Problems with Tumblrize and image captions (5 posts)

    I use the Tumblrize plugin to get posts from my blog to display on my Tumblr page and it works fine except it also copies image "captions" which Tumblr doesn't properly recognize. I haven't been able tweak this in the CSS of my Tumblr page because the captions aren't in a particular class; they aren't even in a code that Tumblr understands.

    Would it be possible to get Tumblr to recognize the captions? That would be the easiest fix.

    An alternative would be, I suppose, to change the Tumblrize plugin and have it only copy and paste text (not necessarily the image) without captions into my Tumblr blog.

    In any event, I could use help!

    To clarify, what I get on Tumblr is:

    [caption id=”attachment_11760” align=”alignright” width=”300” caption=”Test”] IMAGE [/caption]

    With Tumblr being unable to read the "caption" code.

    I have this problem as well at my webpage. It seems what the plugin needs to do is to check for captions and replace it with the new HTML5 equivalents of <figure> and <figcaption>.

    Anyone know how to do that?

    This would be really important to have it work. Is the developer anywhere around to give an answer?
