When uploading an image, Wordpress reads the description meta data from the jpg via
wp_read_image_metadata and inserts it into the
post_content field when adding the attachment via
But when adding a image to the editor in Wordpress, it looks for the caption in the
post_excerpt field via
What I'd like is just some continuity, in that when our images are uploaded, the field populated by WordPress for the images meta description is the one used for the caption when placing an image in the editor.
Can anyone suggest a way I can hook into any of these functions in order to match up the process? I don't really care which way I fix it, although I tend to think that
post_excerpt leads to less database overhead since it's a 'smaller' field.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
