This is a test gallery for displaying photos with the Slickr Flickr plugin using gallery format with captions and descriptions on.

Here is a gallery I successfully used several months ago. The lightbox displays captions and descriptions perfectly (see the first two photos for example). I used the code (with the proper square brackets and quote marks):

slickr-flickr type=gallery flickr_link=on size=medium tag=weekend30oct10 sort=date direction=ascending descriptions=on

[slickr-flickr type=”gallery” flickr_link=”on” size=”medium” tag=”weekend30oct10″ sort=”date” direction=”ascending” descriptions=”on”]

Here is a gallery I just tried. The lightbox has a formatting problem for the descriptions (see the first photo as a portrait example and the photo directly underneath it as landscape example). I used the code:

slickr-flickr type=gallery flickr_link=on size=medium search=sets set=72157626831477398 descriptions=on

[slickr-flickr type=”gallery” flickr_link=”on” size=”medium” search=”sets” set=”72157626831477398″ descriptions=”on”]

It doesn’t seem to be a matter of portrait or landscape formatting in the lightbox, because both orientations display perfectly in the first lightbox and both orientations have the description formatting problem in the second lightbox.
