Topic: Captions not showing up

Hi
I have no clue as how to post a new message so I will use your message and hope someone answers smile
I also have no caption showing up.
I put the titles/captions in the Media Library, but none is showing up.
The only thing that shows up are the numbers of the images.
Now I have no clue as what to do to make this working.
Can someonen enlighten me how to get this working??

Click the forum title you wish to create a new thread in and then click 'Post new topic' at the right hand side of the page above the post dates. See this screenshot.
I have split your post into a new topic.

I put the titles/captions in the Media Library, but none is showing up.

WP-SimpleViewer uses the Media Library 'Caption' text fields to populate the SimpleViewer gallery's <caption> tags.
After adding captions in the Media Library, you will need to 'Edit' the post containing the gallery and click 'Update' to rebuild your gallery's XML file with the new captions.
You may also need to clear your browser's cache before reloading your gallery in order to see the changes.

I presume that the CDATA will fill itsself with the captions I gave in Media Libarty?? But still no captions. So what am I doing wrong??
Thanks for taking the time to answer.

That is correct. Make sure you enter the captions in the 'Caption' text fields (rather than in the 'Title', 'Alternate Text' or 'Description' text fields).
After adding the captions to the images in the Media Library, did you edit the post that contains the gallery and click 'Update' to update the post and rebuild the XML file? This should work (and does on my installation with WordPress v3.4.1 and WP-SimpleViewer v2.3.0).
Try adding captions to the images during the upload process (rather than afterwards) to see if this makes a difference for you (though it should not).

Thanks a million.
It is working. Some finetuning with Typografie, but I will find that out.
