Intro area will not go transparent.

Permalink
Hello all,
I have a very annoying thing happening on my homepage. The intro area stays " white " whatever I do. I may have missed something but I don't think so. I need it to be transparent.
Anybody had this problem ?

Thanks for any response.

The white is probably being set by a CSS rule higher up the food chain (eg, body). You can find out where it's coming from using a browser's developer tools.

Hi
Thanks for the reply but I've painstakingly looked through all the CSS and no colour has been set. I originally ( 6 months ago ) set this to white but now I can't seem to remove it even though the CSS shows " no colour ".

Read the emails I have sent you!
EDIT.. The transparent background is working on the test site I setup for you, but since I have had no response from you to my PM's, Post and emails, I will be taking that site down today!

Hi
I have only just got to my emails of which there are hundreds for yesterday. The client has sent me all the emails from the site. They do not allow me access to the emails. Even though I have access to the reports.
I'm sorry if you think I am mucking you about, but I have a lot of other things to do that are also important.
The site has been taken down ?
I will stay online rest of day.
Thanks

Hi
BTW I replied to your PMs immediately and carried out your request.
Regards.

I'll bet you haven't found ALL of the relevant CSS. Most of it comes from deep within the bowels of c5 itself. This is why I suggested using a browser's developer tools: they can reveal the source of whatever CSS rule is in effect, whether it's yours or not.

@Gondwana that particular styling is pulled from the database so he won't find it in a css file.

Agreed. But I'm urging the use of browser developer tools rather than sifting through CSS files (or LESS or SASS or database).

As I'm fairly new to this, it has been good practice to find where everything is situated.
Thanks anyway.

@tjbphoto Very good point; I retract any snarkiness! That's a great way to learn.
