  • Hi aalim,
    Did you find a solution to your query? I am also looking for a slidshow with caption below the image.

    +1 from me, as well. I’d very much like to see an option to place the caption below the image.

    looking for that. already tried different things without success.

    I guess there is something to change in the jquery.galleryview-2.0.js around line 868.
    any suggestions?

    ok, guess i found a solution (not the best but seems to work):

    just add the following code to your themes style.css:

    .nav-next, .nav-prev , .strip_wrapper {
    	margin-top: 60px;
    .galleryview {
    	margin-bottom: 60px;
    .panel {
    	padding-bottom: 60px;
    .panel .panel-overlay, .overlay-background{
    	color: #666 !important; /* text-color of the captions */

    then go to file jquery.galleryview-2.0.js in the galleryview plugin folder on line 425; below

    // Set the height and width of each panel, and position it appropriately within the gallery

    and replace


    this adds 60px of the panel’s height

    so you have 60px below the picture to show the captions

    just try and report

    Hi chironex!

    Thanks for the code.

    I tried the first step of adding to style.css and that worked to expand the layout of the gallery. Now I want to move the caption in the available space. I can’t even find the file
    duur…where is it?
    I looked in plugin folder of galleryview but this is all I have:

    Also, any advice on how to change the background color of the whole gallery?
    And how to change the color of caption background/caption text?
