    I want to add descriptive text inside the gallery with the template=compact style.

    So, I have a page with a bunch of gallery thumbnails. I click on the thumbnail, it opens up a page of that gallery with all the thumbnails. Below these thumbs I would like to add a paragraph describing the work.

    How to do?

    By chance do you mean that you have a page with the "compact album" on it and when you click on a thumb that gallery and all it's thumbs show on it's own page?

    If so then you could add your descriptive text on the page. Just open the page for editing add your text either above or below the gallery short code.

    If this isn't what you mean pls clarify.

    thanks artbiz.

    please take a look at my site to see what i mean.
    i don't want to add text to the page. this would be text below ALL the gallery thumbnails.
    i want separate text inside each gallery.
    i want to be able to click one of those "projects" and have text explaining the project when it opens up all the thumbs for that gallery.
    hope this clarifies.
    thank you for the reply.

    This is the only thing I can suggest:

    Inside "Manage Gallery" there is a place at the top where you can insert descriptive text specific to that gallery. Then use the extended version of the album to have your descriptions display.

    The short code for the extended version of the album is [ album id=x template=extend ]

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. Right, I was aware of that option but really prefer the "template=compact" as I have a lot of projects.
    There must be a way to do this, though. Maybe Alex will chime in.

    Thanks for your help, friend.

    Here is an option that I used once but without links to galleries. I need to add the clients descriptions for their offerings and maybe you can adapt it for your own use. You can see it at Karma Community

    Create a gallery that will hold one image from each gallery. This will be your preview image.
    Resize those images smaller than your gallery images so that your text doesn't go off screen but is wide enough to present your text legibly.

    Add your gallery description text to the image description box and create hyperlink at the end of the text to the specific gallery.
