    Thanks for the suggestion. I will release an option to set the background color to transparent in the in the next update of the plugin.

    Hi Stefan,

    I’m dealing with the same problem, is there a way around the problem through code?

    Hi,

    I’m releasing version 2.2.8 within the next hour. Leaving the ‘Background color’ field empty will make the text slides transparent.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    I have just updated my plugin and I’m having the same problem. How would I fix this? (Scrolling text slides – I have left the background colours blanks but they still appear white)

    It appears your slides are transparent, have you been able to resolve the problem?

    I’d suggest taking the slideshow out of the ‘<h3>‘ and ‘<span>‘ elements, though. It’s invalid HTML, which causes big empty spaces to show in Internet Explorer.

    You can always change the font size using a custom stylesheet for the slideshow. You can read how to create one in the FAQ section.

    hi, plugin is great! but I have a problem and I didn’t find any solution… I would like to have a half-transparent background, now I can use just HEX (full color) or transparent (no color). I need to use RGBA instead HEX.. It is possible? to put for example ‘rgba(0,0,0,0.5)’ where I have ‘#000’ ?

    EDIT: I noticed in source code, the HEX is convert to RGB (style=”rgb(0,0,0)”), not rgba 🙁

    Hi,

    RGBA colors do not work in all browsers, I believe. If you want to set an element to be transparent, you can use this tutorial on css-trick.com.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    support in Mozilla FireFox, Opera, IE9,10, Chrome, Safari – that is 99% users I believe 🙂
    I’ll figure out something.

    Anyway, thanks for answer 🙂

    EDIT: opacity makes background and everything (in that DIV) also transparent, I think only way is rgba.

    You’re right, it does make everything inside element transparent as well. Another solution would be to use a transparent backround image.

    png file? image 1×1 pixel and repeat… I didn’t see that option, just full image with text-description (I’ll check it tomorrow, now I’m using Slideshow only for text).

    Sorry for my English, propably Im making a lot of mistakes..

    Yes. If you’re in the custom style editor trying to set a transparent backround on the description boxes, for instance, you could make the ‘background‘ CSS rule look something like this:

    background: url('URLToTransparentBackground.png') repeat;
