I understand you can change a page or the site to a transparent background.  What if I want to change the color or make a container transparent?   Is there code to achieve that?   I am trying to develop a cleaner division on my pages to separate content and I think this will definitely help.

You can certainly do that. Now you would also have to have the page background transparent if you want to see the background image of the site. For the container though, first give the container a css class name. In my example, I used test. Once you do that in the head code, you can add in code something like this

<style> .test {
background-color: blue;}
</style>

Can you do this for only one container in a multi-container layout?
ie. Only the smaller one on the right in your 2 pane example?

You certainly could. However, you would need to target the column and not the container since the container is the entire horizontal piece called the layout container. Where this gets harder, is that depending on the width of the column (based on the selection in the edit container window) the CSS you would need to enter would vary.

Rob,

I wanted to do this for something like Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and change a container (or a few) to pink.  But I didn't follow how you were able to access the head code?

You may not have access turned on on your organization's website. Private message me and I can get it turned on.

I would be interested in being able to do this, but I cannot access the CSS for my site.

Send me a PM with your site's URL and I will get your site's CSS access turned on.

Unfortunately, the answer it depends. Depending on how your page is configured and and the containers and number of columns it would change. You are getting into pretty complex skills for CSS and I would recommend getting an expert to help do these type of customizations. I'm just a CSS dabbler.
