It’s amazing to me that this thread has over 30 comments now about the captions not working with the Masonry Gallery and nothing was fixed in the latest update. I provided images, illustrations, comparisons and multiple case studies and tests showing the problem. All that was done is a post about how to “hack” the problem which still doesn’t fix the issue.
So I tried using a third party plugin called Lightbox with PhotoSwipe. This plugin has a feature called: “Get the image CAPTIONS from the database (this may cause delays on slower servers)”. This has worked with other websites using a different builder. But it DOES NOT work with Enfold. The Masonry Gallery cripples any attempt at getting the CAPTIONS. Not the TITLE, but the CAPTIONS.
I pointing out that even in your own Masonry Gallery, THE CAPTION SECTION DOES NOT WORK. When you add images, you can rearrange them and enter captions. These captions don’t show up in the Lightbox because the Lightbox is only pulling the Title of the image.
This problem doesn’t exist in the Gallery widget, only in the Masonry Gallery.
If this is not something anyone cares about, can you at least allow other plugins to access the CAPTIONS to the image? Please?!
Thank you.October 21, 2019 at 7:43 pm #1149951
All I need is to simply have access to the image Caption using Lightbox with PhotoSwipe. But it seems the masonry widget does not allow access to this info from any plugin.

Thank you for following up.
We actually explained the issue in our previous reply:
And provided a solution in the other:
But you refused to implement it. Unfortunately, we are not familiar with the Photoswipe plugin’s code — specifically how or where it gets the caption. If it is from the database, then it is probably from an existing meta information that the images have, so the masonry gallery markup won’t matter. Did you disable the theme lightbox after installing the plugin? Please contact the plugin developer and ask them how the plugin applies the caption, then maybe we can implement the requirement in the masonry element.
