Ben Miller Posted March 31, 2020 Share Posted March 31, 2020 Site URL: https://www.thislandisdigital.com/ So I'll just say I'm not great with CSS as it applies to Squarespace (so far). I generally understand a decent amount of the action code with the brackets but identifying the right subjects (#thisPiece .thatPart) has given me too much trouble to get much done. Extra explanation on those subjects would be appreciated. Question: How do I selectively hide or otherwise alter (color, animation) the thumbnail titles only for specific pages within an index? Context: My site, ThisLandisDigital.com, uses the Avenue template and a grid of thumbnails organize my portfolio. It's common to include project logos for games and films within related thumbnails, so I've already got a layer of text for the first several images. When I enable the default index titles, the text color is not consistently legible and the text is redundant for some thumbnails. Similarly, when I try including titles directly in all of the thumbnail images, the whole page becomes much harder to read at a glance (the GIFs are distracting enough). The site style controls also don't let me choose top/bottom positions for the title, only left/center/right and overlay/under. I don't know yet what solution will be best or even whether playing with titles on some of the thumbnails will work at all, but to experiment with it I'll need to be able to single out each page's thumbnail and toggle its title visibility. Bonus Question: How would I swap the thumbnail images themselves when hovered such that I could design the titles into the images manually or possibly reduce my GIFs to hover reactions? Thanks.
