    Hello, I have a question regarding the alt text function.
    alt="" become visible but the value shown is from title field .is that normal ?

    for example , the first case
    *title : blank
    alternative text : test

    result , no alt value shown.

    <img src="http://...02/IMG_68501.jpg" alt=""></img>

    the second case
    *title : test
    alternative text : blank
    result

    <img src="http://...02/IMG_68501.jpg" alt="test"></img>

    this time I have value for alt="test" but I don't want to be visible in the page.
    Is there any workaround available to solve this ?

    thanks

    here we go.
    http://throughmyviewfinder.co.uk/slide-l/

    This link contain 3 uploaded images.
    For the second one ,I have filled in the edit image section the alt text field with brainstorming essentials name , title left blank.No shown on the page (that's ok), but in the code alt="" (in empty).

    For the last image, I have filled the title field in edit image section with test name, alt text field left blank , the name appears in the code if you can see in firebug alt="test" (strange) and also it appears as a name on the page (not so good for me) .
    Hope this helps, thank you for your time.

    If you switch to the default WP theme, do these problems still occur?

    Also, try deactivating your plugins to see if any might be causing this to happen.

    I just tried to switch back to the default theme but the gallery don't appear at all :) perhaps because in this child theme , the images don't need to be "inserted" in the post , just uploaded and will be ok.

    Also with all the plugins disabled, the problem is still there, the same story.

    Have you asked the developers for help with this? http://wpshower.com/forums/forum.php

    These forums only support themes from the repository on this site, so they may be a better source of help with what looks to be a theme problem.

    yes, I have asked ...I am waiting for an answer from there too.I thought it can be a general problem .

    LE: I have created a new test page and this time I have used the insert pics function in order to add images to post .Things are ok but that's not helping me because the child theme can't work as I told before with inserted images (only uploaded but not inserted into the post).

    I'll try to find an answer from there but if someone know a workaround will be just great !
    best regards,
