I later realised that the caption moved below the image only on Preview in Firefox. It came back on the image when I logged out of WP Admin.
My intention is to provide credit for the image that I am using. Is there a way to provide image credit along with a caption?
Thanks in advance.July 26, 2016 at 12:29 am #212945TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
That URL doesn’t seem to work.
Are you using a caching plugin? They usually only cache when you’re not logged in, sounds like that might be the issue?July 26, 2016 at 5:44 am #213025Anand
The site was down for several hours (Blue Host), so the URL did not work. It is working now.
Caching Plugin – I am new to all this, so I am just using the media library in WordPress. I do not know what a caching plugin is.July 26, 2016 at 8:59 am #213074TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I’m not seeing this CSS added anywhere on your site: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/caption-below-image/#post-4040
How did you add it?July 27, 2016 at 12:32 am #213241Anand
I added it in the Simple CSS box in the post itself. On reading your comment, I checked and found that the code is very much there.
Your query is relevant – I want this formatting to happen everywhere. Where should the code be added?July 27, 2016 at 9:08 am #213336TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Adding it to the post itself will make it apply to only that post.
To make it apply everywhere, add it to “Appearance > Simple CSS”.July 27, 2016 at 11:17 pm #213464Anand
Adding it in Appearance => Simple CSS has worked. Thanks.July 27, 2016 at 11:49 pm #213475TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperOctober 24, 2016 at 1:14 am #238248Tomasz
since it is really frequent question and pretty populat demand, can’t you guys (GP I mean) just add it to the settings to choose from? I paid for GP Premium to have more options for choosing fonts, colors, etc. and don’t spend extra money on developer on my sites.
I don’t like an idea I have to learn CSS to make it myself since it looks pretty easy to provide us with parametrization we can understand.
So, Tom, when we can expect an update fo GP Premium?
All the best

We just had a massive update to GP Premium.
I help people in the forums with custom CSS every day – if I were to add an option for every snippet of CSS I provide, GP would be the most bloated theme on the internet, which is saying something.
While having options is awesome, it’s just not possible to have them for everything. Sometimes using a little CSS snippet is necessary, and not too difficult, especially when I write them 🙂
That being said, I wonder how many people actually like the way GP does captions vs just having them below the image. Might ask that on our FB page.
Thanks for the feedback!October 24, 2016 at 10:29 am #238415Tomasz
I understand, not every request is massive, but caption on picture? Seriously you find it attractive? Don’t want to push but frankly, look how it looks on my site (theme was upgraded to GP, captions remained as were prviously…), must say, unusable anymore: http://afa.net.pl/2012/12/jak-zrobic-dobry-portret-cz-1/

Ha, yea – that doesn’t work at all.
It was done that way with larger images in mind.
I think moving it below by default is probably a good idea.
For now, have you tried the CSS posted in this topic?: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/caption-below-image/#post-4011October 24, 2016 at 10:37 am #238417Tomasz
I am a photographer with some skills (I did built my sites on WordPress by myself) but I don’t really want to go with CSS and more. I don’t want to spend money on IT support to play with CSS either. Options are fine for me, I wish to have a trigger “Caption below an image Y/N?” ideally 🙂
All the best

It’s very easy to copy and paste CSS, especially using a plugin like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-css/
I’ll most likely make it so it appears below by default in the next version, but that won’t be released for at least a few weeks, so pasting that CSS is your best bet if you need it done right away 🙂October 24, 2016 at 10:57 am #238429Tomasz
Tom, few weeks is fine, I will survive 🙂 Thanks and keep doing great job, love your theme anyway!
All the best
