[Resolved] no header color

  • hi there,

    i want the header in this theme to be transparant / no color…
    in the dashboard there is no option to select no color… you have to choose a color but i want the header to be transparant.

    please, how do i do this?

    regards, anne

    You’ll need to set some CSS and probably create an image with the transparency you want. Are you using a Child Theme or do you have the plugins, “Custom CSS” or “Jetpack”?

    You would need to modify the CSS code — preferably in a child theme or custom CSS option or plugin. Does your theme have custom CSS set up?

    If you post a link to your site after you have the above ready to go, someone can help you with the specific code.

    EDIT – posted at the same time — sorry for duplication.

    thanx for the quick reply… i dont know what you mean by ‘child theme’… and i dont have these plugins… but shall i install them?

    Try the Jetpack plugin as an alternative to a Child Theme for CSS changes. Jetpack has a section named Custom CSS which holds and applies your CSS modifications externally, so you don’t edit the theme’s files and compromise your changes when the theme updates.

    i see! thanx for the quick replies…
    here is my site im working on:

    i just installed the custom css plugin…

    In the Custom CSS section of the dashboard, enter this;

    #branding {
     background: transparent;
    }

    If that doesn’t work, try this;

    #branding {
     background: transparent !important;
    }

    it doesnt work… i already wrote this in the original css file… i think the wordpress backend/dashboard overrides this file… here you must choose a color in the theme options…

    It doesn’t look like your Jetpack plugin is using its Custom CSS bit.
    Here’s a guide for using the Custom CSS section of Jetpack http://jetpack.me/support/custom-css/

    i installed jetpack, but as i click on the edit ccs link, i get the following message:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    so i installed ‘custom css’ plugin and this shows an empty field where i can put css… i put the code here again but still i see a white header…

    thanx again for your time

    Your webpage view-source:http://play.annenas-multimedia.nl/ (source) doesn’t have the transparent CSS in it. I don’t think that plugin is working correctly.

    it suddenly works! i guess it was a cache problem?
    thank you for your time 🙂
