    Sorry for my question, i use mini content area with minimal skin in “Flashlight”, i would like to change the width of this area and i wish to khow if is it possible to make it transparent? Thank’s a lot




    you can change the width + opacity with following code – I’d add it to css/custom.css:

    .entry-mini {
    opacity: 0.5;
    width: 500px;

    You can change the values :)


    That’s very neat. But it makes the text transparent as well!


    Thank’s a lot



    Yes – you can use a semi transparent png if you’d like to avoid transparent text/content.


    Hi, is there any way to provide the code to change the mini content into semi-transparent using a png as background, but keeping the text and info inside 100% visible?


    Have a look at this thread: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -background-of-sidebar


    I have tried changing all the .entry-mini, .box etc in the css, even tried creating a new template with no luck.

    My client is really asking for a transparent front page box, I could really need the help here!


    Please modify the css and post a link.


    Hello, I also wanted to change the background color.

    In the Admin under Custom CSS I added this.

    .entry-mini {

    transparent url(../images/skin-minimal/bg-trans.png) repeat 0 0;


    Could you maybe give me advice what I am doing wrong?

    I use the same transparant image as in the left menu.

    Best Regards,

    Peter van der Zee


    You need to use:

    .entry-mini {
    background: transparent url(../images/skin-minimal/bg-trans.png) repeat 0 0;



    Hello Dude,

    I pasted the code in the Quick CSS field. It did not work out for me however.

    Do you maybe know how come? You can see the site on http://www.topsportcamera.nl.

    Hope that would help.

    To make the background transparant try this instead of what Dude suggested:

    .entry-mini .box{background:none !important;}


    .entry-mini .box{transparent url(../images/skin-minimal/bg-trans.png) repeat 0 0;}


    Hi guys,

    I am sorry, it does not seem to work, I also try variations like this one:

    .entry-mini .box {

    background: transparent url(../images/skin-minimal/bg-trans.png) repeat 0 0 !important;


    Maybe I can give someone access to the site?

    Or another suggestions is always welcome.

    I am pretty sure that

    .entry-mini .box has to be used.

    Did you upload a semi-transparent background image? You need to place it in the flashlight/images/skin-minimal/ folder and call it bg-trans.png. You can create a semi transparent image with Photoshop or Gimp.


    Hey Dude it worked! Through Firebug I tried to check the image but he returned: Page not Found.

    The only thing I had to do was changing the link URL to: /wp-content/themes/huizenga/images/skin-minimal/transparant.png

    Thanks for the great help. :-D
