Gallery Section Image Descriptions in 7.1

Recommended Posts

I have a gallery section (Grid:Masonry) that I am trying to get the description to display.  It says in the FAQ that descriptions will not display for images in gallery section, but they use to display on the gallery pages & Summary pages, but I can't use that functionality now, apparently.  How can I get descriptions to show up for these images?  In hover or lightbox, I don't care.  I don't understand how functionality went backwards and not forwards here.  

Is there any hope for the descriptions to be displayed in the near future?  Is this functionality gone forever?  Any help would be wonderful.

7.1 galleries don't support the option for titles or descriptions right now. 😞I think I saw on a thread that the Squarespace team was looking into adding them for 7.1 galleries but it's not a guarantee.
