HTML5 Figure and Figcaption Elements – Beginners Guide for Web Developers – 008

HTML5 Figure and Figcaption Elements – Beginners Guide.

This tutorial is connected from the previous HTML5 tutorial, the “HTML5 Time Element“.

In this tutorial, you will know and learn about HTML5 Figure and Figcaption elements.

Figure is an element for content that’s essential to the understanding of the content, the main content of the page. Figure can be used for images, tables, code examples and etc.

So, I may suggest you to put at least 3 images on your img folder from our boilerplate folder.

Now,  that you have your 3 images, let’s make an example of calling one image and put it to our figure element with a figcaption below it. In the figcaption element, you can put who is the author of that image, portfolio or something relevant to the object that you have called in your figure element.

Add this line of code under your first header tag which the “Our HTML5 Site header 1 is located.

  1. <figure>
  2. <img src="img/lion.jpg" width="400" height="200" alt="">
  3. <figcaption>This animal can be found in the forest.</figcaption>
  4. </figure>

Here’s the example output when you insert the line of code on your recent HTML5 document.

As you can see, the HTML5 figure and figcaption elements tell your browsers that they are related. More importantly that they are related within our article.

So, let’s add the two remaining images on our HTML5 content.

  1. <figure>
  2. <img src="img/lion.jpg" width="400" height="200" alt="">
  3. <img src="img/panda.jpg" width="400" height="200" alt="">
  4. <img src="img/turtle.jpg" width="400" height="200" alt="">
  5. <figcaption>This animal can be found in the forest.</figcaption>
  6. </figure>

Here’s our output when we added the new line of code.

Conclusion.

We have now the three images on our HTML5 content and our figcaption is going to be relating to all of these images. So, you can certainly nest more images than one within a figure element. Also, it means that the figcaption has to do with all of the images within a figure element.

Take note that you can also use the figure element to wrap lines of code, caption to describe your code, canvass, SVG and many more. So, you can use figure element to a lots of things that the content is essential to the document, or to the understanding of the document.
