Display image descriptions under images in GRID gallery block?

Question

Hi all,

does anyone know how to get image descriptions to display underneath images in a grid gallery block?

I found CSS that allows you to display image titles underneath each image but descriptions have much more flexibility than titles in how you can edit them and I need that flexibility. Here is the CSS and a short video on how to use it for anyone wondering and what it looks like. It works well but it is made to display titles.

A simple modification might make it reference descriptions in the gallery block instead of the titles but I am unsure how to specifically do it. Or maybe something different all together.


#block-yui_3_17_2_37_1419048882075_5861 .sqs-gallery-block-grid .slide .margin-wrapper .image-slide-title { display: block; }"

I found an answer for this last week but my question was specific to the image Title, not the Description. Here's my modified code:

.sqs-gallery-block-grid .slide .margin-wrapper .image-slide-title { display: block; font-size: 20px; line-height: 23px; padding-top: 5px;}

I suspect if you find the proper class for the description that's being used for your template then something similar should work for you.

thanks for your answers ,,I already had the code for titles, but really can't find any way to show descriptions . . . I don't want to use summary blocks, as my pictures on this page are linked to other pages...Anyway I think I will drop the idea and just show titles !

Another question, do you know how to show titles under images, in a gallery page slideshow?

Thanks again!

Squarespace recently released a feature so that Image Titles in a Grid Gallery Block will display under each image, however Image Descriptions will still only display when the Image is viewed in a Lightbox.

Their guide on this functionality is here:
