i've now got it to work using a code i found on another query but that is only when the images are in a 'simple' grid - I'd like it to work for a masonry grid.

Many thanks in advance,



<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
function createNodeCaption(textContent){
	var divElement = document.createElement("div");
	var pElement = document.createElement("p");
	pElement.innerHTML = textContent;
	return divElement;
$( document ).ready(function() {
    var itemGallery = document.getElementsByClassName('gallery-grid-item');
	var itemGalleryLightBox = document.getElementsByClassName('gallery-lightbox-item');
	var countGalleryItem = itemGallery.length;

	for(var i = 0; i < countGalleryItem; i++){
		if(itemGallery[i].getElementsByTagName('p').length != 0){
			var text = itemGallery[i].getElementsByTagName('p')[0].textContent;
			var itemNeedCaption = itemGalleryLightBox[i].getElementsByClassName('gallery-lightbox-item-src')[0];

  figcaption.gallery-caption.gallery-caption-grid-simple {
    display: none;
.style-gallery-lightbox-text {
    padding: 10px 0px 25px 0px;
    display: block;
    position: absolute;
    left: 50%;
    top: 90%;
    width: 100%;
    transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
    font-size: .3em
    text-align: left;

.style-gallery-lightbox-text p {
    width: 90%;
    padding: 10px 15px;
    margin: auto;
    color: white;
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
  @media screen and (max-width:767px) {
.style-gallery-lightbox-text {
    top: 70%;

Hi tuanphan,

I'm having the same problem.

It only works for Simple Gallery, not Masonry.

Any ideas?
