WP jQuery Lightbox
Caption/Title not displaying for Gallery (5 posts)

    I have both captions and titles for a gallery of images I created and inserted onto a page using the built in WP gallery editor. Clicking an image causes the lightbox plugin to pop up and scroll from picture to picture, but there are no words whatsoever at the bottom. What do I need to do it fix this?

    Wierd. From the top of my head: make sure it's a CSS issue - such as white text on white background.

    Could you provide a link?

    It doesn't seem like a CSS issue, looking at the html nothing is being populated into <span id="caption"> in the imageDetails div, so I don't believe there's text there.

    However, the plugin and captions work great on another site I have, just not this one (http://sigma8-16.com/sample-images/), so is there anything to look for in the theme / plugin config?

    Thanks for the quick reply, I definitely dig this lightbox plugin.

    Don't know. Never had this problem.

    Try filling in all available fields in the WordPress gallery thingy - title, alternate text, caption, description - and see if any of them gets picked up.

    Have you used [gallery meta="true"] as the shortcode?
