Adding captions AND text box to image/headline block

Recommended Posts

Hello folks:  I want to create a full-screen block that has a large inset image (headline or image block) and that allows both a caption and accommodates text box overlays. As far as I can tell, Squarespace does not support a block like this, and it's driving me absolutely nuts. Up till now, I've had to choose between using (1) a headline block that accommodates text block overlays but does not support captions and (2) an image block that does not accommodate text block overlays but supports captions. I've defaulted to option 1, but it looks terrible. There is way too much space between the photo and the caption (see attached photos with black lines highlighting the issue). Can anyone help me sort this out? I don't want to adjust spacing on any other part of the website. I feel like it should not be this difficult. THANK YOU!

Hi MeghanBoesch,

You can move the caption up a bit using relative positioning, could you pm the temp site password to have a look?
