Glassmorphism style for your kbin magazines! v1.1 - 2023-07-08

This css will transform the look of your magazine to be glassy-like!



  • To be used by magazine owners to style their magazines. Add the CSS to Appearance > CSS.
  • Modify the background: url() to use any image you want. Do not use quotation marks in the custom CSS -> This is currently broken.


  • Doesn't play well with light themes (you could add specific styling to solve this)
  • Expect some funkiness, the property backdrop-filter does weird things to layers/z-index for some reason. <del>This is the reason why the options bar appears to not have that glassy look. The dropdown menu's would get rendered under other surrounding elements.</del> Fixed in v1.1
  • Have fun !

You are missing for instance the .popover class styling

Looks awesome (although too laggy on some devices), now being used on @honkaistarrail magazine.

It looks awesome!
Though it doesn't play well with the mobile PWA, at least on my phone. It makes the page laggy.
