My company, sixty4media offers custom WordPress designs, installations, development and tutorials… read more here.

The latest in my WordPress Screencast series is a quick look into how I get captions under my photos in order to give proper attribution. This is basically just the “behind the scenes” setup of the plugins. Once this is setup it’s as easy as clicking the quicktag for the alignment you want then filling in the “NAME” slots with the proper attribution.

If you have having trouble viewing the embedded video, head over to my Viddler profile to try and watch from there.

Tools used in the video: AddQuicktags Plugin, WordPress, CSSEdit. View my previous screencast about how to move around your Categories box in your Dashboard for editing a post or browse my entire WordPress category.
