This is what I'm using for our site, just change the hex color's to what fits for you and place inside the CSS section.  Hope this helps some.

I am sooo sorry for being such a newb on these things.  The site looks awesome now!

I want to see if I can change the color of the fonts to another color and the fill-in in each of the boxes to a see thru type of color/shade?

Would anyone know how to do that?  Thanks!

I took the code above and put it on my test site to play around.  Are you wanting something like this?

http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=139339&TabID=1184545

If so, put the following in the body section of the CSS:

OPACITY: 0.7;

Think of the "0.7" as a percent.  1 being solid, and 0 being completely transparent.


Edit:  I also have the page set to 950px wide in case your wondering why it might be skinnier (depending on what resolution you are viewing at).

I'm going to try and play around with that opacity too...

I'm trying to go for a semi see-thru look on where the black is.  I hope that makes sense.

Yeah, I've not figured out how to make just the background be slightly transparent.  The way I posted above makes everything in the boxes transparent.  Its the closest I've come  If you figure something else out, I'd be very interested.
