Support » Themes and Templates » Columns in Captions

  • i am looking to enhance my image caption with image tags (using a media tags plugin) and some other links. I’m a beginner, but can usually hack my way through to an answer.

    This is my mockup:

    Is it possible to use CSS to add columns and multiple links in this manner? I’m looking for a scalable solution.

    .wp-caption {
    	text-align: center;
    	padding-top: 10px; }
    	.wp-caption img {
    		margin: 0;
    		padding: 0;
    		border: 0 none; }
    	.wp-caption p.wp-caption-text {
    		font-size: 11px;
    		padding: 0 5px 0 5px;
    		margin: 5px 0 0 0; }

  • Not totally sure what you are asking — are you asking about how to create the three sections of captions? Certainly that’s possible using CSS but you would need to use “float” to get the next to each other. You’d have a div that contained three separate divs (one for each caption section) — and there would likely be styles for each of those 4 divs — setting alignment and styles for each one.

    Honestly, I dont know the specifics of what I want to do, only what I want it to look like. (see link above). What would you recommend?

    What you want is not that hard to do — but you do need to know some HTML and CSS — and it’s really more than can be provided on these forums. And once you had the code written, you’d also need to know how to put it in the PHP file(s). Another issue is that commercial themes are not generally supported here, so you’d need to go to the vendor for any help — and I doubt they’d do customization like that for free — though you could ask them.

    So my suggestion would be to possibly find a theme that has what you want (not sure you’ll find that) or consider hiring someone to do the work for you. You could ask the theme developer or post a job listing here:
