Topic: Background transparency/opacity.

Hi folks,

I'd like to have a transparent background, but I don't want my images to be transparent, too...

Is this possible?

Regards,

fooness

Hey,

thanks for the reply.

I tried that, but then my images and thumbnails, the navigation arrows and also the frame are transparent, too. I just want the real background, in the defaults the '222222', to be transparent.

wmode transparent should only effect your background, please post a link to your gallery page if you continue to have trouble.

Heya,

ok, it seems the problem is somewhere else. The div in which simpleviewer is embedded has "opacity:0.70".

I wonder if there's a way how it wouldn't affect simpleviewer.

To not have the opacity on the div effect SimpleViewer either remove the opacity or move SimpleViewer to another div.

Ok great, thanks.

Re: Background transparency/opacity.

I'm having the same issue, I want to either set the background as transparent or at least change the background to a jpg, but I've followed all the info on the help site, and set the whole thing into a html doc of it's own so there is NO external influence from css and the like, and yet opacity change makes the whole thing dissappear, and the background won;t chnage if I try just regular jpg.

I can't get it to put a watermark in either...

:S

If I take the amendments out it works again...

@Fia
Rather than use CSS 'opacity' use http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … ml#embed_6 instead.
Any background set via CSS will then shine through, eg:

body {
  background: #00ff00 url('background.jpg') no-repeat fixed center;
}

The watermark options require SimpleViewer Pro.  If using the Standard version of SimpleViewer, you could put a watermark on your images with an image manipulation program before feeding them to SimpleViewer.

Re: Background transparency/opacity.

Thanks, I'll give that go. Though I think it's more to do with the fact I'm using the free version... when searching for help on here it doesn't specify which version the help is about once you locate it... my bad.

Trying to take a short cut and avoid coding a viewer by getting a freebie that does what I want. I'll just stop being lazy wink
