Media Grid – Overlay Manager add-on (Add-ons)

By Acty, January 22, 2014

Note: this is an add-on. You must have at least Media Grid v2.4 to use it.

Boost Media Grid with your own overlays!

Overlay Manager does just what its name suggests: lets you create and manage unlimited overlays!
Many elements to mix, unlimited colors, hundreds of different possible combinations.

Full size layers, splitted ones, icons, shapes, corner layers, textual blocks, image effects.
Everything has been created to set your creativity free to create what you like most: from hover behaviors, to CSS3 animations and easings!

Yes, with textual blocks I mean also that is possible to use items descriptions directly in grids items! Without worrying about lenght, html or shortcodes: the Overlay Manager auto-shortener script always cares to adjust everything according with the item sizes. The most asked feature is finally here!

But how is complex and tricky to setup all these things?
Not at all, every productive step has been studied to be done with the maximum ease.

Once you install the add-on, eight preset overlays will be ready to be used or customized.
Check your changes or what you are building without losing time with a live preview.
Finally choose which overlay to use directly in the Media grid shortcode wizard: you can use a different overlay for each grid!

How are you creative?

Think about mixing elements, adding colors, hover effects and maybe a bit of custom css. The Overlay Manager framework is ready to satisfy your needs!

Here’s a creative example that would be used for the LCweb website.

And you, what amazing overlay will you create for your website?
