To display images title and description in the gallery post, you log in to Dashboard > Posts > Edit Post Gallery, then click Edit Gallery link > Select the image you want to show the title & description. Take a look at the Gallery Settings section on the right hand side, you can add and edit the title as well as description here.

Hi Dominic,
thank you for your fast answer. Sorry, but that’s not what I meant. The images in the gallery allready have titles and descriptions and it works fine on frontpage / social wall. But with in the gallery post itself no titles are shown by default.
Please take look at your demo: http://demo.designwall.com/dw-fixel/?p=189

My question was: Is there a way to show titles and description in the post like on the frontpage?

Hi bschmidt,
To resolve this issue, you can open up the functions.php file in themes/dw-fixel folder, find the code below (around line 310):

$output .= "'>";
$output .= "<img src='".$full_url[0]."' />";
$output .= "</div>";

… and change it into this:

$image = get_post( $img_id );
$output .= "'>";
$output .= "<img src='".$full_url[0]."' />";
$output .= "<div class=\"carousel-caption\">
<h4>".$image->post_title."</h4>
<p>".esc_html( $image->post_excerpt )."</p>
</div>";
$output .= "</div>";

Hope this helps!
