Type / font drop shadow

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

There is a drop shadow on all the type that is used in Focus2. I can't seem to find where this is controlled. I would like it to be darker and bigger is there a way to do that?

Hi

You need to add this line and adjust the thickness and the rgba values

html {
text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.6);
}

The last value is the alpha value which goes from 0 to 1

with 1 being not transparent and 0 completely transparent

Thanks Paul. Just curious is it better to use rgba instead of hex codes?

As I understand it browsers don't really care (now IE8 is buried in a lead lined box)

Personally, I find rgba harder to read than hex

CSS wise as long as you aren't doing complicated stuff it shouldn't matter either way

I think most programmers still largely use Hex

Hue Saturation Lightness alpha or hsla :)

Hi again,

My preference for hex was personal :)

Although I am used to working with rgb in photoshop

I don't think people use HSLa much - I know we don't but I thought I'd inform you about it

ironion.com/colors-on-the-web-rgb-vs-hex-vs-hsla/

A lot of the options reflect legacy issues e.g IE8
