8Enable Transparent Header Skin.

If you enable this option, the header will have background color and you can set the color and alpha by clicking on Header section of Background Color & Texture under Jupiter Styling Options. Having Alpha property of background color less than 100%, will make a semi transparent effect in your transparent header.

Background Color


Decide if you want a Light or Dark transparent header by setting the Transparent Header Skin option. Set this according to the background nature of the element which will go behind transparent header. This option is presented to avoid having dark/light text on a dark/light background. Try to keep the contrast by selecting correct option here.
