Support » Themes and Templates » Attachment Pag calling the Image description

  • Hi I have a question about the attachment page.

    If I use a caption on the main page which is for example is 2 or 3 words long. But the Description is much longer. Can I call the Description instead of the caption on the attachment.php template?

    So people who want to see a larger image also see a larger caption? I tried search the codex. Thinking this has been asked before but couldn’t find anything that related to just calling the description and not the caption.

    I copied my image.php page from a previous build.

    In it I using the caption called.

    <?php // if ( !empty($post->post_excerpt) ) the_excerpt() ?>

    Which called the caption as I wrote it.

    But when I replaced it with the
    <?php the_content();?>

    It then gave me the description as I though I requested it.

    The other thing is I didn’t have a excerpt in the main post. But yet it reverted to caption instead of being blank.

    Regardless issue closed!
