    You can put "<br>" tags in you captions to get them to wrap manually, however this creates staggered heights within the thumbnail containers and messes up the inline layout.

    One thing to try would be to increase the margins around the thumbnail containers, in gallery.css

    .thumbnail img {
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: center;
    margin: 4px;
    background: #FFF;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-color: #778899;

    Change the value of margin from 4px to 15px and see if that makes things look better.

    A simple fix would be to increase the size of your small thumbnails in the Plogger options page so the captions would fit beneath them. You could also try making the caption text smaller, CSS class "thumbnail_text" in gallery.css.

    Beta 3 has 2 line wrapping, truncated captions in the galleries, entirely CSS. You can always download the theme and copy the CSS into your Beta 2 install.

    It will take some manipulation, but most of the hooks should be the same.
