    Hi everyone!

    I'm really new to all blogging so please forgive me if I ask a stupid question. I really tried to get an answer before posting here.

    I added a picture to my post recent post and I remember that I wrote a pic caption but it does not appear anywhere. Does anyone know how can I make it appear? I chose Twenty Fifteen theme.

    Thanks a lot!

    The blog I need help with is boliviavolunteer.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi Kasia!

    There is a difference between setting a Featured Image and inserting an image into your post. I believe that difference might be responsible for the confusion.

    When you upload an image to your site, you can add some information such as caption and title. But that information won't actually appear until you insert the image into one of your posts or pages using the "Add Media" button in the editor. I'd recommend following the instructions here to insert an image into your post:

    You can also find some more information about Image Settings here:

    It looks like you currently have a Featured Image set for your "Why Bolivia" post. This is different than an image you insert into a post. Each post can have one Featured Image, which is used to represent the content or mood of the post. Each theme will display Featured Images differently. I'd recommend reading over this article for some more information:

    And you can find information about Featured Images specific to the Twenty Fifteen theme here:

    I know this stuff can be a bit daunting at first, so please let me know if you'd like me to elaborate on anything. I'm here to help, and happy to do so!

    Hi Ryan!

    Thank you for such a detailed and patient reply. It does feel a bit overwhelming and it feels great to get such professional help. Thanks a lot!

  4. You're welcome! I had a look at your site, and I can see that you've been able to insert images with captions. Great work!

    Let me know if there's anything else that I can help with.
