I hear you.
I get that you can’t keep helping to customize the site and I have witnessed a gradual movement in X-theme support to be more clarified in what support helps with and what is outside the scope. Yet since we’re in this conversation to begin with, when I asked X-theme support in the past they were very helpful with the CSS. I’m assuming that it’s just too much for support to do all of that for the users and will take more responsibility for the CSS as my publishing schedule permits.
That being said, i’ve still got the issue and we’re *in it * right now, so I kindly ask to get this dialed so I can move forward.
I have tried changing the stack from Ethos to Integrity and see what you mean about the white container and the background on standard posts. Since I am in this crossroads of publishing and launching as well as wishing to add a beautiful background visual within Ethos on standard posts and do not yet understand CSS properly, I would very much appreciate clearing out this particular issue.
There are actually two questions in here that i’m resolving and they feel related.
One - The ‘1st page’ you mentioned in your first comments shows up with the semi-transparent background on mobile (iPad) on Chrome. If it’s not displaying properly on Chrome on desktop, i’d like to know why. Safari doesn’t seem to have the issue on either platform.
What i’m asking is both the color of the sidebar and the container around the post writing. I’m wanting to create that transparency in the sidebar container, and in the main blog post container, on a CSS level, to make it either white (while showing the background around it), or 75% opacity, to show a little of the background through.
Could this be explained please? Within Ethos? Basically, i’m wanting to have a background with the stadard post stil being legible. Right now, in standard posts, it removes the color of the post container (if i’m naming it correctly) and makes it transparent, which leaves it illegible. I realize I must change the color of the post container and the sidebar and would like to know how to do this as it’s integral to the use of backgrounds behind my posts. Even if I shifted this to standard ‘white’ or semi-transparent for all posts it would make the site way more visually consistent. Thank you for understanding.
