Remove yellow background of Adsense Ads in WordPress

rem-ad-yellow-bkgndHave you encountered pale yellow background in Adsense or other advertising units plates in WordPress?

Then probable you must be using latest WP themes like Twenty-Fourteen. Well, the problem is not at all with ad-units., the actual culprit is the WP themes (Twenty-Ten, Eleven… Fourteen etc.). The color is defined in CSS tag ins of these themes. The solution is also pretty  simple. Search for the following lines

inside the theme style file


and replace with

That’s all, you are done! Now you have transparent background to all ad-units.

In continuation to this I would recommend not to edit the original theme files rather make a child theme and add the modified CSS ins definition there only. This shall prevent any overwriting in case of any future update of these themes.
