    I want to build a grid gallery with few lines of decription and not just one line. (without mouseover)

    Is it possible ? When I enter more than one line in all styles just the first line appears...

    Unfortunately it's not possible to make the description text invisible on the HTML5 editor (note that that topic is for our Flash editor). We hope to allow this in the future.

    As a workaround, you may simply cancel the expand option. If viewing a larger version of the image is crucial for you, you can set up pages for each image and use the linking option to send them to a custom made page with your image enlarged.


    If you need any further assistance please let us know.

    As additional information from the question above, I have researched this issue and find many references to skins and a show info "no info" option but cannot find this in my html template skin settings.  Am I missing it?


    Also, I tried to change the text color to the background color and as well with opacity which did not work and does not seem to carry through to the large image when expanded.  Is this my error?

    I am using HTML template and have added Text and Description to all images in gallery but only want this info to be used for SEO or as holder text should the image  not appear.  Is there a way to do this?  Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a feature to Wrap your text, however you can do this manually. Just use the "enter" key to set your text up in the text box so it will format the way you want on your page:

    Hi nuritzunge6,

    Currently, the expand mode will show whatever the gallery style is set to. Your title and description will only show in the expand mode if they show in the basic mode.

    I still cannot seem to find a style that will allow the "title" text to show up in the basic gallery, and "description" text to show up in expanded mode. can you help?

    To show the description upon expanding, simply change the style of your gallery. 

    To change the style, click on the image gallery > Change Style > Edit Style > Select a style that fits your needs.

    In the image gallery, when I enter a description for an image, it shows up automatically along with the title. Is it possible to have the description show up only in expand mode?
