Can't Position Caption Below Image (2 posts)

    Hello --

    I use WP 2.1.3 with a somewhat tweaked Halloween 1.1 theme.

    I can't position a caption below an image, even if I add the CSS and HTML as per Using Images>Wrapping Text Around Images. If I follow the present documented instructions, the caption appears above the image and there's a blank space next to the image; in other words the text doesn't wrap. After many hours of trying, I hit upon:

    <div class='left'>
    <img src="/images/xxxxx.jpg" class="alignleft" alt="xxxxx" title="xxxxx" /><font size="1">Visit (caption is a link)</font></div>


    I admittedly have no idea if this is "proper" html, but it succeeds in adding the caption to the right top of the image and also wraps the text. (And I think it looks presentable.) But I'd like to hear any suggestions RE caption *below* image.

    Thanks for your time.

    Try the Image Caption Easy plugin, it will automatically format image captions for you using <div>'s which can then be styled using css: http://imagecaptioneasy.contentspring.com/.
