    Hello GP-Support !

    Please see my off-canvas menu on
    http://www.understand-culture.com
    and/or on
    http://www.johnottomagee.com

    Is it possible to make the background
    of the menu translucent (if that is the
    right term)?

    In the sense that you can still see the
    site-page behind the menu.

    Thanks.

    John

    Hi there,

    try adding this CSS:

    div.slideout-overlay {
        left: 264px;
    }
    #generate-slideout-menu.main-navigation {
        background-color: transparent;
    }
    #generate-slideout-menu:before {
        content: '';
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        right: 0;
        bottom: 0;
        left: 0;
        background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.85);
        backdrop-filter: blur(3px);
        -webkit-backdrop-filter: blur(3px);
    }

    It will make the background transparent, and add a little blur ( where supported ) to the content behind the off canvas.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for the very fast response time.

    I added the code above to Simple Custom CSS,
    but no change.

    Do I need to make some kind of
    change or tick something off in the
    off-camvas menu?

    Yes, it is does work, David.
    Perfectly. And beautifully.

    I did not recognize it as transparent
    on my wide screen Mac because there is
    nothing but white space on the left
    hand side of the screen. πŸ™‚

    But on my iPhone it looks great.
    You do great work, David !

    Thank you πŸ™‚ It was Apple inspired, i like the transparent blur they use.

    Glad to be of help

    Oh, Apple started it.
    I find it very elegant.

    One definition of elegance:
    “scientific precision, neatness, and simplicity” (Merriam Webster).

    I believe very strongly in this.

    That’s it, David.

    Are you a German speaker/reader?

    Oh no – my multilingual skills are 2% knowledge and 98% google translate πŸ™‚

    Google Translate, by the way, is exceptionally
    good as long as the content uses straightforward,
    clear, grammatically correct language.

    I tested it this week with my content on
    http://www.understand-culture.com

    Presto-changeo … near-perfect translations !
