Topic: Why captions go all rubbishy when thumbs at bottom/top?

Hi people,

I've been using a layout for my website which is not ideal. My ideal layout is to have the image on one side and the thumb below that, with the captions appearing on the opposite side to the image.

The simplest place to start, I thought, would be to start with the classic gallery preset:

Except when I simply change the  thumbnail location to bottom, the caption disappears. When I re-enable it, it ends up with a black box behind it and all the formatting is wrong:

What I want then, is this:

Little help?

Thank you all.

Re: Why captions go all rubbishy when thumbs at bottom/top?

You could set thumbPosition="BOTTOM" and captionPosition="RIGHT".
The caption background color can be set via captionBackColor.
If setting thumbPosition="BOTTOM", you might want to also set thumbRows="1".

Otherwise, you could use a Fixed Layout.
You can set the Fixed Layout options in svBuilder-Pro in 'Customize -> Fixed Layout'.
