Hi

I?ve tried to add the CSS code but nothing happens
and I cannot add the JS code since I only have the basic subscription  so I don't have access to the tool code injection.
Any help?

Update 5/26/2020: Squarespace has added the ability to add image descriptions/captions to 7.1 gallery sections. See here. There are some limitations, such as not appearing in lightbox view and not sup

Has Squarespace hinted at when they will make image captions readily available? It's ludicrous that it's not, knowing Squarespace has a trillion sites requiring this very basic feature. 

Hi @NuprinBoy. You understood correctly. You can control which galleries get descriptions by sending a CSS selector to the function. In your case, try this: In the first line of code in the funct

You need to insert both CSS & JS.

Hi @brandon

First of all, thank you so much for helping many people solving the caption problem. I'm a very beginner to Squarespace, and was able to add proper credits to the light box thanks to your code. But I had encounter the same problem as @IvanOB

One problem, I can't correct is that when the next or previous image is chosen in lightbox, the caption for the previous image still shows for 1/2 seconds overlapping with the caption for the current image. The only way i have managed to fix is by making a black box around the caption as shown below.

Would you please help me to solve this problem?

Thanks for the message @kinapark. I'm aware of the issue. I just have to find the time to fix it and, as you know, it's a bit rough out there at the moment. I do hope to tackle this soon.

Hi Brandon, Guys, 

I have tried pasting the captions-work-around code into the CSS editor and nothing happened. wish i had known squarespace dont provide image captions before i signed up!  I am really bad at coding and really appreciate you helping out with this. 

Ideally i would rather have them display underneath the images and not in an overlay as shown in your demo. 

I saw your fix for this and tried that out. and again nothing. 

any advice?

🙏

Hi @j03ie. It is necessary to add both the CSS and the JavaScript. Take another look at the instructions and be sure you follow them fully, both parts. If you get it up and running, changing how the captions display is a matter of editing the CSS to your liking.

Hi Brandon,

Thank you for this great solution to the lack of Lightbox captions in 7.1 - I have successfully added captions to my slideshow.

I was wondering if you know a way to have the caption break into 2 lines. My slideshow is an artist portfolio so the captions have the image title which I'd like to display on the first line and then size, year etc. which I'd like to display on a second line of text. Any thoughts?

Also, I am having the same caption overlap problem as some others in this forum:

Thanks so much for your help!

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for this workaround. It's super annoying this isn't supported natively yet, but also super appreciated to have solutions like this posted, which when I try them, just work! You've made me very happy, thank you! 🙇‍♂️

Brandon, thanks SO much for this thread. You're my hero.

Please add me to the list of folks looking for a lightbox caption lag workaround.

Thank you!

This is an update to let you know that I've added just a couple lines of CSS to fix the issue with the lightbox caption delay/lag issue. The lines are added at the end of the CSS in the original post. They are:

transition: opacity 0.1s ease-out;

.gallery-lightbox-item[data-in=false] .gallery-item-description {
  opacity: 0;
}

Special note to those who mentioned the issue: @kinapark , @IvanOB , @ed.design , @JohnS123

Hi @brandon, I can't seem to get this right, even though your demo shows its do-able.

I have copy and pasted both codes and put them on my website.

No descriptions are coming up, but I am getting the text of what I saved the photos as, see example attached.

Is it just as simple as copy and pasting the two codes? Or do I need to edit the code to match my website?

I only have one gallery in use (which is a simple slideshow), so I thought it would automatically apply to it.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

hi @brandon, Do you know if it is possible to get the same codes but for Tablet and Mobile ? I tried with @media only screen and (max-width: 640px) below but it messes up the desktop view as well.

 

Thank you !

@gabmartinez7: If you're seeing a filename, that is likely because you have not entered description text. See the third bullet point under "JavaScript" in the original answer.

However, if that's not the cause, then could you provide a link to the page in question?

@Charlest93: I'm not sure what you mean by "get the same codes". Having said that, I did take another look at the CSS for the "Slideshow" gallery type where thumbnails are displayed, and I realized that things weren't displaying quite right on mobile. So I made a small adjustment. You could try using the updated CSS in my original post. If that doesn't work, can you provide a link to the page in question?
