    Hi… I was wondering if there was a way to show the image description in the lightbox. Thanks!!

  • Todd,
    At the moment it looks at the title attribute, but I guess you are requesting it to look at the alt attribute.
    Can you please send a example link to make sure, I may be able to incorporate it into a future release.

    Yeah i have the same problem, works fine, except that it only displays the 1 of X
    I filled out the title, alt, and caption to see if it was just missing something but still no luck. It just isnt populating the caption or title field in the code

    (from the html displayed on the page)

  • Brian, can you link to an example.

  • Hi,
    I like your plugin! :)
    I was wondering, is there any way to show the full image file? For example if you want to save it…

  • Dimitris, what you see is the full image file, to save it right click “Save Image As…”

    Sorry about the delay, i was out of town. Anyways here is a quick example of where it isnt showing the caption, title or anything other than the number of the image:

    Just used the words for what each of the sections were aka caption is labeled “caption” and so forth.

  • Brian

    Sorry posted the wrong link, it should be sorry.

  • Brian,
    Thanks, I see the problem, I will look at it over the weekend and workout some solution and get back to you.

  • Brian, Todd,

    Upgrade to Slimbox2 Slideshow version 1.2, it will now show the WordPress gallery caption as the lightbox caption.
