Asked the same question in a support ticket. Here was the Avada team response:
Unfortunately, the Image Element doesn’t support captions like that. We have lightbox where captions are displayed.
Please go to Avada > Theme Options > Lightbox, and look for the “Caption” option, and set this option to ON.
If you want to show the caption, you can use a Title or Text Block element below the Image element.
Or you can add the image using the regular WordPress “Add Media” button, it will show the caption.
The need to add the caption to the image element pronto.adaschParticipantDecember 5, 2018 at 11:15 amPost count: 1
I also need this feature. To use a Text Block Element in this case is quite ugly.42southParticipantMarch 6, 2019 at 2:20 amPost count: 1
Solution. Add a Content box below the image. Choose “classic icon with title”, edit the default item, Insert your caption in the title box and leave the “content box content” empty.sayn0thingParticipantAugust 20, 2019 at 6:41 amPost count: 2
But is there a way to add a coloured block with text ONTO an image? Say in the middle of an image…loutrey123ParticipantJanuary 29, 2020 at 8:53 pmPost count: 1
Agreed – captions should be part of the IMAGE component structure, configurable on or off….very basic and very neededmarklchavesParticipantMarch 4, 2020 at 12:12 amPost count: 557
Here’s an example using custom CSS for an image hover overlay https://codepen.io/marklchaves/pen/GRKVqqG
Here’s one solution using the classic WordPress gallery shortcode which can be added to a Fusion Builder element. You can ignore the extra code for custom captions and styling.
I submitted this custom gallery caption feature to the WordPress core dev team. No movement yet and I’m not holding my breath. I’ll probably turn this solution into a plugin at some point!
Good luck 😉chadlewineParticipantMarch 25, 2020 at 4:42 pmPost count: 4
Crazy that this isn’t an option. Please add it!marklchavesParticipantMarch 25, 2020 at 11:29 pmPost count: 557chadlewineParticipantMarch 25, 2020 at 11:37 pmPost count: 4
ooh, amazing. I will check it out. thank youmarklchavesParticipantMarch 25, 2020 at 11:53 pmPost count: 557
Cool. Just a heads-up that you might only need to know how to apply the built-in WordPress gallery shortcode. It’s pretty useful on its’ own. I give a few example how to use it.
I prefer using this shortcode over the Avada Gallery element. This element has never worked well for me. Here’s a recent example.
But, if you want full control of the captions and you write WP filters like they’re going out of style, then the GIC plugin is for you 😉
