    I'm trying to figure out how to add titles and captions and descriptions in the nextgen carousel and have the shortcode: [nggallery id=1 template=carousel images=7] which works to show the images and thumbnails but I don't know how to add in the captions and descriptions.

    Thanks for you help and guidance

    Were you ever able to figure this out?

    Hi,
    good question. I struggled with this and with the plugin and finally gave up on the plugin after figuring out lots of things and have to think back about what I did.
    I went to the nextgen gallery that i was using and put in text in both the title as well as description. Make sure that the "show captions" is on in the galleryview settings.
    The description text, the lower one is the h2 tag in the style sheet. I changed it from margin: 0 0 20px 0; to margin: 0 0 0px 0; but you have to play around with it in the styling.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Hmm, I don't see a "show captions" option. How do I find the galleryview settings? In WP I went to Gallery > Options > Gallery ?

    Did you edit any of the .php files or just mess with the plugin options?

    I've searched everywhere but can't seem to figure this out :/ any other ideas on how to show the title/description for the Carousel template?

    Are you using the galleryview plugin? Thats what I was using for this carousel. However I've now gone to scrollgallery which I think is better and easier to set up. But try galleryview and see how you like it. I didn't do anything in the php at all, only the css. Firebug is helpful when trying to figure out what is going on and what the css is.
