adding title text to carousel

Recommended Posts

workname

it's been hinted at elsewhere but I can't seem to find an answer I would like to add some simple title text to indicate what the images on a carousel are - the site I'm developing is not currently online but is identical to my site here just a simple 4 word title is all I'm after - I know I need to get into the functions.php file but there I'm a little lost any help much appreciated many thanks mark http://claras.me/happybunnyclub

Was any customization done to your carousel? It should dynamically pick up the title of the post, but it's picking up the image file name instead. Perhaps you're using Flickr or NextGen for the thumbs?

hi - thanks for the prompt reply - I'm not much of a poster - i normally try to muddle through :) but I'm really stuck here it's not the thumbs I want the title for - it's the carousel itself - I'd like to add a static title for the carousel, I'm happy with the titles of the posts/images but the carousel itself needs some explanation/context sorry for not explaining myself very clearly - the forum post that almost answers it is here [url]http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/7619/adding-title-to-featured-section-box-section-and-carousel-section/p1[/url] i just need to know what the equivalent code for the carousel might be many thanks again mark

Mark, In your static page, you can add a full-width or universal sidebar in the Content Area (Templates) right between the boxes and carousel. Then, in Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets, apply a text widget to the sidebar you added. Style the text to look exactly how you want it to appear right inside the text widget. Optionally, you can wrap it in a div with class and create CSS specific to that class. Just make sure you use Firebug for Firefox (http://www.getfirebug.com/) to reduce that particular text widget's padding.
