Image caption issue with WP 3.4 (19 posts)

    My image captions not being aligned under the image or in the caption frame (the frame is lost) after the upgrade to 3.4. I use theme Twenty-Eleven, and I haven't done anything except hit the update button. I know nothing about code, so I'm not sure what to do to fix this...

    My old posts are fine, my new post is not: http://lexireidstudio.com/2012/06/17/shadow-boxes-and-three-dimensional-collages/

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!

    Have you tried:
    - deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi, I've deactivated all of my plugins (I don't have very many), and still the caption frame is missing, and the text is misaligned (runs beside the image and below it).

    Any other ideas to try?

    Did you try placing a new image with the plugins disabled? If you look at the code being written for the new versus the old it looks like some css is missing. Are you using a child theme?

    I'm just using the Twenty Eleven theme - the standard one.

    It's version 1.4.

    Most likely the auto-upgrade file transfer went awry. Please complete a manual upgrade as shown here, http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended

    Thanks for sending this to me to try - will definitely try this as my last resort. I'm such a newbie, I just do everything from my dashboard and follow the upgrade prompts from WP.

    There seem to be a number of people having this issue in the forms - so it's not just me.

    I am having the same problem. Tried deactivating small number of plugins I use. I am using Thesis 1.8.3

    Think WP 3.4 photo caption update might be buggy.

    I like that WP added more commands allowable in the photo caption. But I have to do a lot of rework because it is not working right.

    @jonill45

    You should start your own thread instead of strap-hanging onto someone ele's. Thesis is a premium theme and is supported by diythemes. You will have better luck using the support you have paid for.

    Thanks for the tip kmesssinger.

    For the others.

    I have the same problems as lexistudio when I am using the WP 2011 theme.
    I also tried deactivating plugins didn't help.

    Keep trying lexistudio we will figure it out.

    Sorry - good idea - wasn't thinking - not the first time.

    The caption looks good in the back end where you write the page/post, but doesn't translate to the published page. So I capture the image & caption on the writing page/post. I use the Win Snipping Tool, or other print screen & edit in GIMP/Photoshop & replace the first image. So it is like I am uploading an image with the caption already. Takes extra work, but gets it done, and these images will look as the same as future images when the caption problems are resolved.

    Hope this helps

    John

    I show an example of my temporary fix described above if you need to put up some images with captions ASAP. Hope this is of some help to some.

    Hi John,

    I've done a manual fix suggested by another thread on this:

    After WP 3.4:

    [caption id="attachment_762" align="aligncenter" width="300"]<img class="size-medium wp-image-762 " title="Waxed images and abstract encaustic paintings ready for collage assembly." src="http://lexireidstudio.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/assemblage-13-300x230.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="230" /> Waxed images and abstract encaustic paintings ready for collage assembly.[/caption]

    Manual fix: move caption and fix alignment:

    [caption id="attachment_762" align="alignnone" width="300" caption=”Waxed images and abstract encaustic paintings ready for collage assembly.”]<img class="size-medium wp-image-762 " title="Waxed images and abstract encaustic paintings ready for collage assembly." src="http://lexireidstudio.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/assemblage-13-300x230.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="230" /> Waxed images and abstract encaustic paintings ready for collage assembly.[/caption]

    There is a discussion here about the fix:

    Upgrading to the latest version of the theme should solve this problem automatically. Upgrading to Thesis 1.8.5 solved the issue for me.
