Since CVP 3.9.9, it is easy to overlay thumbnail with text.
You can show overlay always, on hover or disable it.
Also, you can change position of overlay text as top, middle, bottom of thumbnail.
Please ensure to select the
Show Title or
Show Content checkbox in Display Settings >> Fields Settings. Otherwise, there is nothing to show in the overlay.
Overlay without text
For now, overlay always require text. The workaround to show overlay without text is setting transparent color for the text in the overlay:
- select only 2 checkboxes:
Show Titlein Display Settings >> Fields Settings
- use this text
as value of Style Settings > Title > Text Color
