How to add lightbox captions in masonry gallery?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.jurajsimkovic.com/projects/slovak-national-theatre

Hi, as the title says, I would like to add specific captions to specific images in my gallery and, this is important, I want them to only appear in the lightbox view. I don't want them to appear under the images when viewed casually on the site, without lightbox.

Most of them are masonry grid-galleries, one of them is a simple grid-gallery.

I have just paid for the personal plan and would like to avoid upgrading and paying for the higher tier business plan.

The picture attached to this post should clarify the look of the captions.

Thank you in advance.

You can use the unique id of the image in lightbox to add the caption using css, but it is a painful process and hard to maintain once you got many images on the site

Could you please elaborate on this process, maybe provide something of a how to guide? I am not proficient with CSS editing - I can't write my own code.

I have to note again, I have the personal plan and would like to avoid upgrading to a more expensive one.

Hi @tuapan

I have the same issue as Jurajsimkovic, I want captions to display on lightbox from my masonry grid which already has your code for hover over captions (thanks!!!)

I need the captions to look like the image attached. Any tips? 

Thanks so much for your help!

@tuanphan done! thanks so much!

Try adding this to Code Injection > Footer

<script>
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {

  function render(checked, index) {
    
    (function(p, show) {
      var map;
      var values;
      var messageValue;
      var messages;
      var name;
      var type;
      var k;
      map = document.querySelectorAll(p ? p : 'section.gallery-section,\x20.gallery-lightbox');
      name = map.length;
      for (; name--;) {
        values = map[name].querySelectorAll(show ? show : '[class*=\x27-item\x27]:not([class*=\x27item-\x27])');
        type = values.length;
        for (; type--;) {
          messageValue = values[type].getElementsByTagName('img')[0]['alt']['trim']();
          if (messageValue && messageValue.includes("png") == false && messageValue.includes("jpg") == false) {
            messages = document.createElement('div');
            messages.className = 'gallery-item-description';
            messages.textContent = messageValue;
            values[type].appendChild(messages);
          }
        }
      }
    })(checked, index);
  }
  render();
});
</script>
