Caption not showing in Post Format Image
|Reported by:||RDall||Owned by:||markjaquith|
After testing the latest version of Twenty Thirteen there has been many improvements Most of which I am very happy to see. But not having the caption below the image of post-format image is a poor design decision. Here is why:
I can see many post the WordPress support forum asking why the captions can't be seen. For example this one: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/twenty-thirteen-image-post-image-doesnt-use-title-alt
If the user decides not to have a caption below there image. Let it be their choice. But asking for a caption in the upload portion of the site and then not displaying is counter intuitive.
I know I might be new to these parts (Trac and WordPress Development in general) But after 7 years as a professional photographer and then another 5 years as a web developer. I implore you to reverse this decision and the confusion it will surely and has already caused.
You could says… Yes that can be added a child theme… And I could do that… But that is not the reason for this request… It is for the large number of people who will think this is a bug, or they did something wrong or will make a frustrated posts to the forums. I am try the prevent that…
