Filenames under thumbnails

Hi

I've tweaked just about every setting in the templates and seen expected effects but can't find / or have missed the control for text size for filenames *under* thumbnails.

To illustrate: my standard filename format of YYYY-MM-DD-PICSET-NNN-FRAME-NN.jpg is being truncated as in this sample album of old slides from 1971:

All I need to do is make this text smaller so the standard name fits each time (or un bold it as that might help)

Many thanks for tips.

Ed

Re: Filenames under thumbnails

Hi Ed,

Currently, you'll need to use custom css to make the text smaller. For example:

ul.metadata li {
	font-size: .75em;
}

Re: Filenames under thumbnails

Many thanks Rod for advice - maybe I should invest in an interactive css editor? - I would only need it for element tweaking so does not need to be overblown. Is there any people would recommend for editing a backlight site on Mac OS X - and sorry for really novice question: but which files should I edit and/or leave well alone - local or on the site live via Transmit?

Re: Filenames under thumbnails

I don't know of any "interactive" CSS editors. I just use the browser's inspector to find selectors and to experiment.

With Backlight, using custom CSS is pretty easy

For editing Code on a Mac, TextWrangler is supposed to be good. And it's free.

Re: Filenames under thumbnails

I have CSSedit.app on my Mac, but I hardly use it. Most of the time, I use Chrome's Developer Tools and set the CSS until I think I got it right. This works well for small changes.
