Topic: Is it possible to have a background color in the caption area?
In the webpage I am constructing, I am using SV with fixed layout. Due to my design, I want the captions to display over the main image. I regulate this through setting "captionUnderThumbs" to false and setting appropiate values of "captionPadding", "captionX", "captionY" for the position, and "captionHeight" and "captionWidth" which define the caption area.
Since some pictures are light and other are dark, it is difficult to find a caption font color that works all the time. Therefore, I would like to know if it is possible to have a background color in the caption area that guarantees that the captions can be read independently of the lightness of the image.
I would like to have a dark color in the background (black or dark grey) and white text. Is it possible at all?
If it is possible to have it, would it be possible to have the color with a certain transparency? (so that it is possible to distinguish the image under the text).
Thanks for your help
