How do I change the lightbox caption?


(Christopher Olson) #1

I uploaded a large image for the first time today, and I was surprised (pleasantly) by the lightbox feature. There was just one little problem: I didn’t name the file well, and now I have this obnoxious caption on the lightboxed image.

How can I change the caption?

I tried renaming the file and re-uploading it, but the system’s too smart. It recognized that it was the same image and reused the previous upload, including the less than desirable caption.

Unfortunately the only way to do this at the moment is to tweak the image in some tiny way, rename, and upload. Sorry :sob:

I think we should be taking the caption from the title tag, it seems pretty intuitive. If title tag is there use it, otherwise use image name or whatever.

Any chance this could be looked at again @zogstrip ? I know my users will be asking for it
