View Full Version : ALT text in product photos

Please give us the option to set the ALT Text for each product photo that get's uploaded. This would be a move in the right direction for better SEO. At the moment the ALT Text is just made up of the filename.

i think we need to pull the $title or $pptitle or whatever it is and place that inside the Alt text even with the description too that would be sweat eh?
alt ="$title $description" i'm down with that!
ChuckS your thoughts on accomplishing this ?

That's one option. ALt text for each photo would mean the ability to have a more detailed description for the photo.
Photo 1: Sony ABC123 monitor - front view
Photo 2: Sony ABC123 monitor - rear view
It would also go a long way to helping people with disabilities who use special devices (that rely heavily on the ALT tags) to view webpages. The first part of European Union disabilioty legislation came in to force last year requiring certain types of websites to comply with accessability guidelines for disabled people.

It could be done and I will look into it in the future whenever we open a new beta. Although that will be some time away ;)
Since June 2005 I have been working on either Reviewpost or Classifieds in some way form or the other so I am actually enjoying a bit of a break at this point since both programs had quite a bit of an overhaul more so than a normal release.
