As the nivo module makes this content type called 'slide', there is a title to be set and with views you can normally influence this title field adding some html to it to give it some specific css. But somehow this html doens't get wrapped around the text from the title field. I made this view called 'slideshow' which is displayed as a block.
Format: views nivo slider
Show: views nivo slider
- Unchecked: Create a label, Exclude from display, Link this field to the original piece of conent.
- Style settings: Only checked 'customize field HTML'. Then, from the pull-down list, I set HTML element to STRONG just for testing. No css class yet only wanted to see if there would be strong tags in my nodetitle when inspecting element.
Everything else in Content: title is set to default.
Content: Body - pretty much default. Content: Slide - Settings don't really matter. The rest of the block containing this view works rather fine.
sorted by date. Doesn't really matter.
Everthing else is pretty much set to default and I don't think it's really relevant for this issue if I'm not mistaken.
So to see what's going on, I would go to a page that shows the block containing this view and rightclick on my nodetitle in the nivo slider caption and inspect element. Only to see that any text that is wrapped in the nivo divs is to be found in a p element with no attributes at all. So leave alone a strong element or whatever I would've chosen under content:title settings in my slideshow view.
