Caption Style & Position? (9 posts)

    Is there an easy -- or any -- way to stylize the appearance and position of captions? (I'm implementing captions via NextGEN description fields.)

    Thanks --

    You can add html into the description field for nextGen.


    <h2 class="fontfaceRight">CAPTION TEXT HERE</h2>

    then you can just style the class

    by the way, I have used this to style appearance only. I really want to position my caption out of the control bar and over the image instead as a title but have tried and tried with no luck as of yet...

    Thanks very kindly -- and yes, I would love to position the captions elsewhere as well. (If I'm feeling adventurous I'll go hunting through the plugin code, and I'll report my findings.)

    you're welcome, if you have any luck with the caption position please let me know, I will do the same...

    I did have a look through the php code on this page (WPSupersized.php) and found a few instances of

    <!--Slide captions displayed here-->
    <div id="slidecaption"></div>

    But moving seems to either have no effect or break the page depending which instance I move.

    Managed it!


    #slidecaption {position:fixed; top:200px; left:200px;}

    or whatever positioning values you need.

    Not perfect for me as my site is a fluid width 90% so if I do left:5% it works until screen goes really small then it shifts in. I think I'll have to live with that though!

    Fantastic -- I'm off to try it this morning. I had been able to move it within its bottom container by applying a "position: absolute" and margin, but it couldn't escape the container of the bottom bar. Thanks for smoking out the applicable code!
