[resolved] Captions not working properly (6 posts)

    On my website, HTML Blox, the captions don't show up properly. If you see http://www.htmlblox.com/lessons/html-lessons/lesson-33-lay-it-out-tables/ you will see the problem I am facing. The images are showing up properly, but it looks like the caption code isn't being processed.

    I've upgraded to the latest version of WordPress and tried re-adding the caption and it still results the same.

    Thank you.

  2. Are you using any plugins which might break the caption shortcode? Try disabling your plugins, see if that makes it work.

    Good idea, but no go. I deleted any deactivated plugins (not really for this, just housekeeping) then deactivated all active plugins and nothing changed for the caption.

    Your code is very different from mine as far as a picture and a caption go.

    [caption id="attachment_79" align="aligncenter" width="201" caption="Image 3.3.1: An table diagram."]<img class="size-full wp-image-79" title="html33table" src="http://www.htmlblox.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/html32table.png" alt="Image 3.3.1: An table diagram." width="201" height="201" />[/caption]

    <div id="attachment_1351" class="wp-caption alignleft" style="width: 161px"><img class="size-full wp-image-1351" title="candparkguide" src="http://www.ourexcellentadventures.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/candparkguide.jpg" alt="This one looks good!" width="151" height="220" /><p class="wp-caption-text">This one looks good!</div>

    Mine is on the bottom.

    Yes, if I'm not mistaken when I post an article that [caption] gets converted to what you posted at the bottom. These captions used to work as well, and I believe the code looked very similar to what you posted.

    I didn't make any changes or anything either. I just noticed one day that they were broken.

    I may have to just change what quote the Add Media link adds to my file, though that would be a bother.

    Ah, I fixed it. I forgot that I began to work on a plugin that would replace terms with terms in a glossary I had set up. I did a sort of hard-coded plugin just for testing and was echoing "get_the_content()" instead of using the_content().

    I guess within the_content() it must do the processing to convert [caption] to <div class="wp-caption">.

    Thanks for the help everyone.
