No, what I'm saying is, this doesn't allow for using both the Title and Caption fields because both will get pulled into the zoomed image's caption.
Let's say I have a photo of climbers on the summit of Everest. I'd like to have a short caption that appears on the page with the thumbnail, something like, "Everest Summit Team" but then want the ability to have a different, perhaps longer caption that appears with the zoomed image (maybe the date, names of the climbers, etc -- just more or different info... it'd look pretty goofy if that longer caption was then followed by "Everest Summit Team" which is exactly what would happen right now.)
My thinking is that the WP Caption field is what should be displayed on the page with the thumbnail, and the WP Title field displayed with the zoomed image, but as is, BOTH are pulled into the zoomed image caption, which makes no sense, whether the info is duplicated or different, both should not be appearing as the zoomed image's caption.
What this does is forces us to choose to use only the Title field (because that's required), so now we can't use the on page Caption field, else it too will be pulled into the zoomed image caption.
Do you understand? This can't be correct functionality... If we do want the same info in the on-page caption and the zoomed caption, that shouldn't mean the zoomed caption is duplicated -- doesn't that seem like an obvious mistake?
Again, my feeling is the WP Caption field should be for the on-page captions, and the WP Title what is used for the zoomed image caption. But they shouldn't BOTH be used for the zoomed image caption.
Thanks much for your time,
