Take away color in header

    my blog is: http://crimsoncropper.wordpress.com/

    I am somewhat new to CSS. I want the white color to go away in the header. If I chose the custom header why is that bit of grey and the white there? I want it to be all the light blue color which means I need it to be transparent so you can see that color. Does that make sense? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is crimsoncropper.wordpress.com.



    Here’s the deal. You paid for a CSS upgrade that’s not recommended to those who lack CSS editing experience and cannot work on their own, as their is no Staff support for learning CSS.

    The last remaining volunteer who helps with CSS with not be available until Friday or Saturday at the earliest. He won’t be here for long and others are already waiting in line ahead of you. Your best bet is to crack open some CSS tutorials and locate the information you need.


    Thanks and I appreciate it and I’m going to say this from the bottom of my heart, you don’t have to be rude!” I was asking a question. This is forum for CSS questions! I understand I don’t know a lot, but I design on a more user friendly type blog: blogger AND typepad every day! But my own blog sucks so I took a stab at it! Thanks for being rude about it! Hopefully I can figure out what I need and help someone else!



    there, there, it’s not that serious lol

    custom header options don’t work the same way when you have the css upgrade, so you have to do it on your own.

    to remove the grey and white part try, you add “display :none;”

    #header-overlay {
    z-index:-1; display:none;

    if you’d like to remove the Entries RSS | Comments RSS part, add, “display:none;” to,

    #syndication {
    padding:15px 31px 0; display: none;




    I have not been rude. I have spoken the truth. You can confirm what I said by simply doing a CSS forum search. In these last few months only 1 volunteer called devblog has been helping with CSS. He posted yesterday saying he would not be available until Friday fr Saturday at the earliest. aw1923 who is usually over at blogcatalog socializing has helped you now and that’s a good thing. Best wishes with your CSS editing.


    Thank you Aw1923! I appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge!



    It’s not rude; that someone gives you an answer you don’t want to hear doesn’t make it impolite. There’s no call for condescension, especially as it shows up that you really don’t know who you’re talking to in this case.


    This is the last time I am going to answer on this thread , but no I don’t know who this person is. This person could OWN wordpress. All I was saying is it is rude to say don’t ask for help when this specific forum is FOR tips, help, etc. That is all I am saying. I didn’t ask for how to totally revamp my blog. I asked A question. If that is wrong, this is entire portion of the forum needs to be removed. JMO. Sorry for causing issues.



    Just wondering, where in her reply she told you not to ask for help? Either my reading for comprehension skills are really bad today or I’m blinder than usual…

    Anyway, glad to see your issue’s resolved.
