Squarespace 7.1 - Gallery Block: make image captions automatically visible on mobile

If you scroll down a little, there's a gallery block. The first image has a caption. However, on mobile, it's not automatically visible until you tap on the "lightbox meta trigger" (small gray dot in the lower right corner). I would like the captions to be visible without having to tap on the trigger first. Is it possible with CSS or JS? Thanks.

No, not solved.

That’s not what it looks like on a real mobile device. Your screenshot is probably from a resized browser window on desktop, not an actual mobile device.

Look at it on an actual mobile device like iPhone or any Android phone, and you’ll see that image captions are not visible.

My screenshot above is from a real mobile device.

No, I didn’t remove it. It’s still there.

Did you make sure to check the first image? Only the first image has a caption and a dot.

Try adding to Home > Design > Custom Css

.sqs-lightbox-slideshow .overlay-description-visible {
  bottom: 0 !important;
}

Let me know how it works on your site
