Creative Layers

Creative Layers are text or image boxes which can be customized via CSS and an appearence animation.

The X(left) and Y(top) position can be handed over with the style attribute in the layer itself.

The basic CSS for all caption should be added in your site's CSS because it depends strongly on your design. You find an example in the style.css of our item download. Classes caption_blue and caption_black. It is pretty simple CSS there.

Available animations for creative layers are (names are somewhat self explaining):
  • slideup
  • slideright
  • slidedown
  • slideleft
  • fadeup
  • faderight
  • fadedown
  • fadeleft
  • fade
