  2. Is it possible to put a background image with very light opacity within the post and not just on the side of the post?

  4. Hallo to you, that was so easy, and I have enjoyed the video, easy to follow and your blog is so resourceful too. I’m nonetheless stuck on how to make the upper content layer be transparent so that the texts lie on the custom background image. I’m using MH Magazine lite theme, and SiteOrigin CSS plug in.
    How may I kindly go about that? .mh-header, .mh-wrapper { background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8); } I just don’t know how to work around it. Really hope to hear from you and truly I appreciate wpbeginner, big big visitor and follower.
