Support » Plugin: Easy FancyBox » Lightbox Title while images are in WordPress Gallery on WordPress 4.7

    Hi there,

    There looks to be an issue with the combination of WordPress 4.7 and v. 1.5.8.2 of Easy Fancybox where when you add in a “Caption” to an image that is included on a page as a WordPress Gallery, the Title in the lightbox is not displayed.

    To reproduce this issue:
    1) Create a page
    2) Add images as a WordPress Gallery (that have captions set within the image meta)
    3) Set images to open as file for WordPress Gallery

    Images will open in a lightbox, but image titles will not display.

    This issue has been tested and is not present within WordPress 4.6.1.

    Thanks for your assistance,
    Sean

    Hi Sean, thanks for the report and detailed info. I’ll try to reproduce the issue and come back to you.

    Indeed, it looks like WordPress has changed its markup for galleries. The title is simply ignored and not present in the source code any more. The result is that FancyBox does not have access to the title and will (if allowed and available) show the Alt text instead.

    Will have to think about a work-around…

    Could you try https://wordpress.org/plugins/restore-image-title/ and tell me if that changes things for the better?

    Hi RavanH,

    That did do the trick in connecting the image title to the lightbox title location again. Nice work around!

    Thank You!

    Best,
    Sean

    Hi RavanH,

    I have a similar problem: my captions are not displayed anymore (since a couple of months). I already tried the “restore-image-title” plugin which displays correctly the title, but I want my captions back. Any ideas?
    (I also read through the plugin incompatibility stuff. E.g., I disabled my Google Analytics plugin and the “outbound links …”, but this did not change anything. I am hoping that I have not made a stupid misconfiguration.)

    Sample blogpost: https://blog.webernetz.net/2017/06/01/palo-alto-lldp-neighbors/
    Note the 4 images with a caption that is displayed when moving over while not displayed anymore with the fancybox.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi @johannes4711 captions have never been displayed as title in FancyBox. You’ll need to give the image the same alt (or title, with Restore Image Title plugin actvated) as caption text if you want the title in FancyBox to be the same as the caption.
