Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » NextGen Gallery Caption Issue

  • I have installed the NextGen Gallery plugin and everything seems to be working just fine except for the lack of the caption on each picture showing up.
    Under Gallery Settings, I can dictate the size of the thumbnail I want by clicking “Override thumbnail settings” and putting in the dimensions. However, when I do that, the caption does not show up under the thumbnail. I need it to show up under the thumbnail. It shows up once you click the picture and expand the size, but not under the thumbnail.
    Under Gallery settings and the NextGen Basic Thumbail tab, I can choose a template named gallery-caption.php, but the size of the thumbnail is too small. I attempted to find where in the css the size of this caption is dictated with no luck.
    So to summarize: I need a photogallery where there are 3 pictures in each row at 293px W x 225px H with a caption under each picture…
    Help!!!!

    That depends on your theme/template

    I can get the pictures the proper size that I want (293×225), but the caption doesn’t show up….

    @aoleary10 – Have you tried re-sizing the gallery’s thumbnails then using the “caption” template?

    – Cais.

    caption template?

    oh! caption template (gallery-caption.php)….
    that is an option, but I can’t find where to modify that php file (or stylesheet)

    @aoleary10 – What is it you are trying to accomplish that needs modification of the template and/or Custom CSS … perhaps I missed something in this topic?

    I need it to look just like that except I need a caption under each picture….

    try the following shortcode:
    [nggallery id=1 template=caption]
    (change the id value to your gallery id).

    @grosner55
    [nggallery id=1 template=caption] is already used on the page…the caption still doesn’t show up…

    Any other help out there?

    The <span>hello world caption goes here</span> tag is missing from your output. This tag follows each of the thumbnails “a” tag that looks like this:
    < a href > < /a >
    tag for each photo. Try disabling any plugins that could be conflicting. If that does not solve the issue, it’s probably a theme conflict. Hopefully you are also using the latest Nextgen Gallery.
