Alternative text for images

Alternative text for images

Is it possible to set Alternative text for images in a gallery? I have looked at the manage images area and do not see a place to set alt text.
Tks

no, power gallery does not set the images alt text.

you can edit the /galleries/<selected gallery>/index.php file (where <selected gallery> is the active gallery type) and change the alt tag:

php:
alt=""



to:

php:
alt="'.str_replace('"', '\"', $row_images['title']).'"



which will use the title for the alt tag

I have replaced the code with teh suggested code and am now getting a code error in Dreamweaver CS5.5 . here is the whol line including the revised alt code.:

<a href="<?php echo($fullsizeImgSrc); ?>" rel="lightbox-pg<?php echo($random ); ?>" name=""><img src="<?php echo($imagePath); ?>" alt="'.str_replace('"', '\"', $row_images['title']).'" title="<?php echo($i . '####'); ?>" width="<?php echo($thumbnailInfo['width']); ?>" height="<?php echo($thumbnailInfo['height']); ?>" /></a>


I can't see any problems, but dreamweaver reports code error with teh changes.

the line looks fine to me, sometimes I have Dreamweaver report an error when one does not exist. Does the gallery work in the browser? That is the true test.

alt tag changes

With the original code I see the following when I view source.

alt=""

when I insert the suggested code I see this when I view source:

alt="'.str_replace('"', '\"', $row_images['title']).'"

I see, we are working from different version of the power gallery files. try changing

php:
alt="'.str_replace('"', '\"', $row_images['title']).'"



to:

php:
alt="<?php echo(str_replace('"''\"'$row_images['title'])); ?>"
