Topic: captions not appearing (yes, I searched!)

No matter what, I can't get captions to appear.

I'm using

<image>
<filename>image.jpg</filename>
<caption>test caption</caption>
</image>

... the images work fine, everything else works fine, but no captions appear at all. Suggestions?

By default the captions are white, so if the background is white you need to set the text color to something other than white. Use the 'textColor' XML option: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … tions.html

I should have mentioned: I have it set to textColor='0x000000'

I just noticed it appears if I decrease the # of thumbnail rows.

Is there any way to get the caption to extend across the canvas, instead of just under the thumbs? or at least allow left nav with the thumbs top justified, leaving more room below them for captions? Longer captions are snipped off.

SimpleViewer-Pro allows you put the captions under the main image with the 'captionUnderThumbs' AS option: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … tions.html or you can use the Fixed Layout AS options to put your captions where you require.
