  • Sure is! You just have to change the background to rgba(0,0,0,0) (rgba = red,green, blue, alpha)

    The widgets also have a border and shadow, if you wanted those removed as well, the css you need would look like

    .widget {
        background: rgba(0,0,0,0);
        border: none;
        box-shadow: none;

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you so much.
    Nothing happen when i put this css in editor, however the site just disappear.

    Which css i have to remove and replace with the above one?

    As i mentioned i am working on child theme, i have notice CSS Stylesheet in editor is something like:

    Theme Name: Magazine Basic Child 01
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child 01 theme for the Magazine Basic theme
    Author: <a href="" title="Visit author homepage">c.bavota</a>
    Author URI:
    Template: magazine-basic
    Version: 3.0.4
    /* Generated by Orbisius Child Theme Creator ( on Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:35:34 +0000 */ 
    @import url('../magazine-basic/style.css');

    I do not see whole big list of CSS in child theme. Did I do anything wrong while making child theme that i am not seeing stylesheet?

    you’re supposed to add only the customized code in the child theme’s style.css so to answer the question. Yes, it is supposed to be that short.

    orbisius is right, it is that short.

    You shouldn’t have to remove/replace anything, you can just add the the css from above into that stylesheet. Where did you add it before when you said the site disappeared?

    I added before the orbisius child theme information.
    Was i supposed to add after that ?

    I tried once again and this time whole layout of the site was change, the header was gone, side bar as well, and whole text just showed up in white background.

    orbisius, thanks for the reply

    What is this now!

    I have added the code really in the end, and its works, this time.
    But when I did it first time daybefore yesterday, nothing happend and the site was just disappear.

    Same thing I did it now, and both sidebar went to transparent. Big thanks to you SomewhatRounded!!

    You need to add your customized styles after this line.
    @import url(‘../magazine-basic/style.css’);

    Yes Orbisius i did it! first day it did not work, but right now its works.


    Is there custom CSS stylesheet codign avaliable for this theme?
    Would like to do some more changes, and I have no knowledge of CSS. If there is some detail at least i could “copy past” without giving you guys much trouble.

    You guys are awesome.
