    Hey there, i’ll have to ask for your help again:

    When i use the Gallery shortcode on a post i can choose to show or not show the image caption on mouseover, witch is great for me since this website needs to show photo credits. We need to show the image caption on the enlarged version (after the user clicks the image and it shows the enlarged one).

    I can see that the shortcode uses lightbox so i know for a fact that this is possible by adding “data-title”attr to the link, but how can i enable it?

    Thx in advance



    Got it figured out with jquery, the code below will grab the text of the caption and insert it as the title attribute as desired.

        jQuery( "span.collage-caption" ).each(function() {
            var titleattr =  jQuery(this).text();
            jQuery(this).prev().attr('title', titleattr);         

    Anyway, it would be nice to have a similar option to enable / disable this feature on the shortcode` (show title on enlarged image)
