How to put author name and upload date under thumbnails?


Standard galleries display thumbnail and title (as in

Besides that, I want it to show the author name and upload date below the thumbnails.

My guess is that it should be set at album-gallery.php file at line 76, but I can’t find what are the variable names for these 2 new informations. How can I find it?

Thanks again,

Title:  <?php  echo rtmedia_title (); ?>
Upload date:  <?php echo get_rtmedia_date_gmt();?>
Author Name:  <?php rtmedia_author_name ( true ); ?>


Hello @Felipe_Augusto_Marx,

As @illusionsglass suggested, you can get author name and upload date using rtmedia_author_name () and get_rtmedia_date_gmt() functions.

You need to override following template files in your theme:

album-gallery-item.php and media-gallery-item.php

Thanks @illusionsglass for your great support !

Thank you.

(I’d also rather having regular HTML pagination instead of ajax pagination, is there a simple way to change it? Besides that, the URL of each link on pagination - - leads me to a 404 error)

Thanks again,


Hello @Felipe_Augusto_Marx,

rtMedia uses Backbone to handle load more / pagination. You also need to filter the JSON response which is handled by Backbone.

Please refer this documentation which describes the same with code snippet ->
