[Closed] Image caption / copyright info on post-thumb  

   RSS

0

Is there a way without hacking the theme files to output the caption or description field of a post image (on the front page as well as on a single-post page)?

Modifying the template files would be no problem, but if so, we'd want to do it the most maintainable and clean way ...

Purpose: we need to make copyright information / image sources visible along with the image and have added the information in the media manager for each image - it's just shown in the frontend.

thanks for your help

Hello Snail,

Thank you for your question.

It is always good to show proper sources and copyright information about the images used on a website. And we commend you for it.

Answering your question, I recommend you not to modify any theme templates but you can work on creating a child theme. You can override templates of parent theme with the help child theme. For more information on child theme, you can visit the link below.
