Display File names in a gallery



Hi there,

I'm a photographer and I often upload private galleries for clients with a password so that they can go through a photoshoot and select individual images for retouching, so being able to see the file name as an image title is really important.

I used to use the following code in the individual galleries 'Cog icon'>advanced>code injection box;

Which I got from another user.

I'd then select 'show title' in the galleries settings, refresh the page and voila. But I havent done this in a while and since Squarespace have updated the interface to do this I can no longer find 'show title' anywhere.

I dont know if this effects things but I've just had a look through my site and I also have this same above code in Settings>Advanced>Code injection.

And also I have the following code in Design>Custom CSS

.image-title { display: none; } .image-desc { display: none; }
.image-title, .image-desc, .image-desc-mobile p  { display: none; }

No idea what that is or if its affecting things.

I'm using 'Wells' template, site address here: www.ashholdsworth.com

I suspect this used to work because in the past you'd correctly add a Gallery Block to a standard Page for clients. If you're trying to make it work with a Gallery Page, that's likely to be the issue.

For galleries that are not tucked under an index page, the following code to show the images titles has worked for me in Brine family templates (7.0).

Maybe you can adapt?

/* On non-index accessed gallery pages, display the title and description */

.collection-type-gallery.gallery-design-grid .slide .slide-meta {
    display: block;
    line-height: 16px;
