    Hi! Great theme and amazing forum with help topics.

    I was looking to remove the color box behind navigations, main copy and footer within my child's theme. I want to do this because I am using a fill window images which is dark colors and want white text to overlay it. I don't want a white box in between the text and background image.

    Any direction on how to remove this site-wide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    This topic should cover it, also you may try to search more on Twenty Twelve support forum, because main site structure and code is almost the same:

    Thank you. I searched on there and found this bit of code to put into my child's theme and it worked:

    #page.hfeed {
    background: transparent;

    But that did not remove the white background from the footer. Would this also have to be some sort of code I need to put in my CSS or would this be something in the footer.php file?

    Thank you so much for all your continued help!

    You could try to replace #page.hfeed with footer

    Thank you Tomas. That didn't work but lead me to the solution! The following code placed into my child's theme did work for anyone interested to do the same:

    footer#colophon {
    background: transparent;

    I hope that you properly closed both statements, because they should end with } like this:

    footer#colophon {
    background: transparent;
    }
