Drupal Colorbox - move the text

In this colorbox "slideshow", when you click on the image and get the colorbox, the text description is overlaying part of the image, which on a few of the images hides the important part of the image.

If I try to just move the text, it doesn't show at all because it goes outside the pop up window. Is there some way for me to show the text to the right of the image in a separate pop-up window that changes with the image, or maybe at the bottom of the pop up window? Hopefully there is a way to do this with just CSS, or does it need some javascript?

The title is inside cboxcontent.  You need to remove the overflow attribute from both cboxcontent and cboxloadedcontent to let the overflow default, and that should let the title display.

As for what happens on other pages; I have no idea. When you use common templates there are frequently unintended consequences, and it is even more of an issue when you are locked in to third party code.  So you may have to do some tweaking of the styleshees to get everything working correctly.  I suggest you move the inline styling into stylesheets to make changes easier to manage.

The z-index on the opaque overlay that dims the page is set at 9999 (excessively high).  If you give the text a higher z-index than the opaque overlay, then you should be able to display the text outside of the colorbox.

I changed the z index of the colorbox to 700, enough to make it be the top and then I set the title to be 800, and I set overflow to be visible. This isn't exactly working though.
#colorbox, #cboxOverlay, #cboxWrapper{
	position:absolute; 
	top:0; 
	left:0; 
	z-index:700;
	overflow:visible;
	}
div#cboxTitle {
	position:absolute;
	overflow:visible;
	top:0px;
	left:0px;
	z-index:800;
	margin-left:300px;
	background-color:#FFF;
	color:#333;
	width:300px;
	height:150px;
}

Open in new window

Also, I am not sure how to make sure this effect happens only on this page. There are several other colorboxes.
