How can I give the custom module in the banner position a transparent background?

I've got around this by publishing a Zentools2 module to the banner position, thus creating the background image across the whole banner row. I have some text in the module content which I can't see for some reason though :(

I've changed the text colours for the banner row and I still can't see the module text. I have chosen Image, Intro text and Full text in the drag and drop area of Zentools2.

I don't know if it's related but I've also been trying to change the colour of the menu text to dry grey and that doesn't show either.

Hi

If you don't use the intro text in the zentools2 module and instead use the title

Does this work better?

No difference.

My drag and drop area now looks like the attached screenshot but only the image is showing. I've tried it in a different module position - no difference.

Hi

Try adding

#zentools-272.backstretch-wrapper .backstretch-title {overflow: inherit;}

It is showing now. Thanks. I don't know why it wasn't working in the first place.

Is there a way to align the text vertically centre? I also need to change the size of the text.

Vertically centring is quite hard to do generally with css

Without getting complicated it can be worth trying padding to fake it

Which part of the text are you trying to change as I can see you changed the settings

I've switched the module layout to stack and it looks fine now.

I just need to remove the background overlay colour now. How do I do that?

Hi

this is an option in the zentools2 module css settings

Are you familiar with how to use the custom css inside the zentools2 module itself?

I've figured it out using those settings. Thanks.
