Changing header background to transparent in Hemingway

    Hi there,

    I am interested in changing the floating header background color in the Hemingway theme from the dark gray it is now to transparent, so the text of the blog and its tagline will float in the header image.

    I have isolated this part of the code:

    .site-branding {
    /* background: #FD0000; */
    display: inline-block;
    padding: 1.7em;

    But as I attempt to play around with this in the CSS customization feature, no dice. Any idea what’s up?

    The blog I need help with is



    Your site is protected/private, so I’m not able to see exactly what’s going on, but from looking at the Hemingway Rewritten theme, adding this to your CSS should work:

    .site-branding {
       background: transparent;

    Hope this helps!


    You are a wizard. Or I am just pretty dull. Or, both.

    Either way: THANKS.



    haha. You’re welcome :)
