Theme Edits - Transparency?

  1. Hey all,

    New to the site and I LOVE it!

    I'm currently using the Twenty Ten theme and it looks like it's what I want to stick with - I just feel like I don't have the chance to edit as much as I'd like to (I'm not familiar with CSS).

    I added a background to my page, and I'd like my actual blog's background to be transparent so you could see the page background behind upcoming posts, text etc.

    Is there any way to make this happen?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Just read the CSS forum guidelines. I'm a bit confused - themes can not be edited, but you ARE allowed to change the CSS?

  3. That is correct. The underlying code can not be modified but you can load your own CSS styles on top or instead of the original theme's style rules. If you want the post area background to be the same grey colour as the body background you will need to pay for the CSS upgrade and use this declaration in the code area:

    #wrapper {background-color:#f1f1f1;}

  4. The reason we cannot edit the themes is this is a multi-user platform which means we all share the same underlying theme and wordpress files. If you were allowed to change the theme files, it would change it for everyone.
