background help

Hey all,

I recently started using a new stream and have decided to use an embeddable theme. I like the looks of everything but i would really like to change the background of the container to be a transparent one so it blends better with my site. I started by trying something simple in hardcore mode and changing the background from color to transparent but it keeps switching it back to the color i had chosen originally even if i apply or save my changes. Any one have a simple solution for this? Thanks for any help!

Are you hitting apply then hitting save in the up right?:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

More background help needed :D
I don't know about making it transparent... I'm still trying to change the color. It seems that the whole background image has to be deleted and replaced?

html {
background: #2f464e url(http://static.coffeecup.com/images/sdri … cey/bg.png) repeat-x;


Do the images have to come from CC, or can I use my own image (and where do I store it?)?
And... would that image have to be deleted if one wanted to make the background transparent?

You could alter the url to a transparent gif or png image in your storage folder on S-Drive.

I finally found some time to play around with this and was able to figure it out. Several guesses later i came up with this, not sure if its right but it works. :D

#sdrive-stream-container {
margin:20px;
padding:30px 20px 0 10px;
text-align:left;
width:640px; /* @S-Drive name:Width; min:400; max:1024;*/
background-none; /* @S-Drive name:Background Color; */

I hope you'll post a link (or a screen shot) so we can see the results :D
