Support » Themes and Templates » How to center image captions?

  • Resolved emilyinchile


    I’ve done some searching and can’t find a solution to this problem. I have a post with images that I want to caption. In the editor the captions look fine, but when I preview the captions aren’t centered under the images – they just look like I typed normal text between two images.

    The only occurrence of the word “caption” in my Stylesheet is:
    .tr-caption-container {padding:5px 0 10px;font-size:11px;font-style:italic;}
    span br {display:none}
    .comment-body br {margin-bottom:10px;}

    I tried the advice in this post, but adding the suggested HTML after the HTML I just posted didn’t help.

    Any ideas? I’m a total newbie, so any help is much appreciate. Blog is if that helps. Thanks!

    Try applying styles to the following classes:

    .wp-caption {
         /* Style definition for image container */
    .wp-caption-text {
         /* Style definition for image caption */

    Thanks a lot.

    In the end, someone else was able to take a look at it IRL and added

    .post p.wp-caption-text {text-align:center;padding:3px;background-color:#eee;border:solid 1px #999;font-size:11px;}
    .aligncenter {text-align:center;margin:0 auto;}

    to the end of the Stylesheet, in case that helps anyone.
