I am working on the style for my phpbb3 forums and I am trying to make some parts of the forum transparent using css is there such thing as a transparent color html color code?

THanks

For CSS backgrounds, "transparent" is the default value. It can also be used on border-color. Even though you can't currently use it for foreground color (like text) its part of CSS3: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/#transparent (there are ways to do it in today's MSIE browsers with Filters, though, but lack of anti-aliasing makes it look ugly in smaller font sizes).

There is also the "opacity" property: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/#transparency and http://www.quirksmode.org/css/opacity.html for the MSIE workaround.

Let me go into more detail because after looking over your links it sounds way more complex than it really is.

I have a forum I am tyring to edit a style for.

It was pro silver the default style by phpbb.

there is some blue #CADCEB that I am trying to make go away. I want to be able to see all the way though it so that its 100% transparent.

If its really that complex don't worrie about trying to explain i'm also posting on the phpbb forum so maybe someone there that has done it before can give me some advice. Its my first time trying to edit this part of a style so I really don't know what i'm doing.

So use 'transparent'. But what do you expect to see? "All the way through" makes me think of those radar vision glasses. They don't work. tongue.gif

Thanks so much Pandy your rock!

I am trying it but I must be putting my code in wrong.

do you see what the problem is?

}

.navbar {
background-color: 'transparent';
}

What do you expect to see through it?

Do you want only the background or both background and foreground to be transparent?

Can you upload separate files with FP, files that aren't part of a project or something? Otherwise, just use a standalone FTP program. Less hassle, I should think.

FileZilla is good and free.
