Making the logo or any block transparent?October 11, 2010 @ 8:28am
I am trying to make my Logo block transparent so that my Logo will appear over my pages background image. Is that possible?

It should be possible, depending on the template and the exact block position (logo, top full, or top banner could all be used for a logo). Generally it would involve locating the bgcolor="#whatever" for the table cell of that block and removing it so the background shows through.

Post the URL or a screenshot here or email to and let me know which template.

Try removing bgcolor="#9e9e9e" from line 308 in your template.php and see if that does anything for you.

I tried that before I posted and it makes the background black...

Also if I change the location to "TOP BANNER" it does not show up at all

Any other suggestions.

Ah yes there are other table backgrounds below the grey one, sorry about that. How about making line 298 look like the code below and setting that block to Top Banner, does that do anything useful?


Code

<div align="center"><br>'.$TemplateTags['topbannerblocks'].'

Setting Left Block to transparentOctober 29, 2010 @ 9:48am
I see the process for the Top Banner but what about doing this for other blocks like the left block. Same template, innovation-mono.


why sleep when I can work...

I'm not sure it's going to work out as you have in mind. It's roughly the same idea just other table cells also need the background removed, and you're going to need to re-work some of the others to compensate. 302, 304, 320 are going to need the bgcolor removed, but then you're going to need to build those back in other places to re-create the borders and backgrounds.
