Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » How to present title and description in the Lightbox

  • Resolved ziemot



    I would like to show the title of the picture and the description in the Lightbox as user click on thumbnail of the picture in the gallery.
    Using some advices from this support forum I come to the situation I can show the description. I used Legacy settings with Fancybox and Shutter Lightbox motif – without results :-(. I also test the workaround with copy of title in the description field 🙂 – it’s working – but this is the workaround and for the long term I can not accept it.

    I try to modify the plugin code based on some suggestions find in Internet, but since the new version of NextGen has completely new code and folder structure – it is hart to find proper script to modify.

    So, could you please tell how to push NextGen to show the title of the picture together with description?

    Hi @ziemot,

    Some clients want to show their titles; some of them want to show their descriptions.
    Here is a list of our current Free NextGen Gallery Lightbox Effects and what they use as their main “Caption”.

    – SimpleLightbox: Title.
    – Fancybox: Description.
    – Shutter: Description.
    – Shutter reload: Description.
    – Thickbox: Description.
    – NextGen Pro Lightbox (Available in NextGen Gallery Pro or Plus only): Both.

    Unfortunately, we currently don’t have that option in our Free version, but we’ll be happy to add that to our feature request board.
    Please, fill this form:

    Use the text box located before “Want to see something that’s not on the list or add more details for your choices above? Let us know below.”

    We’ll always love to hear about our real user needs.
    Many thanks
