Caption too long for display format (7 posts)

    The text caption of my images is too long to display correctly and it's overlapping at the bottom of the lightbox.

    I was wondering if there was a way to adjust the height of the bottom part to its content?

    I've tried adjusting inner height, regular height with the resize option checked, about anything I could do, nothing is working!

    I'd appreciate a little help :D

    Thanks!

    I'm assuming that you mean the caption/title at the bottom is running into the lightbox controls. Have you tried the Overtext style? Example

    Thanks, it's working way better! It would be nice to have control over that through style, so we could use the other display settings and still have long caption !

    @elainebosse Agreed! Overtext is the only style that allows for long captions/descriptions without problems. Overtext is great-looking, so I'm happy, but it would be nice to have other styles that handle caption the same way.

    I did not see the Overtext style as a setting, when going to the settings section for this plugin. Can you guide me through on how to activate this. Thanks...

    @Microcap Under "Lightbox Plus Colorbox - Base Settings", click on the "Styles" tab. You should see "Lightbox Plus ColorBox Style:" and choose "Overtext" from the list of styles.

    Make sure you have the latest version of the plugin since the Overtext style wasn't available in earlier versions.
