    Hi all. As so many people have asked this question, i've got the principle in what needs to be done but I can find the right place in my style.css.

    This topic shows what i want to do:

    The website i'm working on is this - as you can see i have a background but I want the text background to be transparent.

    I'm using the Twenty Eleven theme, if needed I can post the style.css code. Can somebody please advice which bits I need to alter.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    First, one should not edit the twentyeleven theme, but instead create a Child Theme. Once created, add this to your Child Theme stylesheet:

    #page, #site-generator {
    background-color: transparent;

    Creating a child theme allows for easy customization of the site and also allows a theme update to occur without affecting your customization

    hi guys, sorry for the delay in replying. OK i'll create a child theme. It would make sense actually!

    I'll give this ago and submit another question if i get stuck. But for now i'll mark this as closed.
