main menu background colour

Hi All,

Have just renewed subscription to finish off wifes website - im no guru at this but slowly getting it finished.

What i would like is some pointers on how to make the background on the main menu items appear that dark transparent like in the dropdown menus. This background is to go the full width of the screen not just the main module areas if that makes sense.

can post website if you like to show what i mean.

when you scroll down a page - say in the news section, you see a transparent line appear below the menu that does exactly what i am after ! although i want this all the time the full width of the screen so that the menu looks good on the white background pictures that may appear.

thankyou for the quick reply

Looking at the site you seem to have a 404 for the image used in this area

#navwrap.affix {
background: url(../images/overlay/blackOverlay.png);
width: 100%;
}

www.salon13.com.au/templates/grid3/css/themes/images/overlay/blackOverlay.png 404 (Not Found)

Do you have the image file in the template folder as above?

Cheers

interesting that \images directory wasnt there ... found it and duplicated it in that position.

great when scrolling down is perfect but would like that exact look when you are scrolled all the way up the top if that makes sense.

so when you first load the page i would like that full width background displayed - prefer it to be a dark transparent and not full blockout but can live with the full blockout.

On another note - i am super impressed with the response. Am speaking with brother about paying for full support $500 in near future !

thankyou very much again !!

not quite following about the full width background bit

Do you mean the default menu container to be that colour?

that number 11 is amazing :)

Annoying but amazing :)

This would require some tweaking but this should get you started

#bgpixel {background: #000;height: 60px;}

#logowrap {margin-top: 70px;}

body #navwrap {margin-top: 20px;}

Cheers
