    Hello,

    I’m curious if you support per media captions in galleries. In particular, in lightbox mode, using the grid style.

    Currently, as work around, I’m using the media title and editing the jquery swipebox JS, manually setting hideBarsDelay to 0. Would you consider implementing per media caption support, or perhaps, exposing hideBarsDelay as a user-facing option?

    Mahalo,

    Hi Kimon,
    Currently the Grid gallery supports media captions, like the following. But not in the lightbox. The lightbox would display the media title.

    I am afraid adding the caption in addition to the title to the lightbox would require modifying the lightbox script.

    Glad I didn’t miss something. From a UX perspective, it feels a little odd to have less information when you go full screen. Ideally the caption + nav controls would be a toggle able overlay. That said, using the Title is a fine workaround. Is it somehow possible to parameterize the hideBarsDelay value, or for me to gracefully override? Looking to exit the business of manually editing minified JS, in production, on every Aesop update =D

    I’m new to Aesop and somewhat new to WordPress. Thanks for the work on this — it’s overall quite lovely!

    The limits of the gallery click behavior and lightboxes in Aesop are probably my biggest challenge getting it to work well on my site. I’d love more control over what is shown in the lightbox, perhaps like dFactory’s Responsive Lightbox plugin. Additionally, it would be great to have it work with the Gallery Link plugin, so that I could set gallery images to link to an external site.

    Hi Sean, I can’t give you an ETA but adding this feature will definitely go into the “To Do” list. Thank you for your support.
