Hi There,

I've got the same question about how to hide captions in a gallery, but make them appear in lightbox when clicked. I'd also like them to take on the styling of the rest of the site.

Hiding the caption isn't much of a problem on your v7.1 site.

Making the captions appear on the lightbox is not easy.

It may be possible through custom code or perhaps a plug-in.

This last bit is for the more technically inclined among us. When the lightbox is on the DOM each image has an alt text that could be used as a basis for creating a caption on the lightbox image.

Thanks. Hiding the caption is no problem, do you happen to have code that will hide it on the gallery but display it on the lightbox? I'm comfortable injecting code or input custom CSS, I just don't know how to write the actual code.
