Topic: Updating gallery - captions lost

Is there a way to add new images to an existing gallery without losing all the captions I've already written?  When I create the new XML file, everything is lost on the existing images.

How are you creating your galleries?

Well, I'm using the WP Simpleviewer plugin and using the pro version so I can control the caption placement.  I know that the WP Simpleviewer plugin does not allow for the captions to be saved when creating an updated gallery, so I was wondering if the pro version allows such a configuration.

Does the WP plugin generate galleries?

The latest version of buildGallery will retain captions. Also svManager. You can also update galleries manually and retain captions.

Yes, the WP plugin generates the galleries. 

Thanks for the info.  I know I could doing it with the other tools, but my client will be relying on the WP plugin and doesn't know how to do the others.  Hmmm....
