Problem with placeholder error and image captions

  • I am editing this post:
    https://www.taxclosure.com/blog/2012/10/16/former-irs-agent-guilty-of-tax-fraud/

    The last 2 photos on the blog need to have captions inserted in the edit image dialog – right now they are just a line of text I typed in below the photo – they look different from the others because of this.

    Have them try to either copy and paste in the image attribution – it’s listed below the image – or type it in – it won’t save.

    If I paste in a photo rather than upload it, the image will show, but I can’t assign a caption.

    Otherwise, if I try to start from scratch and delete the photo and either reload from my laptop or reload it from the gallery within the add media interface, I get the gray box with the placeholder error – looks like this – it shows the descriptor and the caption, but no viewable image.

    btw: seems also that [caption] tags somehow get occasionally disrupted and become usual divs which breaks all markup
