Scaling overlay text on portfolio grid images

Recommended Posts


So I used the CSS given to me the first time I asked this Q and changed the mobile view option to 20px (10 was too tiny).

But I'm still having the issue that when the size of the project thumbnails is reduced due to screen size or the platform it's viewed on, the text doesn't reduce with it to stay within the image.  I get these scroll tabs when the title is longer.  I've attached a screenshot.

Try this replacement CSS:

@media screen and (max-width: 1400px) and (min-width: 768px) {
  #collection-60918b0fccbc0b415d2e579f {
    .portfolio-grid-overlay .portfolio-title {
      font-size: 1.6vw;
      overflow: hidden;

It covers 1400px to 768px, and uses a font size that directly scales with the viewport width (vw instead of px).

Let me know how that works for you.
