Gallery Caption workarounds for 7.1?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I had gallery captions that displayed fine when I first published, then some of them disappeared the second day, now none of them show when viewing on a desktop. All seem to display on mobile. I have tried different section colors, gallery layouts, turned captions on and off, tried lightbox mode, etc. They show in edit mode, but do not show in my browser. I skimmed this entire thread and am wondering if someone can give me an update. Is the js and css code still necessary to display captions? Is there no alternative for a personal site without js capability? Thank you.

Can you share link to page where you have problem?

https://storytellermichael.com/press.  Photographer credit is in the description for each image. For me displays on mobile, but not desktop. Mixed results on other devices. Thank you.

It shows fine to me on desktop

Remove ALL code from header? 

Sure

 

(Remember.. goal is, only to show captions in Lightbox mode, and to captions change instantly when going from one image to the next. I dont mind "ease out", but I dint want delay/overlapping.)

 

Hi, did you figure this out in the end? I'm also looking to remove the "overlapping" description issue when going to the next image in a gallery section.

Or if anyone can help please?

Go to Artists -> Coco Capitan -> scroll down to gallery section, there are 2 images I'm testing with descriptions to show in light box.

I've used the code from brandon in the first page and modified to remove title and for description to show only in lightbox.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re the above, did more investigation...

See photo 1 - The problem: Gallery section, lightbox. When clicking to move to the next image, the description from the previous image stays for 1 second, overlapping the new/current description. 

See photo 2 - The

data-active

tag for the previous item seems to be taking 1 second to change from "true" to "false". Although I haven't figured out why, and why this seems to only affect the description and not the image... In contrast, the data-active for the next/current item changes from "false" to "true" immediate.

Any insight would be much appreciated!

Hello!

I am having very similar problems:

1. I need to put 2 hyperlink-lines into a gallery caption with 2 line breaks, similar to this:

Band A
YouTube (clickable with link)
Presskit (clickable with link)

The css codes I have used do work, but won't show up after saving.

2. There is some text that is scrunched together in mobile view. It is more than one line but somehow the website puts it all on top of each other?

3. The html codes that I have used are showing up for a split second after loading the page. Is there a way to avoid this?

Any ideas? 🙂

Which code did you use? We can check easier

I tried the <span> tag and the <br> or <br/> tag.

in the CSS section I used

@font-face {
    font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';
       src: url('https://static1.squarespace.com/static/6526edcbef608a3828beab73/t/6539155a1aac7e0450b56610/1698239834645/BeVietnamPro-Light.woff');
  }
h1 {font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';}
h2 {font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';}
h3 {font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';}
h4 {font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';}
p {font-family: 'BeVietnamPro';}

/*MULTI-LINE DESCRIPTION FOR GALLERY GRID MASONRY (7.1)*/
.gallery-caption-grid-masonry span {
  color: #898989;
  display: block;
  font-size: .7rem;
  line-height: 1.4em;
  margin-top: 10px;
}

//Gallery Caption CSS

.gallery-caption p {
  text-align: center !important; 
  font-family: BeVietnamPro !important;
  font-size: 1rem !important;
}

@media (max-width: 800px) {
    .gallery-masonry .gallery-masonry-item img {
        height: 100%!important;
        width: 100%!important;
    }
    .gallery-masonry .gallery-masonry-wrapper {
        columns: 1;
        column-gap: 0;
        padding: 10px;
        height: auto!important;
        display: block!important;
     }
    .gallery-masonry-item-wrapper {
        height: auto!important;
    }
  
    .gallery-masonry-item {
        position: relative!important;
        padding: 10px 0!important;
        transform: none!important;
        width: 100%!important;
        display: block;
       }
}

a {
text-decoration: none !important;
}

@media screen and (max-width:767px) {
/* Logo size */
.header-title-logo img, .header-title-logo a {
    left: 1000px
}
}

body {-webkit-hyphens: manual !important; -moz-hyphens: manual !important; -ms-hyphens: manual !important; hyphens: manual !important;  }

In the header section I used

<style>
  .burger-box {
    visibility: hidden;
}

.header-nav {
    position: absolute;
    right: 30px;
     top: 10px
}
  
  </style>

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

 

In the footer section I used

<script>
  $(document).ready(function(){
  $("p").each(function(){
    $(this).html($(this).text());
  });
});
</script>

<style>
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}
  </style>

You mean text break for these images? Can you keep <br/> tag? We can check it easier

Hi @brandon, thank you so much for this. It's helped a lot. I just realised I don't know how to make the box containing the description bigger (or higher) when the caption contains more text. Which line should I change in the CSS if I want the height to adjust automatically based on the length of the text? Thanks again and take care!
