Hi, I'm new to using this slider and was trying to figure out how to put text content on top of a video slider slide. Please see the attached .PNG. Idea is to give slightly more of a preview than the side bar before a user clicks to go to the featured content page. I am using Wordpress with Divi.

    If you want to use the same structure for each slide (image + title + description + button), you may use Slide Markup Editor in general options.

    For example, somewhere after {{image_tag}} add something like:

    <div class="my-overlay">

    and then style such overlay via CSS or use your theme styles.

    I was able to get it over each slide using:

    position: absolute;
        top: 50%;
        left: 50%;
        transform: translate(-50%,-50%);

    But now want to edit the overlay text to be bigger without also editing the sidebar text. Is there a way to do accomplish this?

    Nevermind, I figured it out!

    If you want to change the header (5) of .my-overlay just go:

    .my-overlay h4 {
    font-size: 40px;

    If you want to change the body go:

    .my-overlay p {
    font-size: 20px;

    Thanks for your help!
