[resolved] Background color of "Latest from the blog" on the home page (4 posts)

    I cannot find any setting to change the background color of the posts box on the home page. Now they are black with black text, when not hovering the boxes. And when hovering, the text becomes white but with the same background color. Is there a way to change the colors so the boxes become readable even when not hovering?

    The site is temporary available here: http://gibbs.grandala.se

    here is a pic of the config: https://www.dropbox.com/s/od2nbqohbuz6l1k/conf.jpg

    Many thanks in advance!

    Post boxes designed to display images, and when you hover over - will display an excerpt of the post. You can set opacity to 1 to make text visible all the time by adding this code to style.css file:

    #from-blog li .mosaic-block a.mosaic-overlay {
    opacity: 1 !important;

    I'm having the same issue, when I set the first page to show "from the blog" I can see the text and image while the page is loading but then it goes black. I tried pasting those three lines into the style.css using the wordpress editor, I pasted them at the bottom, saved everything and refreshed the site but there was no change. I am a newbie at editing CSS so it's entirely likely I did something wrong, but any help would be appreciated.

    With the latest refresh, I can kind-of/sorta see part of the blog posts, but not all and they are still hard to read.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Great, I didn't know that an image was shown, so this did the trick for me :)
    I had to paste it outside all "trappers", i.e. at the very bottom.

    And then I tried to change the background color of the boxes in the same css entry but it seems like there is a darkifying layer over it, right? For example when I set backgroun-color: white !important; it becomes gray. Can one adjust that?

    Many thanks!
