    Hi everyone,

    I cannot seem to figure out how to show the caption on an image when using the image element in fusionbuilder.
    Is this not possible or am I missing something?

    It does show the caption when I just add the image as media in a text element but that’s not really what I want.

    Thanks in advance

    Johan

    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.

    I also need this feature. To use a Text Block Element in this case is quite ugly.

    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.

    But is there a way to add a coloured block with text ONTO an image? Say in the middle of an image…

    Agreed – captions should be part of the IMAGE component structure, configurable on or off….very basic and very needed

    Hi @sayn0thing,

    Here’s an example using custom CSS for an image hover overlay https://codepen.io/marklchaves/pen/GRKVqqG

    Hi @adasch,

    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 😉

    Crazy that this isn’t an option. Please add it!

    Since there hasn’t been any movement from the WordPress community in four years, and crickets here to, I built a plugin for this. It’s up on the WordPress.org plugin directory.

    Shout if you have any questions 😉

    Hi @chadlewine,

    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 😉

    Thanks!

    How is it possible to have figcaption?

    Hi @dia_les1984,

    If you use the WordPress gallery shortcode with default tags, it will automatically use figureand figcaptiontags if your theme supports HTML5 .

    To add HTML5 support to your theme, add this to your child theme’s functions.php file.

    add_theme_support( 'html5', array( 'comment-list', 'comment-form', 'search-form', 'gallery', 'caption', 'style', 'script' ) );

    Reference: https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/add_theme_support/
