Haven’t had any responses in the past day, so I’m guessing that this issue of controlling captions may not be relevant for many of you. That said, I’ll update all on my investigation in the hopes that I can get a solution OR find an alternate stack.
I continued my search and ultimately found a post from last June titled “Photo and PhotoPro from Weaver’s Space”. If I’m reading it correctly, “there currently isn’t any setting to control the lightbox caption settings.”
Interesting since Weaver’s Space (Photo Stack for RapidWeaver) says:
Have full control over both thumbnail and lightbox captions. Also alt and title tags for SEO and Accessibility.”
[The features list for PhotoPro says exactly the same thing.]
@joeworkman Joe, is my understanding correct or did I misread/misunderstand?
Regardless, I still have a problem to solve and I currently can’t see a way to do it with the Photo Stack. Once again, I want control over the the style/color/placement of the caption in both the thumbnail and zoomed modes.
I’ve re-uploaded the screenshots, this time with comments for clarity.
I notice that a couple of other stack developers who also frequent the forum, so I’ll ask:
@willwood Will, is ProGallery my solution? Does it offer such control over captions?
@instacks Jannis, how about the unabashedly “kick ass” Gallery Stack 3?
Many thanks to all who view this and any who take the opportunity to respond. And, if you’ve discovered another way to do this—or need to correct any misapprehensions on my part—please chime in!
