How does one provide captions for pictures in blogs? I thought that entering a title for the picture would put it in the caption, but no luck.

When you're inserting an image, click on the little icon to the right of words "Thumbnail" "Large" or "Regular".

That will insert it with that size and also with the title as a caption.

I've tried all as per above, however I am not able to add Captions for the pictures. What is it I am missing here?

Thanks

Another way to do it is to insert " caption=this is your caption" at the end of the entry for your picture between the 'jpg' and the ]

For example between the brackets [ ] insert: img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/958080/large_20181103_1320663.jpg caption=Reflection

The problem with this solution is that it only works for this particular blog and not for other blogs if you want to use the same picture.

I simply write the caption under the photo as part of my blog entry - that way I can format it (I like my captions in bold)

In order to insert the caption directly by clicking on the icon, it has to have a name. In the case of photos imported from VirtualTourist, the name will be the caption that we put on the photo in VT. Otherwise, probably the name is the number that the camera puts on the photo. When you import photos into this website, you have to name them in order to have them have a caption. The name becomes the caption. Anything other than the name of the photo will not show as the caption.

Actually they call it "title" , not "name" here.

Ah - yes. I was trying to think of what I would call that field. So Name is really the TItle and the Title becomes the Caption.
