Caption not working as intended

When adding an image with captions the format of the code is not according to the codex. On some sites this will work but on some it doesn't.

The caption should be placed within the opening [caption] tag and not after the img tag (before the closing caption tag). (As explained within the codex). Tested on WP3.8 and the latest nightly build. Both have this behaviour.

$shcode = '[caption id="' . $id . '" align="align' . $align     . '" width="' . $width . '"]' . $html . ' ' . $caption . '[/caption]';

should be changed to

$shcode = '[caption id="' . $id . '" align="align' . $align     . '" width="' . $width . '" caption="' . $caption . '"]' . $html . '[/caption]';

  • Keywords needs-codex added

That line was changed in [20679] to use the new format with better support of HTML tags in captions (see #18311).

The change should not be reverted, Codex should probably be updated instead.
