to do.

I tried the code and unfortunately I did not see anything change.

Well, your wrapper background would be all you see if you set their background colors to none.

See how this fairs :
Code:
.forumline, .forumline td, .forumline tr {
  background-color:#f00;
}

You can replace #f00 with the none keyword to remove the background.

Ok the code didn't work at first but I tried a few other things and got it working the way I had originally intended.

Is there a way to make it translucent rather than fully transparent? As in have a little bit of a shade on the forum/category backgrounds.

You can use RGBA to make a transparent color. See the CSS below :
Code:
.forumline, .forumline td, .forumline tr { background-color:none; }
.forumline { background-color:rgba(0,0,0, 0.3); }
