I would like to add a link to the caption of a photo in one of my posts. I can type in the HTML for the link in the caption, but when I publish the post the link gets removed.

How do you add a link to a caption? This would be really useful for giving photo credit.

See my answer on question 3097 for a possible solution.

Do you want the link under the photo, on top of the photo, or when you click the photo is goes to the caption?

Under the photo and associated with the image in the caption field when you upload it and in your media gallery. – Joe Lencioni Sep 17 '10 at 12:40
