Hi there
i'm new to mybb and i have installed it locally.
I want to ask how to make some areas of my forum with background transparent
I have the default theme.

I have an image named back10.jpg in images folder and i set it as background.

In the attached file you can see which areas i want to make transparent background . They are marked with
a red asterisk.

Can you propose me any theme which is easy to customize colors and transparency via properties ?

Please help

Thanks for your time
See this explanation of transparency (CSS):

https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_...arency.asp

In the forumbit_depth1_cat template you can find 

<td class="thead{$expthead}" colspan="5">

and replace it with:

<td class="thead{$expthead}" colspan="5" style="opacity:0">

I found forumbit_depth1_cat with this value : <td class="tcat" colspan="6"><strong>&raquo;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="{$forum_url}">{$forum['name']}</a></strong><br /><span class="smalltext">{$forum['description']}</span></td></tr>{$sub_forums}

and i changed it to : <td class="tcat" colspan="6" style="opacity:0"><strong>&raquo;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="{$forum_url}">{$forum['name']}</a></strong><br /><span class="smalltext">{$forum['description']}</span></td></tr>{$sub_forums}

but it didn't work.
Can you post a link to your site?

I had it locally. You can see the attached picture

Finally i managed to make them transparent using this MyBB 1.4 CSS Guide made by Darren.
This Guide was just what i was searching for
Thanks for your time and also many thanks to Darren for the Guide.
