1) Home page: Transparent box with text on top.
a) I would like to increase the opacity so that the text is more readable. How do I change the percentage of transparency?
b) is it possible to change the typeface so that it is bold and thus, more readable?
Reverse type is easier to read when it is bold.
2) How do I change the space above H-tagged text?
Nothing I do seems to change it. (thank you for trying to address this when I first asked.
I neglected to provide my URL for you. 😛
For changing transparancy you can go to Appearance >> Theme Options >> Basic Settings >> Here you can see the bottom you can change the opacity.
For typography you can also change it by go to Appearance >> Theme Options >> Basic Settings.
