    Hi Ernest,
    I try to “Enabling Attachment Search”.

    Question 1:

    How to show Image “Caption” in “Advanced Description Field”?

    I try: {captionfield} or {caption} but non of them working.

    Question 2:

    My Gallery have an Attachment Page, all of them have a parent page.
    How to show “Parent Page Title” in “Advanced Description Field”?

    Later, i will ask you “Parent Custom Field”.

    That’s all..
    Thank’s for your explanation.
    I really appreciated.

    Thank you for all the details, it helps us a lot!

    1. The image captions are stored as the excerpt, so you can use this configuration for it:
    In that case, the {titlefield} pseudo variable will contain the excerpt, which is the caption.

    2. That is only possible programmatically via the asp_results filter hook. Based on your description, something like this for a custom code:

    add_filter( 'asp_results', 'asp_parent_content_to_attachment', 10, 1 );
    function asp_parent_content_to_attachment( $results ) {
    	foreach ($results as $k=>&$r) {
    		if ( $r->content_type == 'attachment' ) {
    			$r->content = get_the_title( wp_get_post_parent_id($r->id) );
    	return $results;

    I have not been able to test this, but it should be close to an actual solution.
