I finished my blog on viewing the eclipse and noticed that there are no captions when I put one of my photos into the blog. My Japan blog has all the captions I wrote for each blog photo. Is this problem because of the HTTPS switch? Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike,

No, this is not to do with the https switch. When inserting the photos you can choose whether to insert them with captions or without. You need to click on the little icon next to the word Thumbnail to insert a thumbnail with a caption. The icon is of a photo with a speech bubble. Kind of hard to tell I know. If you just click on Thumbnail then you get the result that you have.

Peter,
I tried it with my first photo, Welcome to Fillmore sign. I am leaving both up so you can see it. All it did was add 'Fillmore UT' below the photo. Did not add the info I put up about Fillmore. On my Japan blog all I did was click 'thumbnail' and all my captions were added. I never used this little bubble in 58 blog posts and I always got what I wrote about my photo into the blog photo. Now, no. Something changed. Mike

Hi Mike, certainly nothing there has been changed on purpose. The way it is behaving currently though is the intended way - click in the icon to include a caption. Click on the word "thumbnail" to just have the photo.

Peter: The new window that opens after clicking on the thumbnail contains the caption and description for the Japan photos, but not for the Eclipse photos. That is what changed. (So the caption doesn't show on the main blog view, but only in the new window.)

Hmm I see. Sorry for misunderstanding. In that case this could actually be a problem related to the https upgrade! Will look into it

I gave it a few days and just checked to see if what I wrote for each blog photo about the eclipse is now there. No. But what is even worse, all my blog photos are now minus what I wrote about each photo. This is over 1,000 photos on my blogs and all descriptions are gone. I checked my Japan bog, Iceland blog, Northern Lights, Alaska Cruise, every blog photo is minus what I wrote about that photo.

I hope this is temporary thing as it took well over 100 hours to write descriptions for each photo, post it to my blog in the order I wanted. Mike

Hi Mike,

Yes, it is definitely a temporary thing. I'll try get onto it soon. Shouldn't be a complicated thing to fix.

Peter,
That would be great. I was not looking forward to going back and re-doing over 1,000 photos!

This should be working as normal again.
