Support » Fixing WordPress » How do I edit image captions?

  • Hi,

    I have dozens of images on one of my pages – with captions. The problem is:

    I can’t edit the captions! I can change the captions in the html editor. But the changes don’t take effect.

    Is there a special way of editing captions – or do I need a plugin?

    Thanks for any help on this.

    Have you tried editing each of these images via the Media Library?

    Hi esmi,

    Yes I have tried both options, that is to:

    – edit the caption in the html editor, and
    – edit it by going to the image in media library.

    None of these options work – the changes don’t take effect.

    Any ideas what I might be doing wrong – are there alternative options?

    Thanks for any help on this!

    Can you provide a link to your site?

    Also when you temporarily switch to the Twenty Twelve theme and deactivate all of your plugins can you edit the captions?

    Hi Jan,

    Here is the link to my site and the page I’m working on:
    http://localnepaltoday.com/?page_id=1486

    I have not tried to deactivate the plugins. I am using the Suffusion theme…

    I hope looking at my page will reveal something – does it?

    Thanks!

    Hi again,

    It’s quite strange: I can actually edit the captions in my posts and about-page, but not in the page I have linked to above. So maybe it does have something to do with that particular page?

    Only difference between this and all other contents is that the page I have trouble with is not linked to the menu. But I have other pages also not linked to the menu and they work just fine.

    Or could it have something to do with the number of images in the page I have trouble with? There are many images. I am just guessing. It would be fantastic if you could identify the cause of this.

    Thanks!
    Hans
