Re: Links within image captions

Hi Lisa and thank you so much for the very quick reply!

The image would live on a news website. I believe the caption wouldn't be very long. The caption would appear under an image. The text of the caption would include text that would be linked to either an internal or external website/page.

Hi Jo,

So would this be an image showing on the page, and then a link to the image
caption right under it (instead of the actual caption)? Would the image
caption be short or very long?
