Topic: WP Pro plugin - overlay captions on right?

Love this gallery plugin  smile

Any way to have the captions show as an overlay (semi-transparent) on the right of the main image?

Cheers

Re: WP Pro plugin - overlay captions on right?

When using WP-SimpleViewer, the default Gallery Style is 'COMPACT'.
This effectively sets captionPosition="OVERLAY_BOTTOM". If not using the 'COMPACT' style, you will first need to set captionPosition="OVERLAY_BOTTOM" in the Pro Options text area.
Then set captionTextAlignment="RIGHT" in the Pro Options text area.
The full range of Caption Options can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … ml#caption

Re: WP Pro plugin - overlay captions on right?

Thanks Steven.
What I meant was, is it possible to have the overlay effect, like you get with the top or bottom (text on semi transparent panel), but have the panel & text running down the right hand side? I can achieve the caption panel on the right of the image, but not overlaid or semi transparent?

Also, if you're still around, is it possible to run my gallery as a slideshow. I can get it to autostart & loop, but it stops if the user clicks on the image... how to restart automatically if they mouseoff or click again???

Many thanks for a great plugin.  smile

Try using the captionBackOpacity Pro Option (0=transparent, 1=opaque).

You can add an AutoPlay button to the Button Bar (so that a user can start and stop the slideshow) by setting the Pro Option showAutoPlayButton="TRUE".

Finally sussed the slideshow for the front page - didn't notice the imageClickMode="NONE" function.

This means we only need one plugin for a front page slideshow & also galleries with thumbs etc elsewhere on the site. Awesome  big_smile

Now if only we could get the captions overlaid over the image on the right it would be PERFECT, but I guess you can't have everything...

I now see what you mean. The overlay can be positioned at the top or bottom of the main image only (not to the left or right).
