Is there a known bug with featured image captions and excerpts?

I have found that when I switched to excerpt view if the featured image has a caption it displays incorrectly on the front page. Instead of not displaying at all on the front page, or displaying under the image the caption appears as the first line of the excerpt as if it's the first line of the article. I have actually had similar problems with other themes. Any way to fix this?

Thanks.

What is your version of Atahualpa and WP?
What is the URL point to the issue?

"What is your version of Atahualpa and WP?" The latest of both: Wordpress 3.0.4 and Atahualpa 3.6.1.

"What is the URL point to the issue?"

http://www.singledudetravel.com/ - on our latest post "Central America: “The Stepping-Stone”" (if it hasn't scrolled down by the time you read this) you will see what looks like the first line of the post "Costa Rican Chicas" but really that should simply be the featured image capture.

I have a similar (but worse problem) with WP Cover theme where sometimes it shows some of the [caption] code. That's why I thought it might be some kind of a known issue.

Thank you.

How are you defining the thumbnail? as a featured image? or do you use a plugin?
please attach a copy of your settings (ato->export/import settings)

Just using the normal built in functionality. There's no plugins involved that I know of. Here is the settings and screen shot of the image definition.


Here you go. Thanks.

Here is a screen shot and the actual code involved:

HTML Code:
[caption id="attachment_183" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Costa Rican Chicas"]<a href="http://www.singledudetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/costa-rican-chicas.jpg"><img class="size-medium wp-image-183" title="Costa Rican Chicas" src="http://www.singledudetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/costa-rican-chicas-300x241.jpg" alt="Costa Rican Chicas" width="300" height="241" /></a>[/caption]
Thanks.

it's not a bug, the [caption..] is a short code, it gets expanded into HTML code. All html is stripped from a excerpt or ignored by default.

You need to look at your site when the issue appears. Then look at the the browsers 'view source' option to look at the code that was generated. Now find what the [caption] shortcode was changed to and add that HTML to the 'Do not exclude' section of the excerpt page.

Is there a chance this just isn't fixable? The only thing I could find to add to exclude was the <div> tag but adding that to exclude created other worse formatting errors...

Thanks.
