  • JCE Pro 2.9.6 released

This is a maintenance update to fix a number of bugs reported since the last update, and adds improvments to the handling of the <figure> and <figcaption> tags as an alternative method for creating image captions.

Figure and FigCaption improvements

The <figure> and <figcaption> tags provided a way for content creators to display captions on images and other media, and has been available as an alternative caption option in JCE by applying the Figure option from the Format list to a selected image. Doing so would wrap the image in a <figure> tag, with an associated <figcaption> tag for the image caption. This caption content was limited to single line text (although some formatting, like bold, underline, classes etc, could be applied), but this has now been improved to allow for block level formatting, eg: Heading1, Heading2, Paragraph etc. and multi-line text.

The <figure> and <figcaption> tags can be removed from the image by toggling the Figure option again in the Format list.
