    Hi Shaun,

    You can do this when you add new images – the title text can be the headline and the “Excerpt” underneath is the subheadline. If you have “show caption” (or something similar, I forget the exact wording) in the settings.

    Does this make sense? I can load up the plugin myself and provide more exact instructions if you’d like..


    Excellent, thats done the trick – Thank you very much 🙂

    The above worked for me, thank you! Now, how do I change the color of this caption and excerpt text and it’s background color?

    Thanks so much!!!


    Also, can the caption and excerpt text be the same for all images or do the captions need to be unique?

    Thanks again

    Hi Michele,

    Captions and excerpts can be whatever you want – unique / identical / filled / empty. It shouldn’t matter.

    You can change the appearance of the caption using some custom CSS:

    carousel-caption h4 {
        color: <your text colour>;
        background-color: <your background colour>;

    Hope this helps – several people have asked this recently, so I’ll add it to the FAQ in a future release.
