Code to decrease overaly:

/* -- code to decrease blog overlay -- */
.blog__article__overlay:after { opacity:0.5; }
/* - end - */

The opacity value can be adjusted to your needs. 0.1 would be almost no overlay and 0.9 would be high background overlay.


with opacity: 0.5

If the above code isn't affecting the overlay, try this to completely remove the overlay:

/* -- code to remove blog overlay -- */
.blog__article--image:after { display:none; }
/* - end - */

Code to make the title font bold:

/* -- code to make blog headings bold -- */
h3.blog__article__title { font-weight:bold; }
/* - end - */
