Gallery Grid Description?

Question

Find it really weird that you can add descriptions to gallery images in a grid but they only display if you make the gallery a slideshow

Is there any way to display the image description underneath the image while it's in a grid?

Attached is an image of grid for reference, would love to have some text under those images

Instead of inserting the Gallery directly on your page you have to use a Summary Block.

  • create a Gallery Page that is notlinked to the visible part of yoursite (and disable the page)
  • upload all images and descriptions into this gallery page (enterdescriptions in the little gear iconthat appears when you hover on yourimages)
  • In your public "film" page, remove the current gallery block hat youhave and instead insert a summaryblock. Choose a grid layout andspecify that the summary should bepulling content from the Gallery Pageyou just created.

  • Then choose what you need to display in your summary block: Title,Metadata...

More info on using summary blocks here: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543337-Summary-Blocks

Good luck!

The summary grid block doesn't allow you to have a two column layout on mobile easily and the gallery grid doesn't show descriptions. I'm trying to solve that issue for the summary block on my site if anyone knows a solution (or a way to show descriptions and wrapped titles for the gallery block):
