Home Forums CSS [Solved] Making "holes" in background Reply To: [Solved] Making "holes" in background


Basically…you can’t do this with CSS as the ‘holes’ would individual elements within a ‘white’ parent’ If the child elements have no background the parent bg will show through.

Unfortunately, in general, styling a child element will not affect the styling of the parent. CSS just doesn’t work that way.

A PNG bg image (or images)would be the best option but the implementation will depend on your exact requirements.
