    Does anyone know if we can change the Transparency level for the Preview Tool Tips?, I cant seem to find it in the css anywhere.

    That dosent seem to work for me, it works on the main forum tooltip, but not on the one that previews the posts

    I just tested this on my site and it worked fine.

    Style Properties -> Overlays and Tooltips: Preview Tooltip

    Try that instead.

    What I posted above works.
    I have just set it to 0 on my site and this is the result.


    And this is it set to 0.2.

    Ok 0 or 0.6 seems to work, but setting it to 1 dosent seem to give me a solid border as I would expect..its still transparent

    If you want a solid border, add this to EXTRA.css

    .xenPreviewTooltip {
    border: 10px solid #000000;
    Change the 000000 to the colour you want.

    You may need to do something similar for the arrow css.

    Ok I will try that, but the 1 setting was just an example of what I couldn't get working, ultimately I was trying to get a 0.8 or 0.9 to work , which is what I'm struggling with

    I don't quite understand what it is you're trying to do.

    Do you want a transparent or solid border?

    I have explained how to do both above.
