Gallery with visible image title, caption and description
Open

  • Mariya started the conversation

    Hi! 

    I would like to configure gallery so that when the user clicks on the image and it opens in full size, I would like to show image's  title, caption and description underneath. Could you tell me how could I get this effect? I would appreciate your help very much! Thank you!

    Kind regards,

    Mariya

    Hey Mariya!

    We dont have such an option in Salient , though i have noted this in the wish list for future updates. 

    Thanks

    Hi,

    same request ! +1

    While waiting for an option, could you tell me where to change the img code of the gallery because I think if we add a title attribute then prettyPhoto may add it into the lightbox ?

    Thanks for you help

    Hey Eric!

    Unfortunately it would modding in multiple files - but the next update should include an option to do something similar.

    Cheers

    Was the asked by me feature implemented in the latest update of Salient? Please explain how to set it up. If it was not implemented, please let me know when you plan to release a new update with this feature. Thank you!!

    Kind regards,

    Hi there,

    yesterday I downloaded and installed your awesome theme.

    I only have one question which relates to this topic.


    Is there a possibility to use the nectar slider with captions below the slides, as I do not want the captions to

    show directly in the slides.


    Thanks in advance!


    Regards

    Hey Ben,

    I am afraid we dont have such an option.

    Thanks

  • [deleted] replied

    Too bad. Thanks anyway.


    Above it was mentioned that you might implement such a feature in the near future.


    Could you please tell me, if and when this feature might be available?


    Thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    There is an Caption option in Lightbox Image Gallery added so you can use it.

    Thanks

  • Mike replied

    I have the Display Title/Caption? check box checked \'yes\' in the image gallery settings and no captions/titles are showing up in lightbox. Currently using v6.1. Any suggestions?

    Hey ,

    Please update to Salient 6.1.3 and Visual Composer 4.7 by following this guide: https://themenectar.ticksy.com/article/3218/
    Thanks


  • Mike replied

    I checked the changelog and noted that the functionality I\'m looking for was added in 5.5. However, I updated to Salient 6.1.4 and Visual Composer 4.7 as you suggested and I\'m still not getting any meta data displayed when images are clicked on.

    Perhaps I\'m misunderstanding what \"Added support for captions in lightbox images\" means. I thought that meant captions would display on images after they\'ve been opened in a light box

    This is an example page http://www.mvp.aero/oshkosh-2014/.

    Hey ,

    No we dont have that option as i can see it turned off in style.css as well . See screenshot: http://prntscr.com/8ehf79 .

    Thanks

  • Mike replied

    Well that was a confusing response... Could you please clarify - Does salient not have that option or is it turned off? If it\'s turned off, would you be so kind as to tell me how to turn it on since I obviously am having trouble finding the setting?

    Thanks

  • Mike replied

    For anybody else following this... After some messing around I noticed the \'description\' text will display on the bottom left of the image in light box however the \'title\' and \'caption\' are still not displaying.

  • [deleted] replied

    In order to make the \"description\" text visible when an image has been expanded to full size in the lightbox, insert this code in the custom css section:

    .pp_description {

    display: none;

    }

    There\'s no way to display \"title\" or \"caption\" as far as I can tell.

  • Mike replied

    Thank you sir. It seems this ticket has been deemed unworthy so I appreciate the help!

    Hi,

    I'm not sure where to find the "Caption option in Lightbox Image Gallery".  I am using Version 8.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I thought this tread was about getting title, caption and/or description on the full size / "prettyPhoto" display?  I'm using Gallery Type "Touch Enabled & Spaced (Flickity)", so it is displaying a caption on the full size photo that I am actually looking for.

    Thanks!

    @loneprairecamp, 

    Full Size image cant have a caption at the moment . Please avoid asking questions on public tickets . 

    Thanks

    Has this been updated yet, it's been a few years? Not being able to show any descriptive text anywhere on light box opened images is a real pain. Any text will do, caption, description or title using the single image method.


    If not, how do i disable the salient lightbox and instead use a lightbox plugin that does contain this easy feature?

  • revenaugh replied

    +1 for descriptive text under my lightbox!
