Making new posts, header image background color, etc transparent

    I have downloaded, installed and begun to customize the inspiration laboratory theme for my blog. I have figured out how to edit the CSS code to make the middle main section color match the background color of the border image (go me!). I have also been able to make the background of my installed widgets transparent. However, I cannot figure out how to make the background color of everything else transparent, i.e., I don’t want to see the white behind the header image or any of the other inserted attributes (plog posts, menu labels, etc). Please tell me that I can make these transparent as well?!?! Thanks in advance for the help.

    The blog I need help with is




    I think I already answered this on Creative Market, but for other users who might have the same question, I’ll also reply here.

    The yellow accent color can be changed with just CSS, but changing the white background requires editing the image files (in the /images directory). I would make a back-up of the theme files before you do this, just to be safe!

    Change any white areas in the image files to your desired background color using Photoshop or a similar program, then add this code using the Jetpack Custom CSS plugin (

    .site {
       background-color: #000; /* Your desired background color hex code here */

    In short, it’s possible with some advanced modification, but not a quick fix.
