    Hello everyone,

    I have been trying for what seems like the entire night to figure out how to add a "caption" to next gen galleries wordpress plug in and can not figure it out at all!

    Does anyone know if this is possible? I put the information in the "Alt Text/Description" box which works, but when you hover over my image it fills the entire screen with the text that's in the "Alt text/description" box.

    If there was a simple "caption" box for each image, I don't think this would be a problem.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. I am also not against switching plug-ins (especially after spending the past countless hours trying to work with next gen!) I just am looking for a gallery plug-in that shows single images, has a next and previous button which refreshes the page so the ads also get refreshed and so each picture has a different caption!

    I plan on having something like "top 10 ways to ___" with 10 different images and 10 different texts so a user can browse all 10, one by one and have new ads come up on each page.

    Seems like it shouldn't be too hard to find, but I am seriously out of ideas and out of patience.

    Thanks again,
    -eXclusive

    This is how I would do it:

    Get rid of NGG. I never liked the plugin. It's bulky, and full of errors.

    Use something like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/automatic-featured-image-posts/

    Go into each post that's created, and simply add your content as you normally would with any other post.

    The image will be set as a "Featured Image", and you'll have a seperate post for every image you upload, so you should be able to click Prev/Next using the default pagination that most themes provide.
