    I want to make the nav bar background transparent and also the background to the body transparent but not the text. I am using twenty eleven and editing the css stylesheet in a child theme. I have found code online to change this but when I enter it into the stylesheet of my child theme and update it, nothing changes? I am new to wordpress so please give me a simple answer so please make it simple? my website is http://www.soul-fire.co.uk. any help will be much appreciated!

    Hi - I'm having the same problem. I'm using a child theme with twenty eleven dark (using "One-Click Child Theme" plugin) but every time WordPress updates it forces me to go back and update the dark.css in the parent theme in order to make my nav bar background transparent again. I have done this successfully through a few updates, but now I am a little confused as to what code I changed in the past and I'm left with this black bar above my page menu. Can anyone please tell what I'm doing wrong here? And how to fix the dark.css so I don't have to keep updating the code everytime WP updates? It always leaves me with this half a nav bar.

    should actually not happen if you properly install and use a child theme.

    what edits do you make where to get the transparency?

    possibly try to work with a custom css plugin which should add the styles after all other stylesheets; http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=custom+css
