    The Responsive Visual theme does not seem to have a way to add a Caption/Title for a Homepage Slide – only a place for a link.

    is this correct?

    Is there any way that option can be added?

    Thanks much

    Thank you for your business and great question too. Just about anything can be done. I left out captions from the home page slider so they wouldn’t interfere with the sidebar that can be there, but they can be added. Here’s how:

    1. Go to the Appearance section and select Edit.
    2. From the list of files on your right, choose home-slideshow.php
    3. Look for this spot:
      <a href="ID, "slideurl", TRUE); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('slide'); ?></a>
    4. Replace that with this:
    5. Save your changes.
    6. Next go to the Theme Options page and choose the “Styling” tab. Scroll down to the Custom CSS box and paste this:
      p.caption {
      	position: absolute;
      	margin: 0;
      	bottom: 0;
      	width: 100%;
      	-moz-box-sizing: border-box; 
      	-webkit-box-sizing: border-box; 
      	box-sizing: border-box;
      	padding: 2% 5%;
      	color: #fff;
      	background: url(images/ie-background.png) repeat;
    7. Update your settings.

    That should add in a caption for you that uses the slide title as the caption text. If you have any questions or trouble, let me know.

    Have a great week,
