WordPress 3.4 – Image align problem

  • After upgrading to 3.4 images with caption text are no longer aligned. If no caption is included alignment works.

    How do I resolve this?

Viewing 15 replies - 1 through 15 (of 27 total)
  • It is only happening to new posts and not older existing posts until I edit and update them. Then alignment is lost.

    I have the same issue at seaslugteam.com

    You can see the top posts posted with WP 3.4 do not have the same formatting as the posts prior to 3.4

    I suspect it might be theme-related because if I switch to the default WP theme, the captions work correctly. Is there some fix that can be made to themes to render these new captions correcly?

    Same here, this is a big problem for our magazine. How can we fix it?

    A link may help, without without information it’s difficult to identify what’s going on.

    In the meanwhile:

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Also consider giving this a good read too.

    I was comparing the codes of a previous post and a new one, basically it doesn’t add any more this bit:

    <dl id=”attachment_31587″ class=”wp-caption alignright” style=”width: 310px;”>
    <dt class=”wp-caption-dt”>

    no effect

    switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    the issue resolves itself in the newest version of Twenty Eleven. Captions also display correctly within the visual editor itself. However, switching back to Thesis the caption problem is still there. I suspect it is a theme-related problem combined with the new updates to image captions allowing HTML.

    Thanks for the link, but I was referring to the OP boborg.

    It’s his thread you’ve both hijacked with your problem and frankly that’s considered rude. Please start your own thread instead, you’re both being impolite to boborg.

    Ask yourself, how would you feel if someone walked into your conversation while you had a problem and took over?

    Moving along then.

    @kabitzin and

    switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    That indicates that it’s your theme that’s causing the problem. Looking at your source, you’re running Thesis 1.8.4 with custom CSS.

    Since you can customize the CSS, try using Firebug to identify the CSS and figure out how to adjust it.

    @theupcoming.co.uk, the same applies.

    It’s his thread you’ve both hijacked with your problem and frankly that’s considered rude. Please start your own thread instead, you’re both being impolite to boborg.

    But it’s the same problem…

    Furthermore, does this indicate that only the OP and people with the solution are allowed to participate in the thread discussion? I am just trying to add that I also experienced the same problem and I have listed what did and did not work in my case. Also, I have noticed that when no one else chimes in that they have also had the same problem, the problem gets swept under the rug as being “just your settings”.

    Back on topic, I have been posting about this problem in the Thesis support forum and other users of the theme have indicated having the same image caption problem. I don’t think it is only the Thesis theme, but there is something about WP 3.4 captions that not all themes might support yet. The same HTML-stripping issue that theupcoming.co.uk reports seems to be the cause.

    For the record I have no problem with the follow up posts. In fact it is good to know that I am not the only one.

    I have contacted Solostream which has made the Theme I am using so I will wait for them to respond.

    Thanks boborg. 😉

    Not at all, if you can contribute to solving the OP’s issue.

    The conversation got derailed and we never got details from boborg other than he’s got image alignment problems. So how did you know what boborg’s exact issue was?

    I’m not coming down hard on you, but as I said, put yourself in the other person’s shoes. I was looking for input from the OP. There wasn’t enough information.

    Thankfully he replied, so “No fault, No foul”.

    Now moving along and talking about your specifics: I think it’s your theme or your CSS customizations. I’m not CSS savvy enough to recommend any changes but perhaps someone can recommend a fix?

    Take a look at the For Developers portion of the master list. That portion may indicate what’s going on.

    But it’s the same problem…

    If you knew what the problem was, you wouldn’t be here. Secondly, when a forum moderator asks you to start your own topic, don’t argue. Just do it. We know what works best in these forums and separate topics – even for superficially similar problems – is the most effective approach here. Otherwise, if threads become unmanageable (as this one is becoming) we have no alternative but to shut them down – which doesn’t help anyone.

    Bottom line: Please help us to help you..

    I agree with kabitzin and boborg, it is much better when several people share the same symptoms, it shows it doesn’t depend on your specific set-up only. The more information, the better for us!

    Then you may find that the forum mods and regulars will abandon the topic as it becomes too unwieldy to follow or provide support. Or the topic will be closed. We have tried it your way. It doesn’t work well and what makes it worse is that people then complain that they’re not getting answers.

    good luck 🙂

    I just took on this job as a freelance project and solved it:

    ****NOTE: make a backup of your functions.php file before deleting anything and make sure you have FTP access just in case****

    If you are using a shortcode for your captions: delete this section of code in your functions.php file..

    From : function fb_img_caption_shortcode($attr, $content = null) {

    To: add_shortcode(‘caption’, ‘fb_img_caption_shortcode’);

    Save and update.

    That worked for me.

    Ok, I have moved it to its own topic, and referenced the fix that the Thesis theme creators provided. Basically there was a shortcode conflict that can be resolved in the custom functions php file.

    This might be something to consider, boborg and theupcoming.co.uk if your theme overwrites the default wp caption shortcodes.
