Mi problema es el siguiente:
Tengo un slider de imágenes donde muestro el caption sin problema (soporte toolset 02.jpg), pero necesito mostrarlo también cuando se muestra en el lightbox (soporte toolset 02.jpg).

Hello and thank you for contacting Toolset support.

Our Spanish-speaking supporter, Nigel, does not work on weekends. If you don't mind, I'll reply to you on this ticket. If you would prefer to continue in Spanish, let me know and I'll pass this ticket to Nigel.

I am afraid, this option is not available within the Toolset Lightbox. If you need this feature, please suggest it on this form, our product manager will evaluate it and plan it for an upcoming development effort.

As a workaround, you can add the caption to the lightbox using Javascript. The trick is to add a data-title to the lightbox handler. I tested it on a clean install, and I could build it. You can login into my test site with the following URL hidden link

First, I have added a class to the image block to easily target it with Javascript. Check this screenshot hidden link
Then, I added the following code to my content template:

  var figure = $('.my-image')
  var caption = figure.find('figcaption').text()
  var link = figure.find('a')
  link.attr('data-title', caption)

Check the results here hidden link

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
