This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Image Caption


Extracts the title or alt attribute from images within your blog post and generates a neat caption directly underneath those images. Supports custom CSS styling for captions.


  • generates image caption using img tag’s title or alt attribute
  • standards compliant: valid XHTML
  • degrades gracefully when disabled
  • supports images with links (e.g. to higher resolution of the same image)
  • supports MyCSS by disabling default CSS import
  • supports custom CSS class for div image container
  • automatically adds width and height attribute to your image
  • does not write to your WordPress database


Once activated, you can start adding caption to your image by adding title attribute to it:

<img src="/images/picture.jpg" alt="" class="center" title="A sample caption">

CSS classes supported “out of the box” are: center, alignleft, alignright.

If you prefer to use “alt” attribute for the generation of image caption, open the php file and change $ic_att to “alt” instead of “title”.

More usage details can be found at the plugin’s homepage.
