    Hi there

    Is it me, or are thumbnails not being given an alt attribute?
    I'm swaying towards newbie error but just thought i'd check here before throwing in the towel for an alternative slider plugin.

    w3c validator is throwing out errors re missing alt tags

    I realise w3c validaton is not the be all and end all, but its great for digging out newbie errors

    Thanks :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for using EasyRotator for WordPress. The alt attributes are specifically designed to provide alternate content for the purpose of accessibility. If you have specified titles, then alternate text has already been associated with the main photos for the benefit of such populations. Thus, also providing alternate text for thumbnail images is somewhat redundant; that's why it's not possible to do this directly within the editor application.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill
