Content Slider/Slideshow Suggestion

Hi

When placing titles over images in a slideshow, it would be great if there was an option to apply text shadows to help text "pop" better over images with light to darker values.

I know we can add "overlay" to help with this, but that also affects "pop" of image.

For slideshow, under "Design - "Title" settings, add text shadow option?

Because Content Slider allows us to use "Text" plugin, can you add text shadow option to this as well?

Thank you for your commitment to making this the best component out there.

Hi, Paul!

Yes, we plan to add shadows for the plugin "Headline". For the moment I can propose you a CSS solution.

Step 1. Add class suffix custom-shadow for the plugin text



Step 2. Add this code to the CSS editor
.custom-shadow .content-text {
    text-shadow: 4px 4px 2px rgba(150, 150, 150, 1);
}


Generate shadow here: css3gen.com/text-shadow/

I applied the custom suffix to slideshow plugin under General tab, but it doesn't appear to work as the text elements have their own properties and no custom suffix field?

Can you provide add'l CSS to target theses H1 headings?

You can see the white headings here: mhc.pgadvdesign.com

Thx
