Hello, We are setting up the hosted (SaaS) version of Discourse. I wanted to check two things:
Is there a way of completely turn off profile pictures / avatars? I didn’t see this in the settings.
The banner seems to have a very slight transparency. Tried a few things, but was unsuccessful in making it totally opaque. Is there a way to achieve this?
No, there’s not a setting for this… It’s achievable in a custom theme but would take a little bit of work because avatars are integral to various parts of the layout.
Can you provide a screenshot or be more specific about which banner? There are a few types of banners throughout Discourse.
Hi Kris, Thanks for your reply. Here is a screenshot of our banner. As you can see, there is a slight transparency, and the text behind shows ever so lightly. Wanted to know how we can make this banner completely opaque.
P.S. we are using a customised version of the “graceful” theme.
Great, those are the exact details I needed.
You’ll need to add a bit of custom CSS to fix the opacity. It’s best to add this to a new theme component (in the
edit html/css > css > common section), and then add the theme component to the main theme. This way it won’t be overridden when the main theme gets updated.
There’s some additional detail here about using themes and theme components if you need help: Beginner's guide to using Discourse Themes
