Support » Plugin: Ultimate Lightbox » Slideshow titles and descriptions are the ALT field

  • Greetings,

    I’ve installed the Lightbox Ultimate plugin and have had success with getting it working well within the theme. The issue is that the title and description that show up on the images within the slideshow are pulled directly from the ALT field. Changes to the description and title of the images do not change what shows up on screen.

    The image caption DOES output to the gallery on the page.

    Thank you!

    Hi phil,

    It does indeed pull the alt text for images in a WordPress gallery. We’ll make a note to see if we can update it to make it so that it pulls the title on the overlay from the actual Title field for the image in the Media Library.

    Ah, thanks for the info! I appreciate the possibility of looking into it.

    Aside from that item, I really like the lightbox — it’s simple and easy to customize. Thanks for your work on the plugin!
