Adding captions to images in blog posts


Hi there,

For blog posts, I would like images embedded in a blog to show image captions. Is there a way to do this?

When I add a caption on the back end, they don’t display on the front end.




Are you talking about featured images of posts or the images added inside the posts?

Hi Tatyana.

Now that you mention it, I would like to be able to add captions to both the featured image and images inside a post.

To add the caption area for featured image you need to edit the file blog-single-meta.php
I use jupiter child theme so I made the same folders to put the blog-single-meta.php file
in jupiter-child theme folder I add these folders views > blog > components
in components folder I copied the blog-single-meta.php file from jupiter theme folder

After these lines in blog-single-meta.php

$image_src_array = wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id() , ‘full’);

I added these lines

/* Featured Image Caption
$get_description = get_post(get_post_thumbnail_id())->post_excerpt;
if(!empty($get_description)){//If description is not empty show the div
echo’’ . $get_description . ‘’;

Hope this helps
