Home Forums CSS Transparent Scrolling Foreground Re: Transparent Scrolling Foreground



The background image effect was achieved by adding: "background:url(images/bg.jpg) top center fixed no-repeat;" to his css. The "fixed" position indicates that the background is static.

The content boxes simply have a transparent background on them along with what seems to be another layer on top that was probably filled-black and had it’s opacity lowered (these two layers are part of the image… no css was used). It was then saved as .png which uses alpha transparency to make it look all shiny, but unfortunately isn’t really supported by ie that well – ie7 is alright at it, but ie6 sucks.

Anyways, that’s what it looks like to me. Hope this helps.
