Today I finally found time to do one last remaining thing for this site: fork the nextGEN gallery plugin to allow for customizable captions for lightbox. If you click on the random image on the right, you’ll notice the caption includes the name of the gallery from which it’s taken. Simple little change, but it required customizing the templates. My change lets you enter the caption format within a setting.
I’ve contributed the code back to the project via bitbucket here, but I’m really not sure whether or not they’ll want to use it. It’s a pretty big script and although I was careful not to introduce any regression risk to the millions of users the plugin already has, it’s entirely possible they’ll have no use for it.
Anyway, it’s there if you want it. :)
[EDIT: I heard from Michael Weichert who seems to think it'll make it into a version at some point. Cool.]
