Semi Transparent Module Body

Hello, 

I have read various discussions about adding a semi-transparent background to the body of a site while allowing the text and other content to still be fully visible, but I can't get it to work on my site. 

I have added opacity css to the .xg_theme #xg_body and it makes the whole page semi transparent 

I added the same code to the .xg_theme .xg_module and it makes the whole module and content within it transparent. 

Please advise on how to create a semi transparent black background for my page that allows the content in the modules to still be fully visible. Similar to this site -  http://themeforest.net/item/clubber-events-music-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3427687 

Your help would be very appreciated! 

Thanks! 

My site is still under construction - www.midwestmusik.com

  • Try to set this instead:

    #xg.xg_widget_main.xg_widget_main_index.xg_widget_main_index_index

  • have you tried #xg_body {

    im almost doing that right now.... http://yubasutterconnect.com

  • Hey everyone thanks for your examples - I tried them all - what I ended up doing is using Photo shop to create an image that appears transparent by having the background layer source be the image I use in my website background then add another layer, a black (or any color you want) layer on top set to .3 opacity so that you see the background through it. When you save it as a png and upload it as the image for the main content, setting the modules to transparent - the background has a black shade over the background giving it the semi-transparent look I wanted. Thanks for your help! 

    • that is exactly the approach I've used recently:

  • Check out our site > http://uk-christians.net

    We've made the modules' backgrounds semi-transparent by using an Adobe Fireworks image

  • The way it should be done is using a RGBA color code with the occupancy added at the end. To make the color more pronounced or more transparent just raise or lower the number 0.43 at the end of the code. Here's the code.

    #xg_body{
     background-color: rgba(000, 000, 000, 0.43)!important;}

    • Thanks George, I'll try this out.

      • You're welcome Alexander
        If you want it just for the modules Like on your site here's the code for that. :-)
        .xg_module{
            background-color: rgba(000, 000, 000, 0.43)!important;}

        • Thanks again.. I'll try them out tomorrow..!
