Grrrr…I updated the NextGEN gallery plugin, and it wiped all of my code that created a nice border and caption around images that where supplied with the parameter template=caption in the short code (see the post NextGEN Template Code Gives Images A Caption And Fresh Look for more info).
The border made the images look nicer, and the caption was very helpful at explaining what the image is all about!
Hopefully I can replace this code rather easily. I have regular backups which I save in Google Drive, and I wrote down the code changes I made on the page WordPress Plugins That This Site Uses.
Expect to see the captions back soon!
After playing around with the NextGen plugin PHP files and this sites CSS style file, I have created what NextGEN calls a “template” for a single picture (in NextGEN lingo, a singlepic), which adds a border and the caption to the image. Which by-the-way, is a feature that NextGEN lacks, and should implement themselves!
Here is what images look like now, with the custom template applied.
Which, IMO, is a big improvement over what they used to be. They now have a nice, semi-transparent border, and include a caption below the image (which is associated with the image in the NextGEN gallery page). This is what they used to look like:
But…it’s not perfect…yet. As you can see below, in certain situations the images to go crazy.
I am no full-time website designer. Playing with HTML objects like div’s and getting the right float setting, width, height, margin, alignment e.t.c can be a guestimate at the best of times. I will hopefully work out how to fix this sometime soon…
Note that this custom template has been disabled for the images in this post, otherwise you’d get the mirror-in-a-mirror look which would be utterly confusing.
