The EasyImageCaption plugin generates captions from images' TITLE or ALT tags in articles and displays them below (or above) the images.
It has been developed as an alternative to Joomla!'s built-in javascript caption solution as well as to the JCE editor's caption plugin.

  • Get this

Before displaying a website the EasyImageCaption plugin searches the article text for images. It then takes the content of an image's ALT or TITLE tag (depending on your plugin settings) to use it as the image's caption. You may restrict the "captionizing" to certain articles or certain images through the plugin's parameters.
The behaviour is very similar to Joomla!'s built-in caption solution, but it does not use any javascript.

EasyImageCaption requires PHP 5.2+ and Joomla! 1.5+. The Joomla 1.6+ version works with Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.

Reviews are welcome.

Easy solution of daily tasks

Posted on 23 January 2014

This decision, that I so long looked for. Earlier was to add captions to images on a site painfully long, now clicking of one button I can add captions to all images at once. It is simply excellent! The floppy and extensive functionality does this plugin not by the replaceable daily solution of my problem.

Cool app!

All I can say about this app is: It works great! Strongly recommend it.

Thanks to the developers!

This is an excellent plugin. Very easy to configure and works smoothly. But when I applied to an image in a K2 item it produced two captions and I didn't find a way to fix it. I know it wasn't programed to work with K2 (that's why I rated it excellent after all), but K2 is also an excellent component and it would be nice if this two extensions could work together.

Owner's reply: I have just sent you a CSS hotfix through e-mail. Thanks for the kind review anyway.

Great plugin!

Thanks so much to the developer, this is a really great plugin, I was afraid it wouldn't work on my Joomla! 3.1 site, but it did! and it just saved me so much time!

Easy to install and work with. I needed a modification for my site and Thomas helped right away. Thank you, this is fantastic.

This extension can make automatic captions for your images and this works very well. You can customize the look and set many options.

Just don't forget once to set exclusion and this plugin will do all the work.

I prefer this one over Joomla "caption" class since it's more universal and robust solution.

Very nice and easy to use plugin. What is most interesting - there is no other free or paid plugin that adds caption in Joomla images. Great job and keep on adding more features! :)

The standard of some Joomla extensions never ceases to amaze me, and Easy Image Caption is no exception.

It does what you'd want, how you'd want achieving a perfect balance of simplicity and functionality.

Another essential plugin.

Simple and efective

This a simple and efective way to show captions. I'm using JCE and there is no incompatibilities.

Good work!
