The EasyImageCaption plugin generates captions from images' TITLE or ALT tags in articles and displays them below (or above) the images.
HOW IT WORKS
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.
EasyImageCaption requires PHP 5.2+ and Joomla! 1.5+. A version for Joomla 1.6+ is available, too.
Reviews are welcome.
Look at the download page for the version history.
This solution comes with everything I desire: Easy to install, easy to adjust, easy to use!
It will become one of my top-10-extensions I use on all my sites. Thank you for the great job!
Fully configurable by css-classes I got EasyImageCaption to work and look like my old captions in only a few minutes. Simply a great plugin!
Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in plugins\content\easyimagecaption.php on line 89 on line 92,95,101,104,121
its little annoying
Thanks for your review.
It looks like "split()" is deprecated since PHP 5.3. I haven't come across these warnings yet, because I'm still using 5.2. Will get rid of this function.
Well, but this isn't a mouse-over plugin. The purpose of EasyImageCaption is to show captions below (or above) images. That's what it was made for, so I don't regard mouse-over as a missing feature.
It sounds interesting though... ;-)
For the author, I would submit a request to add the ability to adjust padding for the whole image box, as well as border settings - I had to modify the CSS for that.
For everyone complaining - don't blame this author because other components aren't compatible! My advice? Lose the other ones!!
Sorry, I was not aware of that problem. The feature did work, but there have been a lot of changes to the code since the initial release. So I might have messed that up. Will look into it.
The problem you described in your forum post and your e-mail is NO EasyImageCaption error. It works as expected. The root of the problem is not an error at all, but lies in the way SuperBlogger handles images.
Therefor I consider this poor review as unjustified.
In most cases this plug-in should work handily and the developer was responsive to making a fix to accommodate other plugs (in in my case JUThumbnail 2.2 version - not working with 2.3) that it may conflict with.
Although I don't expect the developer to try and keep up with every add-on that may break as other developers make changes I do appreciate the effort. I'll add this to my list of must have add-ons.
In the Joomla! help forums some people were offering complicated CSS workarounds to this problem. I didn't want to deal with that.
One person in a Joomla! forum mentioned EasyImageCaption.
I tried it, and really like it. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to do a lot of photo captioning, and doesn't like the JCE editor replacement for TinyMCE.
I don't like JCE because I have a dark background on my page and JCE requires, you guessed it, changes to various CSS files, and creation thereof, for you to see white in the edit box if your page has a dark background.
Anyway, thank you again, or as they say in German -- I believe the author is German,
