Is there a way to add text to the light box that opens?
When you click on an image a lightbox image grows bigger in the same window. I would like to add a small text field in it that could handle a link or some short html
You can go to Media > Library > Edit a photo then add a description. I tested this and the anchor link doesn’t work on the lightbox view. Let me tag the rest of the support team to help us out.
I manage to find a solution but it is a bit complicated. Instead of adding a link on the description like this
you should use this one
