  • Resolved gordon.cunningham


    I can move the caption to the top of the flexslider div, but I can’t find a way to move the image down below it. What am I missing? Unfortunately the site is in development and I don’t have a public link for it. Here’s the CSS (without the caption at top):

    Not seeing the site, I can’t give you an exact answer, but I can give you an idea of where to look.

    .flexslider-caption {position: relative; bottom: 90px; height: 90px; /* background: rgba(68, 146, 199, 1); */ color: #FFFFFF;}

    That is telling the caption box to be 90px tall, and pushed up 90px from the bottom of the slide. You may need to reposition the slide itself, or set the slide to absolute positioning and the caption to be positioned at the top of the slide.

    Yes, I understand how the caption box parameters work. Using absolute positioning throws off the entire site responsive formatting so that is not an option.

    At this point I’m thinking this cannot be done in CSS, as the two div’s are in the wrong dependency order for top caption. That is, the caption box is dependent on the image div, and I want the opposite. I’ll have to change it in the HTML/PHP code. Any pointers as to where to find this in the plugin code?

    The code is being generated in the file:

    And the code for the image is on lines 38-40 and the caption and title are lines 43-52
