Opacity of background picture of startpage in sydney theme


Many thanks for the great theme and your support here.
I still found solutions to some questions by using this support forum.

Now i want to make the background picture transparent, so that the text in front of it is perfectly visible.
Is it possible by using CSS ?



Hello Mike,

I am happy to hear you got this support forum helpful to you.

In which element/section that background picture can be seen at? Please be more specific, so I can assist you in better way. If possible, please share a link to your site here.


Hi Kharis,

thx for your quick reaction.

I mean that background picutre in the section below the header slider till the footer area (Laptop and Cup etc).

Best wishes!

Hello there,

Try adding this CSS code to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.

    .slide-item:after {
      display: none;


HI Kharis,

thank you.

This is just changing the slider item.

I was searching for a solution to make the background of the main page (PC - not mobile devices) transparent.

Any idea?


Found a part-solouting with a box layer behind the contet.
But this is just shown on PC and not on mobile devices.

How do i need to change the CSS?


I think i got it.

I use as follwos:

#main {
background: rgba(255, 255, 255,
padding: 35px;
