i realize this isn’t probably in your scope of support, but wondered if you could tell me how to create a semi-transparent background for text on the layerslider plugin. i would like it be similiar to the transparency in the simple layer sliders included with the theme.
You can insert an image with semi transparent background.
You can also create another layer, select h1, h2 etc. Insert the a text, go to Style. Insert top, bottom, left and right padding, say 50px each. On custom-style settings insert background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5). This is not going to work on IE8 or lower.
