  1. With CSS i have managed to move the caption in a gallery slide show on to the photo with a tinted background ( Tick) BUT the gallery section retains a white panel below the image. This creates an excessive gap to the next section. Any one? or @tuanphan you are a legend. Can this be removed with further code? Current code i have used is...
  2. Site URL: https://www.oxbowphoto.com/new-page Hi, I would like to show image captions only when I click an image and view it in the Lightbox. Right now, if I enable captions in the gallery settings it only shows descriptions below the image in gallery/grid view which isn't ideal. Does anyone know how to fix this with CSS? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. I am using the Bedford template and I would like to change the "caption overlay on hover" feature so that the overlay covers the whole image, the whole image is clickable, and I can customize the colors of text and the overlay itself. The default "caption overlay on hover" style is a small transparent gray bar that overlays the very bottom of the image. I searched everywhere for a cohesive snippet of custom CSS code, and while there are several partial answers, I have yet to see something that covers all of my wish list. I'll keep tinkering and report back!
  4. My question concerns information / captions that are entered into picture galleries and how best to view this across all devices. My site is built using HAYDEN theme and I want to change the small white dot in the bottom right hand corner of images when using the gallery setting - partic in mobile devices. How do I change the white dot to the word "MORE" or "MORE DETAILS" to make it more obvious? Is there a piece of custom coding for this please?
  5. I am brand new to Square Space, just starting to build my site. I have watched several SP help videos, I have watched a few You Tube teachers, but I am not seeing the things they describe and demo. I check the FAQ's and my browser is up to date. I am trying to add text captions below my images but when I hover over the image I don't get an edit menu to pop up? I don't get a box to type text in. I have tried a Gallery page, I have tried a Portfolio page. I go into edit, click the pencil, toggled Captions "ON" but nothing changes? It seems so very simple but I can't figure it out. Wha
  6. I would like to add the same drop shadow to all my images, including those in a gallery. I am currently using: .image-block { filter: drop-shadow(5px 5px 8px #000000); } But that only works on non-gallery images and also gives the caption a drop shadow which I don't want. Thanks
  7. Site URL: https://roadrunner-rhino-alr9.squarespace.com/ Oof - I do hope some day that Squarespace will over more caption options. I would like to have text ON the image itself, like the heading sample image in the screenshot below. In H1 or H2. This must be possible with a whole lot of CSS, no? Or is there some other workaround anyone has sorted out? password NWFC
  8. Site URL: https://www.etiennemellor.com/gallery-4 Hello, I would like to re-create the effect of the image below using CSS. Title in caps and underneath the Name. Any help would be appreciated. Right now I'm using this code: .gallery-caption p{color:white ; font-size:30px!important; font-family:"serif"!important;letter-spacing:.3pt!important;font-weight:100; font-style:normal;margin-left:3em!important} .gallery-caption {margin-top:-20%; opacity:0!important} .gallery-masonry-item:hover .gallery-caption {opacity:1!important; transition-duration:0s}
  9. Site URL: http://www.ericlendl.com Greetings. I want to keep my site free of text, as much as possible. For my portfolio pages, I don't want to include captions (just images), but when you click on the image, I'd like full artwork captions included (on the left or right-hand side [or bottom]) of the linked image. Basically need to include five lines worth of text (example below): John Doe This is My Art Title 2020 Acrylic on Space Shuttle 150 x 17 x 3" Is this doable? Does that even make sense? Effectively, just need artwork details included on the blow
  10. I use gallery photos to display a selection of grouped products on my shop homepage. I need to add a description to each photo so that the customer knows what the category is. But the sqauerspace captions are very ugly, in a small font, not able to centre-justify them or change their colour or anything. Is there any wa round this without changing the font for my entire website. Is there any way to make hover captions on gallery photos which work as click-through URLS?
  11. I have a gallery block with images of old ships and captions. The captions can't be formatted as is this isn't a feature yet. Is there a way to edit only one word in a caption to be in italics? (and to be able to do this with multiple images in the same gallery block?) Example: So and so traveled on the SS France in 1921. (Where only the word France would be in italics) I can imagine this being an issue for lots of academics and artists out there!
  12. Site URL: https://haddock-crocodile-e7d3.squarespace.com/ How can I make the caption text bigger in the Gallery Grid Strips block? My client wants the text bigger as it a feature on their home page and the current text is getting lost on the page. It's a shame that there aren't extra options in the pop up edit window such as text size or text in button etc? Many thanks in advance :0)
  13. Site URL: https://deedsgetoutandvote.squarespace.com/art Hi Circle folks, Does anyone know why my attempt to replicate the on hover caption style for masonry galleries as on the homepage of this site: https://deedsgetoutandvote.squarespace.com/ Pwd: PACDeeds on this page: https://deedsgetoutandvote.squarespace.com/art isn't quite working? Here's the CSS which is basically just a clone of what I used for the gallery captions: // Gallery: Masonry block captions on hover .blog-masonry .blog-item-summary { position: absolute !important; top: 50%; left: 50%; transfor
  14. Site URL: https://www.kennedydesign.nl/ Hi, I am hoping someone can help me out. I have used the Matsuna template for my design portfolio and I want to add captions and tekst about each image. How can I do this? I want to give context to the images. Thank you!
  15. Site URL: https://www.maartendelobel.com/ Hi, I want to change the fontsize of my captions underneath my pictures that's on a masonry gallery page. Squarespace doesn't support this, but may be somebody can provide me a CSS-code for it? Thank you.
  16. Site URL: https://www.houseofbliss.com/portals-gallery I'm using the "Avenue" template. On my page https://www.houseofbliss.com/portals-gallery, I have captions for each image in the grid. On the desktop, when I click on an image it opens a lightbox and the image captions are displayed. But on my phone, in the lightbox it shows each enlarged image, but where the captions should be there's a little white dot I have to click on to activate the caption. I didn't notice the dot for a while and I don't think a lot of other people would either. Is there a setting I can change to force the captions
  17. Site URL: https://chartreuse-earthworm-a73r.squarespace.com/breishisi Hi there, I am using the Avenue 7.0 template. There does not seem to be any way to change the way captions in the lightbox appear. They are white text over a black box upon hover. I would like the caption to appear in black below the image, not overlaid over it. Does anyone know how to do this? I saw some posts about CSS to change captions upon hover, but not in the lightbox... Thank you!
  18. Site URL: https://www.brownsteinpr.com/talent Does anyone know how to make the captions on an image in a gallery invisible? I want the text to be there for SEO purposes, but I don't want it visible. I know with image blocks you can make captions not visible. Any way to do this with galleries?
  19. Site URL: https://www.noahwoods.com/ I have a gallery on my site but would like the captions to show up in the Lightbox and not in the grid view. I don't see how I can do that. Any css overrides that I can use? Thank you.
  20. Site URL: https://dartmour-retrievers-draft2-km.squarespace.com/ Hi, I'm wondering how to change the size of the image captions on an image gallery layout in Squarespace 7.1 with custom code?

  21. Hi, I am working on a squarespace site for one of my clients. I need to make some small tweaks to the template. The template is "Montauk" 1. Product page - I want the "Additional Info" content to be moved under the product details, just above the dropdown menu. 2. I would like to be able to put captions on product images. Could I use image metadata, or alt text? I have coding knowledge, but not much experience with Squarespace. Is what I am asking for even possible withing the squarespace platform?

  22. My gallery captions show up over the image on bottom center on the desktop version, but there are no captions when you switch to the mobile version.
  23. I am using a Wells template and am trying to change the level of "boldness" of the image captions in my image galleries. What Custom CSS code snipets work? I managed to change the font weight for the image description but same code does not work for the image title. Font I am using is "LATO" .image-title { font-size: 17px; letter-spacing: 0.02em; font-weight: 400; "this does not work" } .image-desc p { font-size: 16px; font-weight: 400; "this works" }
  24. Site URL: https://wisteria-panda-z2eg.squarespace.com/sound-talent pw for the site is: rotorsound Dear All, Is there any way, to apply line breaks in captions such as gallery grid captions? This has been talked about in the past, but I couldn't find solutions for 7.1. In the example website, I would like to apply line breaks wherever I currently have commas. I would even go so far as to labeling them all by hand through code, as suggested by this code, that I found here in the forum: /* image 1 */ .sqs-gallery-block-grid .slide:nth-child(1) .image-slide-title:after { con
  25. Signed up or squarespace because some of my colleagues use it and have really nice sites. (I'm a photographer.) One thing that my colleagues have that I can't seem to create is an option to provide a caption when you hover over an image in a gallery. I'm using the Minetta template, but I don't see it in any of the other templates either. I can make it so the caption appears under the photo, but....yuck. Any ideas?
