    How can I remove the theme's photo caption styling? I have a staff photo gallery and had the names and emails of each staff member under their photo, but then when the Sparkling theme updated, the names are on top of the photo and the emails not showing:

    i just want the text back under each photo.
    thanks you.

    i have the child theme installed and tried some css but it didn't work:

    .gallery-caption{
    opacity: 100;
    }

    .gallery-caption {
    -webkit-box-sizing: none;
    -moz-box-sizing: none;
    box-sizing: none;
    }

    i basically just want the gallery captions to look exactly like they did before i updated to this latest version please. just below the images please, not in a box. thank you.

    Before version 1.5 of this theme gallery was not usable without Jetpack plugin that would convert gallery to tiled galleries.

    You used this flaw in this theme to create gallery which is not meant to be created in WordPress with HTML formatting in captions etc. Now theme uses proper gallery styling with regular captions, with working columns number and resizable images that weren't possible with previous versions.

    The proper way to create this kind of team page would be to use shortcodes like we have on Theme demo: http://colorlib.com/sparkling/sparkling-shortcodes/

    This would offer much better flexibility with columns, styling etc. And it would provide consistency on your stylings.

    Other option is to revert =Gallery styling in style.css from new version to old version but this is not possible to be done via Child Theme. Old style.css is available here: http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/sparkling/1.4.2/style.css

    Sorry about that.

    ok thanks so much. the short codes look a bit complicated for just simple captions. was hoping there was a quick css i could pop in.

    All themes has that option, but they are not meant to be filled with HTML code like in your example.

    Shortcodes aren't complicated as you are not writing a code but you are using a visual shortcode composer where you add your details and you are ready to go. While it says "code" it is far, far away from coding.

    Personally I would just switch back to earlier version of this theme and would avoid avoids. There aren't any crucial bugs that I fixed in this version, so you are safe to use it on your website. You can download any theme version from here.

    I haven't tested my other themes for this kind of behavior and I am not sure if they will work perfectly well as they are not meant for that. Yes, all has galleries with captions, but not with rich HTML code in it.
