I’m sure it’s user head gap preventing me from finding whatever box to check or uncheck, and I’m sorry for posting such a stupid question.
Despite adding captions and Alt every time I upload an image to the media library, no captions display.

When you go to add Media to get you image in the content editor, Does the text show in the caption box of the WordPress image library?February 21, 2018 at 02:37 UTC - Views: 24 #53480
Yes, it does. Text also displays in the Feature Image view.February 21, 2018 at 02:44 UTC - Views: 24 #53481
Captions never display with Featured Images. Just the way it is set up.February 21, 2018 at 03:01 UTC - Views: 20 #53482
“It” being the theme? Or the latest version of WordPress?
Curious, why not?
Even those who don’t read will read the headline, captions and PS.
Oh well. Thanx for responding quickly.February 21, 2018 at 04:07 UTC - Views: 18 #53483
I believe it is WordPress.
A workaround would be to not use the post featured image, but add the image manually in the posts content, and use Manual Excerpts to add the image in the excerpt too.February 21, 2018 at 06:47 UTC - Views: 15 #53485
Just double checked, and it is indeed a “feature” of how the WordPress API handles the featured image – it will supply only the image, and not captions or other image information. It would be possible to retrieve that, but that would seem to violate what WP expects for standard display of a Featured Image.February 21, 2018 at 15:35 UTC - Views: 8 #53496
That’s an interesting, “feature”.
For the posts I used the workaround Scrambler suggested, which worked fine.
Still haven’t found the excerpts settings, which I’d like to use for a page that lists all of my posts. If I still can’t by late today I’ll start another thread.February 21, 2018 at 16:50 UTC - Views: 5 #53499
If you mean you cant find manual excerpts, if the excerpts box does not show up in your editing page, activate the option in the screen options bar at the top
