I'm having an design issue with a screenshot of a plugin WP Two Factor Authentication with Telegram. I just update the screenshots and captions and saw that the captions stay behind the thumbnails when overflow the 600px limit given to the CSS class .plugin-screenshots .image-gallery-slides, wouldn't it be better if the text pushes down to avoid this defect? Here's the defect:

I changed the value to 650px just for testing purposses and works great:

In 4888.diff:

This diff sets the slide parent to display: table-cell and its parent to display: table . (Browser Support Chart)

Why was it happening?
We have hardcoded values for the slide max-height: 600px and the image max-height: 550px. This was done to make sure large images didn't extend too far down the page and make the slider hard to use. If the captions would be larger than 50px, it would hide under the bottom bounds of the slide.


  • I considered a JS solution where we could get references to the image and the caption to obtain the height and adjust the max-height property for the image but the JS (in part because its React) makes it a bit messy to gracefully store and read the DOM references.
  • We are also looking to replace the slider completely, so I didn't feel it necessary to invest too much time. See #2273.
