Announcing the Post Carousel Overlay Theme

We’re excited to announce a new theme within the SiteOrigin Post Carousel Widget, Overlay. Post featured images are boldly displayed at 360px wide and 460px high. Post titles are overlaid with a subtle background gradient. Post categories are positioned above the post title as links. Carousel navigation is offered as both dots and arrows.

Choose your level of customization. Overlay’s beautiful design is ready to be inserted with little to no changes. Alternatively, dive in and customize every aspect of the design and functionality to make it your own. The choice is yours.

The Overlay theme is available as part of the SiteOrigin Premium Carousel Addon. The Carousel Addon initially included Layout Builder and Anchor ID functionality for the Anything Carousel Widget. We’re excited to expand the addon by introducing a new theme for the Post Carousel Widget.

The Overlay theme was created by Ricardo Salazar, who also designed the SiteOrigin Unwind and Corp themes and the Anything Carousel base theme, to name just a few. Work started in Figma before making its way to Alex at SiteOrigin for coding.
