Yes it's possible to make it transparent but with custom CSS, I could help but I'm on phone and probably for one more week ;(
You could however post in a new topic so someone can help if you can't wait.
You can change the title color but its global.
And I agree, it's a good idea for the title to have to have optional color setting for title just like it has for the background
And i will try to add that option for next update 😉
As for the font awesome icons
If you mean to add it in the quick links then I'm not quite sure. Never tested.
but you could ignore the quick links block and create a custom html block however you want for links, if you look in the reviews, someone has posted a nice screenshot of custom html block for links and with font awesome icons. So try to message him to get the codes. It's simple structure I believe I helped him on that but I cant find the conversation. 🙂
