I apologize if someone has answered this already, but I've looked everywhere. I also apologize if my verbiage is confusing.
In the Pagelines Pro feature slider options menu, I'm given the option to have dots, post titles, and 50x30 post thumbnails on my slider. I don't like any of these options. I want big thumbnails with the title listed on them.
I started by picking thumbnails and used css to increase the size of my thumbnails and feature slider navigation bar. With that done, I'd now like to have the title of the post in a small font at the bottom of the thumbnails. Preferably with a black background. I've noticed that each thumbnails has text overlay with the post title. Is there any way to simply have this overlay already on the thumbnail at the bottom?
An example of what I'd like can be found on the front page of espn.com. Note the thumbnails in the feature slider with text on the bottom.
If this is too difficult or confusing to accomplish with css, can someone recommend a slider plugin that will do this? I'd like one where you can adjust settings within the post like the one currently used by pagelines.
Again, I'm sorry to be so confusing.
