Carouseul Captions to the right of images

Hello !

It may not be easy but here's how I would like to change the carousel :

The images would be on the left of the screen, and the captions would be centered in the free space on the right. The images would be of different sizes so the captions have to adapt to the images width.

I managed to fix the images to the left, and to center the captions in the middle of the page. But the captions should be centered on the free space to the right of the images.

Do you know if it's doable in Javascript to do something like this :
First calculate the width :
Width of window - Width of carousel image = NewWidth
Then apply it :
NewWidth = Width of Captions

I guess it's not possible in CSS..
I hope it's understandable !

Thank you !

Got an idea for Lay Theme? I might include it in a new update or code an addon.
Loading gif for html5 videos

Dear @strayorbit

Unfortunately this is not possible from the standard options provided,
However if you have have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS & JS you can fairly easily implement this onto your page through the "+ More - HTML" option within the Gridder -

Alternatively you can use "Custom CSS & HTML" in "Lay Options"

Adding a Video through Custom Code:

With this option you have much more flexibility over how you control the video along with options to add a loading Gif:


For more information regarding CSS:

Additionally when using Javascript we need to remember to load it into Lay Theme with a "Newpage Event" :


Also if using jQuery, to replace the shorthand symbol '$' to 'jQuery'

If this becomes too problematic you may wish to seek the aid of a developer.

I once again apologise that the option isn't as easy and that i cannot help further with Customisation,
however if you have any further questions please feel free to ask :)

Best Wishes and thank you for using Lay Theme
