    I’m looking to add a banner/overlay to the featured image – sort of like the ‘SOLD’ banner seen on some sites.

    for example: https://usgolfcars.com/sold-banner-red/

    Would anyone know of a plugin (or source code) on how to accomplish this?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Are you wanting to do this to all featured images, or only ones in a specific category?

    Hey Tom,

    Thanks for taking a look.
    I am looking to do it For ones in a specific category.

    Thanks.

    PS: This would be a nice feature to include in WP ShowPosts pro πŸ˜‰

    What plugin are you using to display posts right now? It doesn’t seem to add the category to the post container, which makes it impossible to target specific categories.

    I am using ContentView Pro. It allows to list posts by category among other things.

    It will need to add a class to the posts so we can target them.

    You can try WP Show Posts – it adds the necessary classes.

    Hey Thanks Tom. I managed to get CV to work in an acceptable way.

    Hi,

    I have just installed your plugin to replace a ThemeForest theme I have been using for a couple of years. The bulk is crazy, so I am hoping to significantly reduce the load speed of my site.

    Can I just say thank you for making the theme so easy to navigate, it is extremely user friendly to make changes that tidy up the migration. I have two things to resolve please;

    1. I would like to add an overlay to the ‘featured’ images on the categories. This would be different for each category, but there would be text on every one. I cannot see how to do that.

    2. I have added an slider (using livemesh addons) to the home page, but it now leaves a large gap between that and the navigation menu (presumably where the featured image would go), how can I reduce this?

    Thank so much,
    Helen
