The new CMS Lightbox Gallery feature is fantastic, but one area that I feel it is lacking in is the ability to offer a CMS Caption field to be displayed within the gallery.
I have a decent attributes-based solution here, in this cloneable;
Please add this feature ASAP!
If you need captions for multi-image field from a CMS item, you can enter some JS code to automatically add the images ALT description as a caption.

Building a site for a photographer - REALLY need this feature as captions are very important for my client.
So sad not to implement this yet. Seems like a pretty simple add in 3 years. This platform is SUPER expensive and they should throw a little of that rev to development. Hoping F'insweet does it for them soon.
Please take it a bit further: we need a fully customizable (style and layout) CMS lightbox.
i'd like the captions in lightbox to display beneath the images--NOT on top of them! The edges of my photos are important and i hate that the caption becomes part of the image. please offer an option for this!
This would be great to have natively! The current workarounds are too complicated.
And we need them in rich text!
This feature was apparently coming "soon" in 2019. It's 2021 - where is it, and many of the other missing CMS features? https://discourse.webflow.com/t/add-captions-to-a-lightbox-video-gallery-with-cms/91204/2
I’ve tried playing around but unless I’m missing something obvious it doesn’t seem possible. The only alternative is to offer multiple single image uploads within the CMS.
This is like Obvious 101... come on guys, use that $140 million Series B where it counts. Not on the flashy stuff, but on the everyday things that will retain your users. My clients and I will happily jump ship the second someone beats you on these basics with ultimate customizability. $2.1 billion valuation... yet no ability to do captions for sets of images? Hmm...
Is there any update on the timeline for this feature? Really slows things down to have to implement a workaround :(
Isn't this a feature yet?
