How can i get the caption under the pictures when i see only the thumbnail? as for now i only see it in the lightbox that displays when pressing the picture.

    Go Modules > Photo Gallery


    Select your specific gallery


    Then Manage Items


    There you will see the items in your gallery. Select the item and then underneath in the Description Field type in your caption. Hit return to save the description. Select another and follow the same process.

    Hello Jakobsen2,

    The photogallery module does not allow for such captions to be under the thumbnails in list view. The description field is just shown when the image is clicked.


    You can probably use some jQuery to add a div under each image, then get the alt text from the img (which is the description) and place that into your new div.


    Hope this helps,
